In another call, but to the Head of Government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, the president also gives instructions to continue making the respective reviews.
“They are already carrying it out and fortunately, the report is good because there is no loss of human life (in CDMX), there must be only material damage and in the case of the city I do not think that many,” says López Obrador.
