After two months of extreme quarantine in Puerto Rico in which we managed to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we are facing the highest rate of positive cases and hospitalizations. With no means to control the airport as our main border, we are left unable to stop the entry of tourists from the United States, the current epicenter of the pandemic. To make matters worse, many refuse to wear the mask believing themselves above local regulations and guided by disinformation campaigns led by Donald Trump. Our sacrifices cannot be in vain. They are not welcome. The virus is the colony.
