The team will contribute to an assessment of the health status of Guatemalan citizens affected by burns, and if appropriate, transport them to specialized hospitals in Mexico, informed the Ministry of Health through a statement.
“In addition, two mobile medical units and a logistics and supervision unit have been made available to the Guatemalan authorities to carry out primary health care and disease prevention actions in the affected area,” the agency added.
It is a coordinated action between the Ministry of the Interior, the National Coordination of Civil Protection, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ssa, which have maintained communication with the Government of Guatemala since June 3 to make available to them support and technical advice to face the emergency.
“Mexico reiterates its solidarity with the Guatemalan people and Government and remains attentive to the evolution of the grave situation that this brother country is going through and to any additional request for help from its authorities,” concludes the statement.
