Private Hospital

No offence intended to yourself or Midalake(?) but I'm not looking for political statements, I'm looking for actual information regarding where to get best treatment in Zihua should I catch Covid while there.

I think you should read my first post. If remdesivir is not available in ZIH, and it is not . What kind of care and treatment do you think you could even get?
My guess is you already know the answer.


Dave, you really shouldn’t make claims based on your own bias. Unless you’ve consulted with the hospital administrator, you can’t don’t know what’s available and what isn’t. Comments based on bias aren’t helpful.

Maybe you can help then and have the hospital administrator respond. Until then I will stick to the facts.
BTW, I have been in the General Hosp., there is no way in hell I am ever going there.

News that Hospital Especialidades and other private clinics....the very health care providers that most NOB tourists would automatically assume they would go to, if confronted with the virus.....are not accepting COVID patients, is certainly a "wake-up call".
I seem to recall a quote a couple of years ago, by an influential local who shall be un-named, saying that Zihua's public hospital is where you go if you want to die quickest. Perhaps he was just joking.

Thank you all for the expected somewhat snobbish NOB POV. We have what we have, and those of us who depend on it make do with what we have. You are all of course very welcome to vacation somewhere else where they have better hospitals. I'm not here to sell you a damn thing. Sorry that what's good enough for us isn't good enough for you, but that's your choice. I hear Miami has excellent hospitals. This is definitely not a place to be sick or if you think you'll need modern health care. I can only wonder what you thought you were doing visiting such a backwards place like Zihuatanejo with such primitive unacceptable health care. Hope you enjoyed your visits.

Hey son, it was you, not me, who offered that opinion of the quality of healthcare at Zihua's public hospital. You're shooting the wrong messenger. Tally Ho's revelation of Especialidades and other private clinics not accepting COVID cases is of interest to prospective visitors, whether you think it should be....or not.

You must've missed the sarcasm.

Since I began reporting on the local Covid-19 situation, I thought I had mentioned more than once that the government designated the General Hospital as the official medical facility for suspected Covid-19 patients. If I didn't then my bad. I can't repeat everything every single day, and I can't reply to unasked questions. The daily reports already eat up quite a bit of my time, especially when some of my sources don't post their data until late. But I do urge folks to go back and read my comments since this matter began to get a handle on where we are today. I think Zihuatanejo is doing very well, and that it can do even better. By no means do I think things are so dire here that our local Covid-19 situation should be a negative for folks considering a vacation. I wouldn't hesitate to tell any family member or friend to come here.
