      The metropolitan area remains the most affected, followed by San Cristobal de las Casas, Comitan, Palenque, Tapachula and Tonala. Pandemic out of control in Chiapas, despite the refusal of the Assistant Secretary for Prevention and Health Promotion, accused in the Federal District that this system has fallen by not recognizing the seriousness of the matter is in command of Chiapas monitoring and unrest that has left the audience not to recognize the seriousness of the matter.
      The comparison is made, is that to be the Federal District with 33 million people in Chiapas with 2 thousand 100 cases, it is also the number of cases.

      While the authorities claim that "everything is under control" and "something that was expected, and that people have to learn to live together", in Chiapas the pandemic actually fired, and there are families with respiratory health problems.
      After the long, tedious meetings, has not declared any emergency plan, and what was expected on the social distance, there is nothing to prevent the combis are more people, or limit the cinema attendance, as to suspend the ranks, nothing has been planned, while patients remain on the streets, and increasing cases of influenza.
