Billionaire Richard Branson invited Gil to take a flight beyond the blue planet, but truth be told (catchphrase sponsored by El Presidente and Morena), Gilga has important things to do among earthlings, why waste $ 250,000, price of the ticket to travel to infinity and beyond. Thanks, Branson, if this had been yesterday, Gamés would take it.
Now bad without good: Gil does not want to scare, but something ugly is going to happen here, he does not give credit and collection: in a single day, the Ministry of Health reported the highest number of infections by covid since February 10: 12,116 They will say the mass of the vaccination, but this one advances slowly. Without containment, epidemiologists say, Mexico will have 80,000 new infections in September. They call this the third wave. If Gilga thinks of Mexico City, he cannot believe it: everything is open and packed, vehicular traffic (so they say) worse than in the pre-ndemic. The elections are coming: open doors and windows, restaurants, theaters, cinemas, bars, clubs, gather your family, kiss your grandmother, shout in closed places where there are more than 20 people. The result is in the minutes of the Ministry of Health. Note that Gil always refers to official data, the 12 thousand infections are accompanied by 230 deaths. They will say that they are few, because to Gamés they seem very many. The total figure: 235 thousand 507 deaths. It is known, there is specialists in statistics and epidemiology who affirm that in Mexico 600 thousand people have died. We want Gatell. Gatell, Gatell.
The inverecundo Undersecretary of Health affirms that the third wave “passes with a 75% reduction in hospitalizations and deaths as a result of vaccines.” Hugo López-Gatell supposes that we should congratulate him on the amount of lies and the criminal handling of the pandemic. It really is. In the City and State of Mexico, the highest number of active cases has been detected, what Gil calls the devil’s cauldron. We’re doing pretty well.
It turns out that in our country there are four variants of the covid considered “very serious” by the World Health Organization. Alpha (UK), delta (India), gamma (Brazil) and epsilon (California) have been detected. All of these variants are more transmissible and offer some greater resistance to vaccines. No more is known as scientists are still studying these variants of the original virus. Very nice, Gilga muses, do not stop opening everything so that the economy recovers its losses.
And lost in his musings, Gamés thought of the young people who have been infected after making happy graduation trips to Mazatlán and Cancun. The Ministry of Health reported that 128 young people out of a group of 500 who traveled to Cancun to celebrate their graduation tested positive, almost 50% of the 250 young people who have been tested. Don’t take Gamés the wrong way, but young people are stupid, mothers and fathers are idiotic, and teachers and school administrators are stupid. With the sadness.
Gilga reports that he has completed three days with his nights without referring to the mornings. And it doesn’t feel bad, on the contrary, it even feels like you’ve lost a little weight. Gil invites his colleagues to do the same: don’t walk by, leave him behind. The President has the right to speak without pause but slowly and Gamés has the right not to listen to him and everyone in holy peace, mju.
Gilga will persist in skipping the morning. For example, if you are tempted, resort to the abracadabra in a book and, to be more precise, the novel by Juan Gabriel Vásquez: Turn your eyes back (Alfaguara, 2021); that you don’t want to read, so put Somos, a devastating series of violence in Mexico, six chapters to make the most serene tremble; You don’t want to watch TV, so go to sleep and dream like you’re a Hollywood producer and stop fucking around.
It’s all very weird, damn it. As Alberto Moravia would say: “Common sense: something like contagious health”.
Gil s’en goes
