The world is on my lips on developments in Mexico. Because the country has experienced two catastrophes in quick succession.

After heavy rains in the last few hours, the river near the town of Tula in Hidalgo state was inundated.

The resulting flood flooded the area’s public hospital. As a result of the flooding, 17 patients died, most of them suffering from Kovid-19.

Hidalgo Governor Omar Fayad told local media that 15 or 16 of the 17 deaths were due to COVID-19.

The country was rocked by a magnitude 7.4 earthquake before it could weather the shock of this event.

The National Seismological Service announced that the 6.9 magnitude earthquake, whose epicenter was 14 kilometers southeast of the city of Acapulco in the state of Guerrero in the south of the country, was recorded at a depth of 50 kilometers from the ground.

However, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported that the quake was 7.4 magnitude and its epicenter was the town of Pueblo Madero in the state of Guerero.

More than 40 patients at the public hospital in the city of Tula, in the state of Hidalgo, were evacuated Tuesday by rescuers, and nearly 2,000 houses were damaged by the floods during an initial assessment, the Mexican government said in a statement.
