    It is a man who traveled to Italy; It is isolated and measures were taken as if the case was already confirmed
    Televisa Newscasts SOURCE: televised newscasts FROM: CDMX, Mexico February 27, 2020 | 11:19 pm CST

    The Undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo L?pez-Gatell, reported that a suspected case is analyzed for a possible coronavirus of a patient who is hospitalized at the National Institute of Respiratory Diseases (INER).

    In an interview for En Punto with Denise Maerker, he explained that the patient tested positive for the first test that was performed on Thursday morning and that he is isolated.

    On whether it would be the first positive case, he said:

    So far we have this communication because we want as we promised in almost real time to devote ourselves to events, a story about the case is a 35-year-old man who actually has the tendency to have been in the north in Italy which already with the new definition The case is a criterion for second suspicious case has mild respiratory symptoms There were some doubts there in the tweet that has been received to what he meant about mild is a clinical classification. What does it mean? That is not serious. That is, his symptoms are headache, muscle pain, fever, cough, sneezing, etc., but he does not have pneumonia. It was attended in the morning at the National Institute of Respiratory Diseases and it was decided to leave it in isolation before fulfilling a suspicious case since the INER already has the diagnostic technology to do the test, we have a reactive test means that the The test itself is positive but here the accuracy is not yet considered a diagnostic confirmation of Covid-19 because the INER diagnostic technique was barely implemented this week and is still in the process of quality verification by the national reference laboratory ”.

    The undersecretary stressed that a second test is performed.

    Exactly in the first sieve, which I insist is not yet confirmed, it was positive in the INER itself a second test was given that gave the same result, but with the same machinery, ”said Undersecretary L?pez-Gatell

    - This had not happened in any previous case?

    We had one that gave a false positive result when we were standardizing the test at the INER very early in the year and just until the verification procedure is done according to the quality standards It can already be considered in that case at the beginning of the year it was discarded, and in this one a slope ”, commented Hugo L?pez-Gatell.

    The confirmation, he said, is estimated to arise throughout the early hours of Friday.

    Possibly already at dawn I have the president's call to be in the security meeting and if it were positive I would have the opportunity of the president to comment tomorrow, ”said L?pez-Gatell.

    About the measures of the case:

    Given the definition of a suspect case and in this case the first result we put him in isolation. I just **** up with the director of the Institute of Respiratory Diseases who confirms that he is in perfect condition is stable with mild symptoms and in an isolated room and now the contacts that are currently being studied are initially five relatives and are precisely under study and there will be other contacts We will have to study.

    In his Twitter account, Undersecretary L?pez-Gatell wrote that it is a case with mild symptoms, which, after having obtained a positive result to Covid-19 in the INER, “a second sample is being analyzed at the Institute of Epidemiological Diagnosis and Reference (Indre).

    “The diagnosis is not yet final. As soon as the tests are finished we will announce the result, ”he said.

    Tonight, the Ministry of Health reported that there is also a suspicious case of the new coronavirus in the state of Hidalgo, which is waiting for the results of the confirmatory test.

              The doctor stressed that there must be confidence in the population that everything is controlled and asked that the recommendations given in previous days be followed, such as not waving, kissing, among others.

              It is important that there is no alarm in the population, everything is controlled. There is no reason to suspend events because there is no danger. ”

              Roberto Bernal explained that the diagnosis of the infected woman received him in the morning. In addition, he explained that he arrived from Italy asymptomatic and that he will have his treatment at home, since it is not necessary to hospitalize it.

              He also mentioned that international measures are already being taken, such as checking the people who were on the plane with the infected woman, between two to three seats around him "both on the international flight, like the other from Aeromexico."

              Finally, they said they have both medications and medical equipment necessary to address this disease.

                The Mexican government reported that it analyzes a new confirmed coronavirus carrier, but that it is asymptomatic and is in the central state of Mexico, in addition to eight possible suspected cases in Jalisco, Aguascalientes, Guanajuato and Veracruz.

