Mexican president is once again tests positive for Covid

On Monday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador announced that he had contracted COVID-19 for the second time, claiming that his condition was light and that he would continue to work in isolation until he recovered.

Lopez Obrador, who tested positive for COVID-19 in January of last year, sounded hoarse at his morning press conference on Monday, leading him to remark that he will undergo a test later that day. "Despite the mild symptoms," Lopez Obrador wrote in a tweet, "I will stay in isolation and will only perform office work and interact online" until he recovers.

The Marxist leader, a former smoker who suffered a heart attack in 2013, also has hypertension, although Mexican officials claim his prior COVID-19 infection was minor. On December 7, Lopez Obrador received an AstraZeneca vaccination booster dose.

For the time being, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will be replaced by Interior Minister Adan Augusto Lopez during his regular morning news conferences and other official acts, according to Lopez Obrador. Critics have criticised Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto for his handling of the coronavirus outbreak, claiming he minimised its severity during the early stages of the health crisis.

Except on planes, he has rarely been seen in public wearing a face mask, and Mexico has put very limited restrictions on visitors entering the country. He has, however, been adamant about the necessity for the people to get vaccinated against the virus, and virtually all of Mexico City's adult population has received at least two injections.

As the Omicron variety spreads, Mexico is experiencing an increase in infections, with some of the sharpest increases occurring in states with major beach resorts like Cancun and Los Cabos, which attract travellers from all over the world.

Mexico, which has conducted comparatively few tests in comparison to other nations, set a new daily COVID-19 infection record on Saturday, with 30,671 new cases.
