In a press conference, Mario Delgado assured that the Ministry of Finance itself will determine how many million of these 109 trusts will go to the health sector and to purchase the vaccine against COVID-19.

“On the issue of trusts that the Treasury will determine, of those 68 billion, which part is reimbursed for health care and which part remains as support that will continue to be given on a regular basis,” said Mario Delgado.

Mario Delgado assured that the beneficiaries of the support of the scientific community, victims, journalists, sports, the filmmakers and others should not be worried, because the extinction of the 109 trusts does not mean the disappearance of their support, since they do not leave to find out that the administration of the funds was changed.
