Oaxaca de Juárez.— The federal undersecretary for Prevention and Promotion of Health, Hugo López-Gatell Ramírez, was captured this Sunday in a restaurant in Playa Zipolite, in San Pedro Pochutla, Costa de Oaxaca.
The photographs, which began to spread through social networks, show the Health official, spokesman for the federal government for the emergency by Covid-19, accompanied by a woman in a restaurant of the El Alquimista hotel, in Zipolite.
The journalist from the Coast, Omar Gasga, shared the images in which the federal official is seen without a mask in this tourist destination in Pochutla.
López-Gatell Ramírez arrived on the Oaxacan coast on December 31, 2020, on a flight in which he was also photographed from Mexico City to the airport of Huatulco to spend the end of the year, and whose images also sparked controversy because he did not carry mask in the right way, covering her mouth and nose, even though she was holding a phone call at the time.

In the evening lectures, López-Gatell himself has insisted on the use of a mask in places where appropriate physical distancing is not possible.
Likewise, it has repeatedly recommended that the Mexican population stay at home if it is not necessary, in order to contain the chain of infections.
Until this Sunday, Covid-19 infections in Mexico have accumulated to a total of one million 448 thousand 755 cases since the start of the pandemic in the country, and 127 thousand 213 deaths.
