Mexico says it is not “negligent” that countries do not know how many COVID-19 cases they have

May 28, 2020

Mexico’s Under-Secretary of State for Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell, responded to criticism from the opposition this Wednesday about the alleged lack of information about the pandemic situation in the country, declaring that no one, not even “The United States or Canada know how many real cases are in their territory. ” This should not be interpreted as negligence. “

López-Gatell held a meeting of the Senate Political Coordinating Committee on Telematics, attended by National Action Party (PAN) senators and a masked government to protest what they believe to be a lack of clarity on the part of the government in coping with the health crisis.

“How many cases are there in other countries, in the US, in Canada … The answer is that no one knows how many real cases there are in their country and this should not be interpreted as negligence,” he said.
