The instruction of the medical units on any medication that guarantees the life of a citizen is always taken care of, ”he explained.

– What do you think of López Obrador’s statement that doctors have to buy the medicine if there is no pharmacy?
“I believe that it is an expression of our President as a call to the sensitivity of all human beings and a call to health culture; I do not see it badly from that point of view, on the contrary, it is an exercise of reflection, of consciences. It certainly does not imply that responsibility should be put aside, as the Government we have that responsibility and governments know it, ”he replied.
