Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- With more force than the first and second, the third wave of Covid-19 infections in Sinaloa is mainly impacting the young population.

“The death of a child is extremely painful for everyone, but it is normal that this is happening because the elderly are all vaccinated, most of them, and now it is affecting other ages. The governor told me right now that we are going to receive 500 thousand vaccines with Those of us will solve the whole Sinaloa problem now, “he said.
