AMLO’s scolding Alcocer

A few days ago, when leading the presentation of the Colima Aid Plan, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador urged the Secretary of Health, Jorge Alcocer, and the director of Insabi, Juan Ferrer, to solve the problem of the lack of medications.

“But we already have to finish solving the problem of the supply of medicines, this is for Juan Ferrer, this is for Dr. Alcocer: I no longer want to hear that there are no medications and I do not want excuses, of any kind.”

The head of the Executive reproached his collaborators that “he cannot sleep soundly if there are no medicines to care for the sick.”
