New York —
MEXICO – Hugo López-Gatell, Undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion reported that based on scientific conjecture, the coronavirus pandemic could last two to three years in the world, so he asked Mexicans to learn to live with this situation.
“It cannot be identified, but it is pointed out that it could take two or three years in the entire process that is synchronously in the world,” he said.
“How long in total is this going to last?” It cannot be specified, but some scientific conjectures suggest that this could last several years, possibly two or three years, during the entire process in which it is synchronously, in time lag, presenting the epidemic in the world ”, expressed López-Gatell during the press conference of President AndrÃ © s Manuel LÃ³pez Obrador, held from the National Palace.
He reiterated that it is important to learn to live in this situation since the virus cannot be completely eliminated, if the risks of getting it can be reduced.
“Given that reality, the new normality that implies is living in a situation where we cannot completely eliminate a risk, we cannot eliminate it from the planet, but we can integrate ourselves into living in society in the activities that are essential for life human in all countries doing it in a way that allows us to decrease those risks and in the decrease of those risks there are changes in practices, practices of daily life, which allow us to decrease the probability of being infected, “he said the undersecretary of Health.
He stressed the importance of continuing with sanitary measures, such as keep healthy distance in public places and frequent hand washing.
He asked to avoid talking face-to-face with another person not less than two meters (about 78 inches) away.
â € œWe cannot be so close because the way of transmission of this virus, because it is through the drops and small drops and respiratory sprays, that we all produce when speaking, shouting, singing, coughing, Sneezing, that’s a very important step, â € he explained.
“And the second is continuous handwashing, washing our hands perfectly with soap and water; if soap and water are not available, you can use alcohol gel or 70% strength solution to disinfect your hands and avoid contagion through your hands by touching your eyes, nose or mouth and carrying the virus to our body, â € said López-Gatell.
“We do not feel panic despite external pressure because world governments, including Mexico, have participated in directing efforts at society or arranging measures for the closure of activities,” he said.
Rebound of cases in October to March
Another issue highlighted by López-Gatell, is a rebound in the cases of COVID-19 from October and extending until March 2021, adding to the season of influenza.
He also explained that in all countries of the world there is a possibility that the virus could spread again.
“There is a possibility, it is not something that is completely true, but there is a suspicion that it could be when autumn and winter arrive, in October, along with influenza,” he said.
“During the influenza season, from October to March, there is this suspicion that Covid could rebound,” he added.

Supreme Court rules electors cannot go rogue
In a unanimous decision the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled electors must cast their Electoral College vote in accordance with their state’s law, giving support to the popular vote winner movement, and handing a defeat to “rogue” electors, as NBC News reports.
The court ruled that electors are not “free-agents,” as MSNBC’s Pete Williams described, and must cast their votes as pledged. States, the court ruled, can penalize so-called “faithless-electors.” The can also remove electors who refuse, the court ruled, Politico adds.
Axios notes the “2016 presidential election saw 10 electors vote for someone other than their state’s chosen candidate — highlighting how faithless electors could have the potential to swing an election.”
Justice Elena Kagan wrote the majority.
