"The symptoms are mild, so for the moment, I will be isolated at the National Palace until my full recovery," AMLO said, assuring that he will continue to monitor public affairs from the government headquarters.
On Monday, "I will attend a call from Russian President Vladimir Putin because there is a possibility that his country will send us the Sputnik V vaccine," AMLO explained, assuring that he is confident in his health improvement.
Until his return, the Secretary of Government Olga Sanchez will give the morning conferences that AMLO usually performs every day from the National Palace.
