Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Mexico’s president thanks people for concern after COVID-19 infection” – below is their description.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Monday thanked residents for their concern over his COVID-19 diagnosis last month, saying he forged ahead and the country would continue fighting the virus.
The president said on Jan. 24 he had tested positive for COVID-19.
He also responded to questions about whether he would make the use of face masks a requirement, saying there is “no authoritarianism” in the country, but that people must assume their responsibility to fight the virus.
Obrador added he expects the economy to grow five per cent this year as the country recovers from the coronavirus pandemic. In 2020, the gross domestic product (GDP) shrank by 8.5 per cent, according to a preliminary estimate, the sharpest contraction since the 1930s.
