Undersecretary of Health Hugo López-Gatell said that Mexico is “a few days away from entering Phase 3 ” of the protocol for controlling the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic in the country. This statement was made at the end of the daily evening press conference at the National Palace where the official gives daily technical reports on the progress of the disease and strategies to contain it.
“We have not wanted to alarm the population, but we have wanted to make the information known as it is,” López-Gatell said, recalling that the advance of a pandemic is progressive and that it can occur so quickly that it does not allow adaptation of the Health System. even though it takes weeks in the conversion process.
The official again asked the population to pay extreme attention and follow the exhortation he made very emphatically a few weeks ago: Stay home, because, he pointed out, it is the only way to reduce infections and therefore save lives.
“When Phase 3 comes – there are few days left, very few days for the start of Phase 3-, we will have a very accelerated progression of this problem and it will be irreversible […] We have very few days left to do it vigorously and avoid being in contact with other people as long as possible, “insisted the undersecretary.
