The Undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell, indicated that with the declaration of this stage the Mexican Health System will anticipate the arrival of Phase 3, which “is inevitable”.
“We’ve had a slow transmission process, but we’re about to reach a turning point where the contagion curve rises, in Mexico we have not yet reached the turning point and that is why we have a better opportunity to contain the contagion, this is the moment and that is why we want to declare phase two ”, declared López-Gatell.
