The undersecretary said that groups with high economic capacity and the ability to travel imported the virus into Mexico.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and with the highest records of infections and deaths from this disease, the president of the Employers’ Confederation of the Mexican Republic (Coparmex), Gustavo de Hoyos, released a video that has caused controversy for his content and the character that stars.
It is a clip in which the Undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell, is heard, explaining that the disease COVID-19 arrived in Mexico “imported” by social groups of high economic and financial capacity (rich) or whose occupation forces them to travel the world.
Through his Twitter account, the businessman broadcast the video of just one minute long, dated June 17, where López-Gatell is heard making the controversial message. This epidemic is characteristically an emerging disease that for Mexico was imported from social groups with high economic and financial capacity by wealthy social groups in the country, “he declared.
In the video, the image of the doctor is observed in a box but it is not seen who or who his interlocutors are, before making his statement
I do not say this pejoratively or to create unnecessary segmentation or polarization, but because there is a verified and verifiable reality that the importation occurred in people who had the economic capacity or their occupation led them to travel internationally. ”
And he added that “we were able to document that the first cases arose and subsequently remained in social relations between certain economic groups with high purchasing power.”
The businessman who broadcast the video does not mention how he obtained it and accompanied him with this message on his Twitter account:
“The daily preaching of polarization, hatred, and class struggle is disturbing an increasing number of @GovernmentMX officials. Now @HLGatell holds “social groups with high economic and financial capacity” responsible for importing # COVID19 into the country. What are they looking for? “

First case in Mexico
It should be remembered that one of the first cases of coronavirus in Mexico was confirmed on February 28 in a 35-year-old man in Mexico City who had been in Italy on business and arrived in Mazatlan.
The rest of the infections would have entered the country on private flights from the Vail, Colorado station, particularly the Snowboard championship, where two charters were registered with almost 400 Mexicans, of whom 50 tested positive.
Part of the country’s business and financial leadership was traveling on one of those private flights that landed on March 8.
It was then reported that Jaime Ruiz Sacristán, president of the Board of Directors of the Mexican Stock Exchange (BMV), died as a result of coronavirus, had been diagnosed on March 13, after he returned from a trip to Vail, Colorado.
Mexico registers 170 thousand 485 accumulated positive cases and 20,394 deaths.
