Mexico’s President has been widely criticised after sharing a clip on social media of him kissing a young girl in public during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The clip was shared on social media by the Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador after a visit in the city of Ometepec in the state of Guerrero in southern Mexico.

Obrador shared the clip on Twitter alongside the message: “At the exit of the hotel in Ometepe, I greeted and listened to people’s requests. Let’s go to Xochistlahuaca.”

At one point he is seen taking a little girl in his arms, kissing and playfully biting her even though the girl appears uncomfortable.

Twitter user ‘kalinking’ wrote: “Kids are not to be eaten.”

Netizen ‘tumbaburross’ said: “President, stop greeting people with kisses and hugs. The most vulnerable age to coronavirus is your own.”

Reports said the number of people infected by COVID-19 in Mexico has increased to 53 with seven of them hospitalised.

The Mexican Sub-Secretary of Health, Hugo Lopez-Gatel, has said that there have not been any deaths from COVID-19 in the country while the national government has urged the people to maintain a healthy distance in their social interactions.
