This Monday the president The Mexican gave López-Gatell a boost and pointed out that “what his adversaries want” is that the Health official no longer appear at conferences, so that they can misinform people.
“I support Hugo López-Gatell, they know what they want, but nothing else that they will be left wanting, that we do not report, that Dr. Hugo López-Gatell no longer appears, so that they are the ones who prevail with disinformation, with manipulation, with yellowing, then we will continue to inform, “he explained.

“In fact, despite the regrets the pandemic is losing strength, fortunately, I returned from the trip to Washington and on Friday I met with the Health sector to receive the report on how we are doing in terms of the pandemic, and only in 9 of the 32 states there is an increase in the number of infected cases, in 23 states it is already stable or is decreasing. That is very good news ”, he explained
The Mexican president considered that his opponents “have launched it against Dr. López-Gatell”, since from the beginning they got involved with that purpose.
“From the beginning, our adversaries got involved in this matter with the purpose of doing us political harm; then we have to face the pandemic, which is the most important thing, and at the same time the disinformation, the yellowing of some media that have differences with us, either because they are spokesmen for conservatism or because they no longer have the same treatment as before. They say that what doesn’t sound logical sounds metallic.
So we have to face them and they have launched it against Dr. Hugo López-Gatell, who is a professional of the first order. Hence the one who wants to distort things the Reform, but also The financial, saying that there are more deaths in Mexico than in France and in Italy, the two newspapers. They are half-truths and half-truths are sometimes complete lies, “he said.
