The Government of Mexico received 137,200 protection lenses for medical personnel acquired from China on Monday as part of measures to combat the COVID pandemic. 19, the Office of the President of the Republic reported.
The protective team for doctors and nurses arrived in Mexico City on the ninth flight of the airlift established with China to move supplies to Mexico, the presidency said in an official statement.
Protective lenses (goggles) were purchased from China by the Institute of Health for Welfare in the framework of the Government of Mexico’s strategy against COVID-19, which has caused 24,905 accumulated confirmed cases and 2,271 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic.
The Presidency’s office explained that the objective of the strategy is that health workers “carry out their work efficiently and safely in the fight against the pandemic.”
All supplies have international sanitary certifications and comply with the standards established by the Ministry of Health and the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks (Cofepris) of Mexico.
From April 8 to May 4, Mexico has received nine flights from China with equipment such as examination gloves, surgical masks, N95 protection masks, ear hanging type masks, face shields and protective glasses.
In these nine flights, 70,000 exploration gloves, 580,000 N95 protective masks, 1,284,000 surgical masks, 4,416,000 ear hanging masks, 465,400 protective masks and 297,200 protective glasses or googles have arrived.
Based on mathematical analysis, the health authorities consider that the coronavirus pandemic is in its most contagious phase and that the highest peak will be around this Wednesday and then begin to decline.
The Government of Mexico has ruled out that the curfew will be implemented or public health measures will be militarized, even in the critical phase of the pandemic that is expected to occur this week.
