  • So far the number of fatalities in Guerrero remains at 27 and four missing, reported the head of the federal Executive; However, he asked to wait until he had all the information.

“The number of people who lose their lives should not be so significant, it is still something quantitative, right? A person losing their life is unfortunate.

“I do believe that we were lucky, nature, the Creator, protected us, even with the fury of the hurricane. Apparently, we still have to wait to have all the information about the missing people, those who have already been confirmed dead; But everything indicates that, even though the loss of any person is regrettable, there were not so many in the face of such a strong, impactful phenomenon, a category 5 hurricane that does not enter the desert, entered through the bay, where 800, a million people live. . So, yes, there is a lot of material damage, but fortunately we are not registering many losses of human life,” he commented.

“We have to put Acapulco on its feet as soon as possible. That is the plan, to help the affected people and at the same time return to normality in terms of tourism in the beautiful port of Acapulco,” he said.

“They are going to meet today afternoon, at 5 p.m., they are going to invite members of the private sector to make a proposal to support the tourism sector of Acapulco. There is going to be a review of which tourism companies have insurance, we are going to talk to insurers so that they do not delay the procedures and act soon,” he noted.

He specified that a review will be carried out of which tourism companies have insurance and they will speak with the insurers so that they do not delay the procedures.

“And act soon. “Those who do not have insurance, we are going to find a way so that they can benefit from cheap loans from both commercial banks and development banks,” he emphasized.
