Vaccine Website/Camargo investigation

By Sofía Hanna | Wed, 02/03/2021 - 11:56

COVID-19 vaccine website. The government unveiled a website where residents can register to receive the vaccine against COVID-19. “It will be available permanently,” said Minister of the Interior Olga Sánchez Cordero. She also pointed out that registering earlier did not mean registrants would get the vaccine earlier. The registry will be considered when there are more vaccines and after the high-risk population has been vaccinated, she added. 

 

Prisoners to be vaccinated. Sánchez also announced that those in prisons and nursing homes would be vaccinated. “They have the right to health enshrined in article 4 of the Constitution,” she said. “Those in detention centers are also going to be vaccinated. Epidemiologically speaking, these units may have an increased risk of infection.” Hugo López-Gatell, Deputy Minister of Health, stated that for two days now, there has been a downward trend in COVID cases but that this did not mean that the pandemic had ended. 

 

Camargo investigation into burned bodies. Sánchez Cordero mentioned that the federal government will work with the Tamaulipas authorities to find those responsible for the 19 shot and burned bodies found inside two vehicles in Camargo. “I would like to call on the Chiapas authorities so that we can act with greater speed; it was agreed to have a federal team in place, coordinated by Segob and SSPC.”
