Mexicans revive fears of third wave of coronavirus despite vaccination.

EFE / Mexico City.- The third wave of the delta virus that has hit Mexico is keeping the population on tenterhooks, who revive the fear of infections, the saturation of some hospitals and the death of loved ones while the government works against watch to speed up vaccination.

That is why in recent weeks, they have made an effort to accelerate the inoculation and until today they claim to have vaccinated, at least with one dose, 48 million of the 126 million people who live in the country.

Mexico City has begun to see the effects of this new wave of infections, because although vaccination began last week in people over 18 years of age, this hasn’t had much effect in preventing hospitals from filling up.

Beatriz Silvano has her 48-year-old mother hospitalized since July 29 at the Hospital de los Venados in Mexico City.

Although her mother is already vaccinated with a first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine, she couldn’t prevent the virus from forcing her to enter this hospital.

Mexico continues to be one of the countries hardest hit by the coronavirus, and although herd immunity hasn’t been achieved, the vaccine gives hope although it doesn’t take away fear.

Meanwhile, the Mexican authorities put their faith in vaccination and this Tuesday they announced that as of August 15 and until mid-September they would be applying second doses on the northern border, in an effort to soon reactivate trade with their main partner, the United States.
