On the other hand, the administration led by Claudia Sheinbaum enabled macro-kiosks in the esplanades of the 16 capital city halls. In a press videoconference, the president pointed out that some of these centers went so far as to extend their capacity by performing between 400 and 450 COVID-19 tests daily.

In addition to this, the Health Centers of the Secretariat of Health of Mexico City (Sedesa) also carry out medical tests to detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which can be consulted on the interactive map of the CDMX.

For his part, Sheinbaum Pardo assured that there will be no “catastrophic” scenario derived from the third epidemic wave of COVID-19 in the country’s capital.

There is no catastrophe, no one spoke of catastrophe. In January we had a maximum of hospitalizations in the city of around 8,000 people and we are estimating that since most older adults have already been vaccinated, it would not exceed 3,500.

Of course, this is being evaluated every day and depends, well, on the vaccination process being increased, there are enough beds, the “Hospital at Home” program was reactivated again, for any problem, and “Oxygen at Home” so that … if necessary, but no, we are not estimating a catastrophic scenario in the city”, Explained the official.
