President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is well and strong after having contracted COVID-19, Olga Sánchez Cordero, Secretary of the Interior, reported Monday at the morning conference.
On Sunday afternoon, López Obrador commented that he tested positive for COVID and that his symptoms were mild, for which he is already following instructions from medical personnel.
The national president said that Sánchez Cordero would be in charge of attending the ‘morning’ conferences in his absence to recover from COVID-19.
« We can say with all sincerity and frankness that the president is well and strong, coordinating matters and will attend remotely giving the necessary instructions, » explained the Secretary of the Interior at the conference.
Sánchez Cordero added that activities such as the meeting of the security cabinet will continue.
In addition, he added that President López Obrador will answer the phone call with the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, something that he defined as an important task since there is the possibility of buying the vaccine against COVID Sputnik V.
