In particular, López affirmed that the president flew regularly to Mexico City, where he is in the National Palace, given the information that circulated that he was in a hospital.
And he denied that López Obrador had fainted during his tour, as reported by local media in Yucatán.
It is an absolute lie, it will not be the first time nor the last time, surely, that the Diario de Yucatán lies, I have already related how the events occurred ”,
“The speculations are the product of the ill will of some,” he said.
The secretary reaffirmed that López Obrador “is isolated, receiving care and resting”, for which he ruled out further effects on his health.
