Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he was doing well despite catching Covid-19 for a second time, suggesting Omicron was a less dangerous variant.
“I’m feeling pretty good,” Lopez Obrador, 68, said in a video message played during a news conference led by Interior Minister Adan Augusto Lopez in his absence.
“Let’s not be scared. Fortunately this is a variant that does not have the level of danger of the Delta variant,” Lopez Obrador added, speaking with a croaky voice.
“What do I have? Burning in the throat, hoarseness, a little body ache at first,” he said.
