Mexico is in a position to terminate the phase of priority attention to the covid-19 pandemic, with which a new stage in health matters will start in the country to provide the service to those who do not have social security, announced yesterday the President Andrés Manuel López Obrador during the press conference at the National Palace, in which, as every Tuesday, part of the space was occupied to give details about the health situation.

Meanwhile, the Undersecretary for Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell, reported that tomorrow the registry will begin to vaccinate children over 12 years of age against covid-19 and specified that given the drop in infections in the country, the face mask is no longer an essential sanitary measure in public spaces and it would only be recommended to wear it indoors.

Today ends a stage that has to do with preferential attention to the serious pandemic that we suffered, that we suffer, that left us with a lot of pain, a lot of sadness. We are going to end that stage and we are going to start anotherindicated the president.

Little more than two years after the World Health Organization (WHO) decreed the pandemic on a global scale, López Obrador assured that the conditions in the country are better, since the virus is giving way.

We want to inform you that we are going to continue to take care of everything related to the pandemic, but we are going to focus our main attention in health matters on the creation of the new care system with the purpose of guaranteeing the people of Mexico the right to health.

The objective, he stated, is to guarantee free health care to all those who do not have social security. He added that the strategy already operates in Nayarit and is working in 15 more states so that, as of this year, there will be quality care in the sector.

Undersecretary López-Gatell took stock of the impacts of the pandemic in the country and the progress of the vaccination campaign.

On the screens installed in the Treasury Room, he projected a table with figures in which the first 30 nations appear in order of mortality per million inhabitants, where Mexico is located, so far, in the 28th place, below are only Russia and Ukraine. Under this measurement, above are Peru and Brazil; Chile, appears in the 16th place, and the United States, in the 17th, among others.

A constructed lie was spread during a very long part of the epidemic, that we were the country with the fourth highest mortality in the world. That has already been reduced, and only some columnists from time to time insist on this lie, which was a fabrication. The objective data accessible to everyone is there to show it.

He referred that during four consecutive sessions of 15 days, the epidemiological traffic light remains green, for the first time since the pandemic was declared in the country -in March 2020-, as of May 1, the information will no longer be issued. risk alert.

The official who led the actions against covid-19 indicated that Mexico already meets four criteria established by the WHO to point towards the end of the pandemic phase: hospital occupancy is less than 2 percent, vaccination coverage is 90 percent among the adult population and 87 among all people eligible to receive it, on average there are four deaths a day and less than 300 cases a day.

Based on this, we can affirm that in Mexico we are closing the epidemic cycle and moving to the endemic one.he asserted.
