As for the damage caused by the meteorological phenomenon here in southern Sinaloa, specifically in Escuinapa, Quirino Ordaz Coppel said that there are still sequelae in some schools and roads, but that work is being done to repair them as soon as possible.


Nayarit is an entity that requires a lot of support, assured Governor Antonio Echevarría García and his request to the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, to lower Fonden’s resources to rebuild the towns affected by the hurricane. that had a positive response

The state executive stressed that the entity urgently needs support to dignify the hospital infrastructure. Health centers are over 50 years old and require full support.

The civil hospital, with 68 years, is already insufficient to meet the demand of the Nayarit citizens. Before there was a population of 700 thousand and today there are one million 200 thousand inhabitants.

Echevarría García said that the president is sensitive and is in favor of dignifying the medical units of the country so that citizens have better care in this state, which had been very abandoned, the governor reiterated.
