Those responsible for the mistake were employees of the Cecosf de Liquiñe dependent on the Municipal Corporation, therefore, the attorneys demanded from the mayor of Panguipulli that their children undergo examinations to rule out any future consequences.

They also asked that it be in a private clinic because now they distrust the public health officials who serve in the commune.

The Radio asked Mayor Pedro Burgos if they will agree to the attorney-in-fact demand and he replied that they are working to fulfill the commitment.

The authority believes that this week they could be clear about the day and place of the care.
