The first hours of this Friday, January 1, medical staff of the Hospital de Especialidades del Centro Médico Nacional La Raza, made a demonstration to demand medical supplies to attend the pandemic of COVID-19.

Dozens of health workers They blocked Vallejo Avenue, in front of the Hospital de Especialidades, in the Azcapotzalco mayor’s office, to show the lack of material that protects them from the SARS CoV-2 virus, while protested influentialism that they claimed have carried out managers in the application of the vaccine.

The protesters, who carried several cards with protest legends, wore face masks and gloves to give to their colleagues who were leaving the hospital guard.

“From the authorities and from Zoé Robledo (director of the IMSS) we have only received promises, applause, minutes of silence and meanwhile our colleagues are dying because they do not have tests to detect the virus, supplies such as face masks, gloves, etc. and now vaccines are only for officials and politicians “said one of the nurses who participated in the protest.

They warned that they will continue with their mobilizations until they are attended by the authorities, for which they closed the circulation in the lanes with south direction, at the height of the Interior Circuit, for which the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) recommended that motorists use the Insurgentes Norte and Cuitláhuac avenues as road alternatives.

This Thursday, December 31, Dr. Ana Paola de Cosio Farías, pediatrician and endocrinologist at the Pediatric Hospital of the Centro Médico Nacional Siglo XXI, resigned his position after denouncing that there is “Gandallismo” and “inequity” by the health authorities that apply the vaccine against COVID-19 to medical personnel.

Through a video broadcast on social networks, the doctor accused that there are medical personnel who do not appear on the vaccination lists, but there are administrative personnel who are receiving the vaccine on the grounds that they are in charge of COVID-19 teams, but “they never get in and are never exposed.”

“Now it turns out that we do not appear on the vaccination lists when there are administrative personnel who are receiving the vaccine arguing that they are in charge of COVID teams, but they never enter (the areas) and are never exposed”, he assured.

In the 1:40-long clip, he said that “There have also been services that have received the vaccine, when they are services that are not in the first line”, revealed without specifying which areas he was referring to.

Ana Paola de Cosio assured that that day (December 31) she was assigned again to the respiratory area “when there are already vaccinated personnel who could be considered to enter to do these tasks. And when I asked that someone who has already been vaccinated be considered, they threatened me that they would accuse me of abandoning my job, “he revealed.

In this situation, said the specialist doctor, “I have decided to resign due to the inequity and the gandalism of the authorities, the lack of vaccination for those of us who are on the front line and the authorities do have the vaccine and they are the ones who send us to be exposed”, he accused.

The doctor concludes her video by assuring that although she is leaving the IMSS, she wishes to make the situation public “so that the situation we are experiencing is known and that several colleagues who are going through the same thing, can have an answer and a solution,” she concluded.
