No Third Wave Yet/First-Dose Vaccination of Seniors Nears End

By Sofía Hanna | Mon, 04/26/2021 - 11:22

Third wave. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said that there had been no increase in COVID-19 cases, so the authorities assume there will not be a third wave soon. “The reality is that, fortunately, there are fewer infections. That is the report at the beginning of the week. But (cases are) decreasing; there is not an upward trend that could mean or that could represent that there is going to be a third wave.”

 

COVID-19 vaccines. López Obrador reported that this week the campaign to vaccinate older adults, at least with the first dose, would be completed. He added that due to the number of cases in India, Mexico would not demand the agreed shipment of vaccines. “In the contract that was made with them, they were going to deliver us another equal quantity of vaccines and we already told them no, they are going to need them. We understand their situation; it is a way of expressing our solidarity.”

 

Reform of the judiciary. AMLO addressed the judiciary reform, whose objective is to combat corruption and nepotism within the judicial branch. He said the reform would mean that “all Mexicans are protected, that there is no corruption in the judiciary, that influence would end and that the judiciary would maintain its independence, its autonomy, its true independence.”
