Assault on doctors leads to homicide in Guerrero

Health workers accuse that they have been threatened by relatives of patients with Covid-19 Chilpancingo.— The murder of the director of the basic hospital of Huamuxtitlán in the Mountain, Mélida Honorato Gabriel, could have been part of the attacks suffered by medical personnel by relatives of Covid-19 patients, said the secretary general of Section 36 of the National Union of Health Workers (SNTS), Beatriz Vélez Núñez.

The union leader reported that relatives of patients with coronavirus have arrived in Guerrero hospitals, threatening staff if they do not save their patient. Vélez Núñez asked President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and Governor Héctor Astudillo Flores to clarify his speech on the obligation of doctors in this pandemic: the team. “The case of Dr. [Mélida Honorato] comes precisely because of the situation that is being experienced,” he added. He also sued the rulers and deputies to legislate to sanction those who attack medical personnel. On Friday afternoon, on the Tlapa-Puebla federal highway, two armed men who were aboard a van crossed the car that the hospital director was driving, got out and shot him directly. The director’s sister came out unscathed.

Given this situation, since Saturday workers at the Huamuxtitlán hospital have stopped working to demand justice for the crime and demand security. In a statement they reported that doctors, nurses and administrative staff suspended the service indefinitely and will only attend emergencies, until the authorities guarantee their safety. A month ago, the National Guard took control of the security of Huamuxtitlán. It came after the disappearance and murders of two young people, a crime that state police officers allegedly committed. State elements arrived in Huamuxtitlán after the arrest of the director of the Municipal Police, José Armando Ayala, accused of the disappearance and murder of a young man from the Santa Cruz community, which occurred on May 24. It should be noted that since the former police chief was arrested, the mayor Elpidio Nava Rodríguez has not appeared at the town hall.
