To avoid contagion of COVID-19, the Health Secretary made several recommendations to the population, such as the use of face masks, staying home and avoiding meetings and parties, however, several officials and political figures did not comply with these measures and even carried out massive events.
In August, the PRI mayor of Dolores Hidalgo, Miguel Ángel Rayas caused controversy for failing to comply with his own orders, as he celebrated with dozens of guests thes XV years of his daughter, when he had forbidden any kind of mass event.
It was the same daughter of the mayor who shared photographs of her great fiesta birthday, in which guests were seen without wearing masks and without keeping a healthy distance.
The action of Miguel Ángel Rayas not only unleashed disagreement among users of social networks, but also in the business and commercial union, and in political opponents, who even accused him of being a “hypocrite”.
