This Saturday alone, the capital received 42 doctors and nurses from Sonora, one of the most numerous that has arrived in the capital, which remains on the red of the COVID-19 Traffic Light before the rise in infections with which the peak of hospitalizations registered last May.
The IMSS reported that the personnel who have arrived in the capital are joining Operation Chapultepec, which includes more than 600 medical professionals who will reinforce their colleagues who are fighting the pandemic.
The call was made by the general director of Social Security, Zoe Robledo, to guarantee care for patients with COVID-19 in regions where the pandemic has the highest incidence, such as the cases of Mexico City, the State of Mexico and Baja California. It is also focused on supporting health personnel who for more than 10 months have had an intense activity to save lives.
