“The Secretary of the Interior, Adán Augusto López Hernández, will represent me at press conferences and other events. Courage, with the usual affection!”
The test carried out by López Obrador on January 10 was due to the fact that in the morning he woke up “hoarse”, however he did not cancel his usual morning press conference. In his conference, the president said that he considered it was only the flu and not a Covid-19 infection.
It should be remembered that it was on January 24, 2021 when President López Obrador was infected for the first time with the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, within the framework of the second wave of infections in the country.
