The entrepreneur and owner of Grupo Salinas, Ricardo Salinas Pliego, reported that he contracted COVID-19.
In a brief message, Salinas Pliego said he will take care of himself and show the prescription for the drugs he will take to fight the virus.
«… to take care of themselves and not be afraid, as I always said… you have to give us all and we’re going to be fine,» he wrote.

For months, Ricardo Salinas Pliego is one of the characters who has questioned the federal government’s strategy to tackle the pandemic the most.
Last June he published a series of messages criticizing the call to stay home to avoid getting infected.
In these messages, the entrepreneur called COVID «damn virus» and noted that we have to learn to coexist with it, as it will not disappear and it is not known until when there will be a cure or vaccine.
Faced with the restrictions of epidemiological traffic lights, he said that millions of people wish to continue their activities, «freely choosing what is right for us and accepting the natural risk of living in an uncertain environment.»
Health officials were asked to give people freedom to decide what is best for them, rather than «imposing» prevention measures.
Salinas Pliego has maintained this position since the beginning of the pandemic, which it has also applied in Salinas group companies, by not allowing its employees to work from home.
