The nurse points out that he is isolated in a room in his house. As he indicated to various media, he is fine and that the symptoms began to notice on Wednesday when he got up with “nasal congestion and headache”. “I called the Oxford phone and they told me to do a PCR,” he says.
Joans is a 45-year-old nurse from Barcelona, Joan Pons, who has lived for twenty years in the British town of Sheffield and that in June he volunteered to receive the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford.
As explained in a conversation with 20minutos at the end of September, he has not had to alter his routines, it must be done, until August, one analysis per month and one PCR weekly. And that he had been negative for twelve and all, even after being confined with his daughter when he returned to Sheffield after a visit to Spain in August and she tested positive. “I have to continue taking precautionary measures because the million dollar question, if the vaccine is totally effective, is not 100% resolved,” he said at the time.
