The funeral was carried out next to a cemetery with the consent of local health authorities, with the coffin placed under a tent and a path that cars could follow to get a view.
This funeral was held for Sergio Bretado Rodriguez, a 51-year-old healthcare worker at a local clinic who transported patients with COVID-19 in ambulances until he became infected and succumbed to the disease.
Mexico’s health ministry has been severely criticized by national and international media for reporting fewer fatalities than those really taking place in the country.
According to civil groups the number of deaths could be 10 times higher than the figures reported by the AMLO administration.
