Asked about his health Tuesday morning, Interior Secretary Olga Sánchez Cordero said that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has continued working and that he is recovering well, several days after he confirmed he had tested positive for the coronavirus.

But she also noted that, even though he is the head of state, federal laws regarding the protection of personal information still apply to him, and that his health status is sensitive information.

“No, the president has not been vaccinated,” Sánchez said, in response to a question about whether he had passed up an earlier opportunity.

AMLO, as the president is widely known, will get his doses according to the rules and timeline laid out by the secretary of Health, according to Sánchez.
