Herrera is a doctor, but his work is purely administrative and does not directly care for any patient with COVID-19 nor is he responsible for transfers or supplying them with any medication.
Given this, the Coahuila Health Secretariat sent a statement in which he confirmed the vaccination of the head of Health Jurisdiction Number 2 and argued that it was a legitimate act, because in September the official tested positive for covid-19, in addition to “continuously supervising units in person medical centers in which covid-19 patients are directly cared for ”and“ maintain direct contact ”with medical personnel.
