Mexican authorities recently announced that the country exceeded 100,000 deaths from coronavirus, news that alarmed politicians, citizens and journalists, who have reacted in different ways. Among them, Carlos Loret de Mola He decided that his column on the matter would focus on the hard facts about the pandemic.
This count led him to conclude that there is no “Nothing worse to face the coronavirus than to put yourself in the hands of the government.” In the first place, he stressed that the country is the fourth to exceed 100,000 deaths, only below the United States, Brazil and Italy.
However, the El Universal journalist also highlighted that as of October this year there have been more than 203,000 additional deaths, which also consider other factors of death. This, he sentenced, means that “The situation is at least twice as bad.”
He added that in the official figures it is possible to see that deaths in public hospitals such as those of the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) or the Institute of Social Security and Services of State Workers (ISSSTE) have a fatality rate of between 25 and 45%, while in the public it reaches 10%.
For the journalist This percentage only reinforces that being in the hands of the government during the pandemic is much riskier than doing it in private hospitals. “At the IMSS it’s like a fly-by: if the sun goes down, you live; if an eagle falls, you die, ”he wrote.

He emphasized that 80% of those who died from the disease did not reach intensive care as a result of “The policy has been not to hospitalize people.”
Loret de Mola wrote that the refusal of the federal government to apply a greater number of diagnostic tests is part of those that “prevents containing the pandemic”, especially when the Mexican government refuses to comply with the recommendations made by the Mexican government World Health Organization (WHO).
Carlos Loret de Mola has constantly confronted the administration of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who recently accepted that he has differences with the Mexican journalist.
On that occasion he admitted at a press conference: ““ All freedoms are guaranteed, I have had differences with Loret de Mola for a long time, as with Pablo Hiriart, who now gives an interview to The Universal. Do you know since when I have differences with Pablo Hiriart? Since 1988. How long is that? 32 years”, said the Mexican president.
