La Jornada – There will be 10,000 centers to apply the anti-Covid vaccine


#Mexico #City. #Next week another 53,000 doses of #Pfizer’s #Covid-19 vaccine will arrive in the country and as of #January 11, 436,800 doses are expected to arrive in each of the next three weeks, announced #President #Andrés #Manuel López #Obrador. “#With #Pfizer we cover, that is the estimate, the entire group of doctors, nurses, health workers, which is estimated at 750 thousand people.”

#When detailing the logistics organized by the federal government for the arrival of the biological, the president explained that with the first 53,000, the vaccination of medical personnel in #Mexico #City and the state of #Mexico will be advanced and 8,775 will be sent to #Saltillo. ; #As of #January 11, when the first package of 436,800 doses arrives, it will begin to be channeled directly to the states, for a broad application to medical personnel, which will be complemented by two more shipments from #Pfizer on #January 18 and 25 .

The plan designed by the authorities contemplates the reception, in the first quarter of 2021, of 8 million doses of the vaccine from the #Chinese pharmaceutical company #CanSino – 2 million in #January and the rest between #February and #March -, in addition to 3.2 million of #Pfizer doses in #February and 5 million for #March. #With this, López #Obrador pointed out, it is planned, with the support of the #Army and the #Navy, the distribution to the communities to enter the second stage of immunization to the elderly, starting with the oldest.

#For this purpose, he added, it would operate in a similar way to the delivery of welfare programs support in the 10,000 integrating centers that operate in that program. “#We are already working on this plan, the entire government is involved.” #In a third instance, he reiterated, it will be applied to the teachers of the entities where they are on a green light to speed up the return to face-to-face classes.

#During the presentation of the weekly balance of the situation of the epidemic, the #Secretary of #Health, #Jorge #Alcocer, pointed out that “in general, I can say that the trend of reduction in the country continues.” The #Undersecretary of #Health #Hugo López-Gatell asserted that between weeks 50 to 51 an initial reduction in the frequency of cases of 13 percent was detected, although this could be modified and that the decrease is in a smaller proportion, since the positivity of cases is four out of 10 tests.

#Upward trend in six entities

“The natural question is whether this is already a definite trend. The answer is: not necessarily. #This must be monitored every day ”. #In general, “there are six entities that have a rapid upward trend (#Mexico #City, #Mexico #State, #Hidalgo, #Morelos, #Baja #California and #Guanajuato), others are in the intermediate period, which are in orange, and #Chiapas and #Campeche with minimal epidemic activity ”.

López-Gatell recalled that large metropolises have greater problems in reducing epidemiological trends; #Despite this, the decrease in mobility decreed in the #Valley of #Mexico was reflected in a “reduction in the number of cases this week”, although this is not yet expressed in the number of deaths or in hospital occupancy, both in #Mexico #City as in the state of #Mexico.

#He highlighted that #Morelos and #Hidalgo show similar upward behavior in recent weeks as part of a megalopolis. #On the contrary, he highlighted that in #Chihuahua, #Zacatecas and #Durango, which had recently had a red traffic light, there is a downward trend and control of the epidemic.

#When abounding around the acquisition of vaccines, López #Obrador commented that with #Pfizer, in addition to the 1.4 million in #January, there is a commitment of another 3 million doses in #February and five in #March. #Likewise, with #CanSino, the agreement is 8 million in the first quarter, so it will be possible to comply with the first stages of vaccination to medical personnel, the elderly and later to teachers and chronically ill patients.

#At the conference where #Miguel #Hidalgo decorations were symbolically delivered to the 980 hospitals dedicated to treating patients with #Covid-19, the #President referred to the movements that at the national and international level reject vaccination. “We don’t have that problem, people are going to get vaccinated because there is a tradition. #People are confident that we are not going to apply something that will harm them, I don’t think there is any problem ”.

#He clarified that people have the freedom to choose and if they voluntarily choose not to be vaccinated, the decision is respected, “everything is voluntary, nothing by force, nothing mandatory.”

#Regarding a complaint that in #Rayón, state of #Mexico, the vaccine was applied to the director of the López #Mateos #Hospital and his entire family, the #President offered to investigate and proceed if it did indeed occur. #He emphasized that they will seek to avoid influentialism, because skipping the line in vaccination, he said, is an immoral matter.

#After announcing that he canceled his tour to the southeast this week to monitor the situation of the epidemic in the #Valley of #Mexico, he called on doctors and nurses from the states with the lowest incidence of the epidemic “to come and voluntarily help the #Mexico #City to save lives ”.
