In his video, the legislator assured that there are many more cases with Covid-19 in Mexico than those that the government has released, since he questioned how it is possible to determine a certain number of infected, if not enough tests are done to tell the real figures. .
“It is a truly serious matter, friends, and I just want to tell you something: that there are many more cases of Covid-19, because how can we say that there are 90 or 100 cases when we do not have sufficient evidence, or in fact there is no evidence to say how many cases of Covid-19 there are, ”he said.
In his message, the legislator said, visibly upset, that the Federal government “is worth a cucumber to what happens to Mexicans” and asked them to take care, isolate themselves and take the necessary measures.
