“I understand that there will be a morning conference, it will be at the Military Camp. If they take care of all health safety measures, go ahead, if not, it is a tremendous health risk; and obviously I will sanction that type of conference, it is not correct to expose the representatives of the media that help us, they are our allies, they are part of this army (against the coronavirus). Exposing them is something serious that is not well seen by a server and the entire health team, ”said De la O.

In Nuevo León, he mentioned, “one hundred percent tests are carried out.” The secretary said that there are people who without suffering symptoms have taken the test more than 10 times, because they have some feeling of guilt for having gone to a party, or out of simple curiosity.
