We cannot be so confident, because the pandemic continues, but we are already a little calmer, ” he said.

Recognizing that this process in Yucatán has been very agile and orderly, Addy Briceño Chan stressed that the vaccine represents, for both children and adults, a life expectancy, since the pandemic, unfortunately, has left many families incomplete, so counting, even with the first dose, means a great relief and tranquility for the population.
