The federal undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell, was caught vacationing on a beach in Oaxaca, after it was announced that the press conferences to present the daily report on the coronavirus were suspended from December 31 to January 4.
Photographs disseminated on social networks show López-Gatell in a restaurant allegedly on Zipolite beach, in San Pedro Pochutla. In this regard, users of the networks disapproved of the federal official having traveled, considering that it is an incongruity to recommend that people stay at home to prevent the spread of the virus and he goes to a tourist destination.
“While the vaccination is a disaster and there it says nothing. irresponsibility they have managed to make us the country with the highest mortality rate per 100,000 inhabitants, “Brenda Ruiz said on Twitter.
“While in Mexico there is a hospital saturation and a red traffic light, the one who is in charge of the strategy to contain the pandemic, does irresponsible tourism“said user Andromaco64.
For his part, Alex Lora said: “You don’t know how to lead by example @HLGatell. So you want people to take the pandemic seriously? Such a real mother!”
Days ago another photograph was released where the official is seen on top of a plane without a mask.
In Mexico there are 127 thousand 213 deaths from coronavirus and one million 448 thousand 755 cases.