                Although the two COVID-19 tests were positive, the man has no symptoms, so it is not considered as one of the four official cases in Mexico, explained Jos? Luis Alom?a, director of Epidemiology of the Ministry of Health.

                "It is a carrier ... but it has not developed signs and symptoms, and this is something that you have surely seen and read, it is happening practically all over the world," said Alomy.

                  Possible fifth case of Covid-19 in Mexico
                  An Edomex woman is in isolation by giving positive, but has no symptoms.

                  MEXICO CITY.- The Ministry of Health (Ssa) confirmed that there are four positive cases of coronavirus and a carrier in the country, that is, a patient who tested positive, but has no symptoms.

                  In a press conference, Jos? Luis Alom?a, general director of Epidemiology, explained that the carrier, from the State of Mexico, will continue his period of isolation until he is 14 days old.

                  Hugo L?pez-Gatell Ram?rez, Undersecretary of Health Prevention and Promotion, said that the coronavirus is not considered an emergency, given its characteristics.

                  "The new coronavirus does not meet the characteristics to be an emergency. It is an epidemic, but not an emergency. Not all epidemics are an emergency," he said.

                  The official made a comparison of that virus with the AH1N1 flu that emerged in 2009.
                  Health authorities said that what the international news transmits does not correspond to reality. (Reform Agency)

                  "Today, Mexico is not the country where the epidemic began and there is already scientific and technical information about this virus, its mortality, its behavior," he explained.

                  "When the 2009 epidemic began, that information was not known because it was first lived in Mexico. That changes the measures that must be taken today. Today they are less demanding because Mexico is not the center of the epidemic and already has information on the new virus. "

                  He reported that the number of cases accumulated in the world total 85 thousand 403, of which more than 96 percent are those that occurred in China.

                  "It does not mean that these accumulated cases are still there, this disease lasts 7 to 10 days, more or less is the duration of the infected period," he said.

                  There is low risk in Mexico by Covid-19

                  Gustavo Reyes Ter?n, head of the Coordinating Commission of National Institutes of Health and High Specialty Hospitals, estimated that a higher percentage of cases of coronavirus will have asymptomatic disease or mild disease, and most likely do not seek medical attention.

                  "The risk at this time for the population is low. This may change, but at this time the risk is low and daily activities can continue," he said.

                  He also stressed that it is important to respect the confidentiality of the infected persons.

                      Who is the sixth man infected with coronavirus in Mexico, the case considered serious
                      The elderly person arrived in the country on February 21 and according to health authorities had contact with few people
                      March 7, 2020

                      The uncertainty and fear of contracting coronavirus rises in Mexico every time the health authorities confirm a new infected, such is the case of a senior citizen who tested positive for COVID-19 in the State of Mexico.

                      According to the Undersecretary of Health Prevention and Promotion, Hugo L?pez-Gatell, the sixth infected in the country, is a senior citizen who arrived in Mexico on February 21 with symptoms of the disease.

                      That same day he sought to be treated and moved to a hospital, where he was admitted immediately and his case was considered serious.

                      Although the location of the place where he receives medical attention was not mentioned, out of respect for the 71-year-old man, and to avoid harassment, L?pez-Gatell said he is delicate.

                      The patient was in northern Italy, when he arrived in the country he had contact with few people so there was no opportunity to spread the virus to more people.

                      According to the authorities, the man was treated immediately with the necessary precautionary measures and suffers from hypertension.

                      “This is the sixth case. It is the first case that came in a serious condition, it is important to take it into account, because the previous five cases had not had serious illness, had had mild or almost no symptoms, ”said the Undersecretary of Health during a press conference.

                      He also stressed that despite being a vulnerable person is stable.

                      “The good news is that it is already stable. It was stabilized in less than 24 hours. It is under observation, although in delicate condition, ”he reiterated ...
