The director of Jael Joyería in A Coruña, Tono Carabel, attended yesterday an act of recognition to the groups whose work is key in the coronavirus crisis.Onda Cero paid tribute to several social groups (security forces, essential service workers, transport workers and, of course, health workers) who led the citizen effort to overcome the Covid-19 pandemic. “At the height of the crisis, in the midst of confinement, when we were all wondering what would happen next, we have been fortunate to have people who have made us feel safe,” said Carabel in his speech at the event.
Jael Joyería was in charge of honoring the National Police, represented at the event by its senior chief in Galicia, José Luís Balseiro. Carabel stated that the corps “has spared no effort or hours of work to protect us from an invisible and often incomprehensible enemy, and in many cases exposing themselves to contagion, as shown by the known numbers of infected agents”.
Jael’s director highlighted the “professionalism, rigor and also the left hand” of the police officers: “Nobody better than them has interpreted the confusion and fear that the citizens felt, especially in those terrible weeks of March and April. No one like them, like the officers and the commanders who day by day transmitted reassuring news to us, have worked so that the citizens could remain calm. They have been, during the worst health crisis in living memory, our guide on how to contribute to this collective victory that we are still working on in the face of the coronavirus”.
