1000 Covid 19 deaths in one day... AMLO acknowledges inefficiency in counting deaths

Chivis Martinez Borderland Beat

1000 deaths reported yesterday surpassing daily US total---today apx 106k cases with 13k deaths...Below Guadalajara constructs a Covid19 cemetery 

Earlier I reported how difficult it was to attain Covid-19 stats from Mexico.  Furthermore, state accumulated stats did not match federal stats if in fact the federal government even had an accounting.

John Hopkins tracker from its onset, has reported the overall tally of Mexico’s cases, but were not given data to report state stats or even deaths.  That problem persists today as far as state tallies, but now it is reporting overall deaths as reported by the federal government.

 This at a time when the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, aka AMLO,     was continuing to encourage citizens to go out to eat and was recording himself at restaurants doing just that.

Most persons following Mexico agreed early on that Mexico’s numbers were grossly under-reported.  I think I referred to it as “Mexican Math”.

Today President Andrés Manuel López Obrador acknowledged that there is a problem of inefficiency in the accounting of those killed by Covid-19.

Questioned about the high death registration figures that have been released in the last two days, the President accepted that there is a “delay in information”.

He contends the reason is a pragmatic one, because the health sector personnel are, for the moment, more focused on “saving lives”.  Apparently in Mexico one must choose which part of a deadly crisis the country must tackle.

"Well, the numbers still seek to become current,  but there is a delay, this lag that has to do with inefficiency but also with the emergency situation because the managers, those in charge of the health sector, plus doctors, health personnel are dedicated to full time to save lives, "he said. (rather than submitting data)

"It is not given the same importance, I am not justifying it, but it happens by reporting what is happening in terms of deaths. So that delay and that delay, but we already clarified it."

"Is this situation going to continue?" He was asked.

"Yes, until it is normalized." he replied.

"But decisions are made based on these data", was interjected by a journalist.

"Yes, but we do know… we know what is happening and that is why it is reported daily, Hugo is reporting, Undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell).

“clarifications are not heard, and it can be manipulated, the most important thing, we are not going to hide anything, we are not going to lie, we have to always tell the truth, "he asserted.

López-Gatell, has said that the death toll from Covid could reach 35 thousand.

After that statement, PAN described as petty and excessive in a letter to the World Health Organization to request that they not include López-Gatell in its group of experts.

"That is meanness, it is in bad taste, it is a lack of political urbanity," AMLO criticized.

"It is good that they want to differentiate themselves from the Government, that they want to be opponents of the Government after many years that they were not, that now that we have differences, that they want to oppose everything, but there has to be a minimum of rationality, seriousness, to think about the Country, because that really seemed to me an excess, it is not correct, it is not adequate ".

Travel ban expires at the end of June

The current non-essential travel ban for land-travel to Mexico for "tourism and recreational in nature" currently expires on June 22, 2020. This action does not apply to air, rail, or sea travel.

  1. Love Mexico love Amlo, he is a great BS er

  2. Go eat tacos and be with family and friends. I strongly remember that idiot say that when this all started.. and then there was another person on here saying Mexicans will not catch this virus....

  3. Hopefully the virus is getting more cartel criminals.

  4. And the thousands of "protesters" in the Usa crying about a fetanal using with a criminal record resisting arrest and unfortunately being killed by a abusive policeman. Are protesters distancing? Taking safety precautions? Just watch the "19" numbers go up at these protests and riot cities. The Virus doesn't care if your cause is just or not. Injustice yes! Lock police and rioters up for a long time. But also an Excuse to rob and steal. "19" in Mexico? 1k per day now. Maybe 50k deaths by summers end. Brazil? AMLO/Trump both get it and...?

  5. Are tourists being allowed in?

  6. Tenemos algunos problemas serios que enfrentar para nuestra futura supervivencia. Si no podemos unirnos, es posible que no sobrevivamos. COVID-19 es el mayor fraude perpetrado contra la humanidad.
    La gente cree que el engaño es real porque eso es lo que el gobierno y los medios les dicen que crean. Los medios están controlados por el gobierno. El propósito de la pandemia fue como una excusa para un colapso económico.
    En este momento la gente no está muriendo por una pandemia. No muere más gente ahora que morir cada año. El gobierno y los medios de comunicación están alarmando a la población. Quieren que tengas miedo; El miedo es cómo te controlan.
    El plan de estos bastardos malvados es matar a la mayoría de la raza humana y esclavizar al resto. Ahora el COVID-19 no es real, pero es solo cuestión de tiempo hasta que comiencen a vacunar a toda la población mundial. Ahí es cuando millones morirán.
