During López’s participation, López stated that During the most intense phase of the health crisis, 1,758 beds were converted in what was called Operation Minerva.
The official recognized that Jalisco represents about 10% of the productivity of the IMSS at the national level, granting on a typical day 38 thousand 394 consultations and 244 surgical interventions.
On the other hand, the state head of the Institute stressed that in the days of continuity of services on weekends during 2021, six million 273 thousand 595 Family Medicine consultations and 987 thousand 909 specialty consultations were granted, in addition, 77 thousand 599 surgical interventions.
