“I regret to inform you that I am infected with COVID-19,” the 67-year-old Mexican leader, perhaps better known by his initials AMLO, said in a tweet. Despite the diagnosis, however, he remains optimistic and will proceed working from his residence.
On Monday, AMLO has a scheduled phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin – coincidentally to discuss potential supplies of Sputnik V vaccine, in addition to talking about “friendly” bilateral relations in general.
Gripped by the second wave of the pandemic, Mexico reported yet another 530 Covid-related fatalities on Sunday, bringing the official total number of deaths to 149,614 – although the real number could be even higher, according to the Health Ministry.
