The Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection, Rosa Icela Rodríguez, announced the update in a telephone connection with the Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

“Unfortunately, the State Prosecutor's Office gives a total of victims at the moment of 39 deceased, 29 of them men and ten women. The probable cause is asphyxiation due to submersion, although investigations continue,” the official reported.

In turn, the Mexican Government indicated that 55 percent of electrical energy services have been restored while 220,000 homes are affected and 80 percent of hotels damaged.

Likewise, it emerged that 2,500 people have benefited from the two community kitchens implemented by the National Civil Protection System, meanwhile, a mobile kitchen was deployed with the capacity to help 4,800 people.

Likewise, the Administration proposed to deliver more than 10,000 pantries in the Arroyo Seco, Zapata, Sabana, Central de Abastos and Laguna de Tres Palos neighborhoods, while four water treatment plants are in service to supply drinking water.

For his part, López Obrador regretted that sectors of the opposition, which he described as “very vile,” have politicized the issue for electoral purposes. Furthermore, he assured that “they don't care about people's pain.”

“What they want is to harm us and what they would like is for there to be many deaths so that they can blame us and take advantage of it, make money, return to the Government, which is what they are looking for, it is already a campaign, return to the Government to continue stealing, to continue plundering Mexico,” he stated.
