MEXICO: THE AUTHORITIES DO NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE DATA OF ONE MILLION CONTAGED
The Ministry of Health of Mexico has reported this Sunday 1,006,522 accumulated cases of coronavirus, an “inconsequential” figure for the Government, which has, on the other hand, estimated at 98,542 deaths and 750,190 people recovered. The figures for the last 24 hours are 3,269 infections and 283, numbers significantly lower than those of the previous day.
For López-Gatell, the fact that Mexico exceeded one million accumulated cases this weekend has played down the importance of this situation, calling it “inconsequential”, since if “the estimated cases” are taken, this figure would have already been exceeded.
“Yesterday the media continued to highlight the issue of accumulated cases and spoke of reaching a million inhabitants. It is true but it is a limited version of the information,” he assessed during his morning speech this Sunday.
Actually, go on, “if we take the estimated cases we have more than a million, therefore it is a little inconsequential “, although, qualifies, it can be” attractive “in informative terms as it is” a round number “.
