The Henry Reeve Brigade will be deployed in the capital district which has become one of the epicenters of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) announced the upcoming arrival of the second group of Cuban doctors made up of 200 professionals who will support the fight against the pandemic in the country.
The group will be assisted by the Navy and the Armed forces given the alarming health situation in the country, which has recorded a caseload of over 1.4 million cases and over 131,031 related fatalities as of Friday morning.
Referring to the lack of sufficient Mexican doctors to respond to the emergency, AMLO condemned the absence of medical specialists despite hospitals have been provided with modern equipment.
Noting that the new health brigade will be deployed in the capital, he also announced that his administration will work to increase doctors' wages and scholarships.
