TIJUANA, BC – At a news conference this morning, the Governor of Baja California stated that health personnel were not given protection to carry out their work in the face of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
“The same doctors that the General Hospital has are held by Social Security, and now we are seeing that they are falling like flies, because the doctors were not given protection,” said the Governor of Baja California, Jaime Bonilla in the face of the pandemic for Covid-19 coronavirus.
The Governor considered that it was useless to give protection to the doctors of the General Hospital if they were not given to those of the IMSS.
“And now we have a tremendous need. The Social Security program affected the State’s Health program, “he said.
Even Bonilla referred to the video of the actor Eugenio Derbez, in which he denounces that the doctors do not have sufficient protection or equipment.
NO … THEY ARE NOT FAKE NEWS.
HOW SAD THAT MORE TIME IS SPENT TRYING TO HIDE A TRUTH THAN SAVING LIVES.
GOD BLESS YOU.
