“What there has been is a series of disqualifications particularly to the proposal that we’ve put on the table to apply quick tests to make an early detection in order to confirm and then to be able to avoid more infections. That is what Jalisco put it on the table and the only thing that we had as a response is a not that has no explanation,” said the governor.
