#At a press conference, the #Undersecretary of #Health, #Hugo López-Gatell, reported that 18,529 vaccines have been applied in four days, around 4,600 daily.

#In terms of bed occupancy, #Mexico #City has 11% of beds available in general and 15% with a fan, while the #State of #Mexico has 21% of general beds and 24% with fans.

#He explained that there will be no operations at the airport or entrances to the country to avoid contagion of the new strain of the virus that appeared in the #United #Kingdom because it is likely that this variation is already in the country, although it has not been detected.

The undersecretary pointed out: “So far we have not identified this variant in #Mexico, when we identify it, if we do identify it, we will document it as a matter of public interest and we will report it through the #National #Liaison #Center for #International #Health #Regulations to WHO ”.

#He said that there is no evidence that this variant is an additional threat to public health, although its transmissibility is 70% higher.

López-Gatell recalled that vaccination will begin in the megalopolis.
