President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Wednesday that his doctors had been concerned enough to administer a liter of rehydration fluids. He said in a videotaped chat from the National Palace in Mexico City_ where he lives and is isolating _ that doctors wanted to fly him back to the capital in a stretcher. López Obrador had been on a working tour of the Yucatan peninsula Sunday when he tested positive for the coronavirus, his third bout of COVID-19.
