López Obrador, 69, who has ackowledged a historical past of coronary heart issues, wrote that he would isolate for “just a few days” in Mexico Metropolis.
“My coronary heart is one hundred pc and as I’ve needed to droop the tour, I shall be in Mexico Metropolis and celebrating, though from afar, the sixteenth birthday of (his son) Jesús Ernesto,” he wrote.
López Obrador was unwell with COVID-19 in early 2021 and recovered after receiving what he described on the time as an experimental therapy. In January 2022, he introduced he had come down with COVID-19 a second time, amid a spike in coronavirus infections in Mexico.
López Obrador declined to enact obligatory masks mandates and he refused to put on a masks even on the peak of the pandemic except it was completely vital, as on airline flights. He famously refused to make use of Mexico’s presidential jet, which he not too long ago introduced had been bought to Tajikistan.
Presidential spokesman Jesús Ramírez didn’t instantly reply to a query about whether or not the president would return to Mexico Metropolis aboard a industrial airline flight.
The president stated that whereas he stays in isolation, Inside Secretary Adán Augusto López will fill in on the every day presidential morning information briefings.
That might present a lift for the inside secretary’s flagging marketing campaign to win the presidential nomination of López Obrador’s Morena get together for the 2024 elections. López, who will not be associated to the president, presently trails Mexico Metropolis Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum in most polls on the first race.
