The bad news does not stop against the Rodríguez family and it is that, a few days after the terrible loss due to the death of the producer Magda Rodríguez, since now both Andrea Escalona and her aunt, Andrea Rodríguez, have tested positive for COVID-19.
The one who confirmed the news was the producer Alejandro Gou, since Andrea Escalona is part of the Comic Quarantine show. This would be the second case of contagion within this show and for a change, the project that is also affected is the morning show “Hoy”, and Escalona is also part of the staff.
Another case that is also suspected of COVID-19 is that of the host Galilea Montijo, since although she has not confirmed it herself or the program through her social networks, she has been absent from the program for almost a week, she did not even attend in person to the tribute they made to Magda Rodríguez, although she was connected through a video call.

“Today” will continue to be in suspense because no producer has been given an extension of the contract, since in the case of Nino Canún, who will try to bring out and bring new content to convince that the project deserves to continue on the air He will only have two weeks while the executives decide which will be the best option to head the program. A few days before her death, Magda herself would have received the extension of her contract for one year with the intention of making radical changes in the schemes of the renowned morning program.
Later the name of her sister, Andrea Rodríguez, who would be the person in charge of replacing Magda, was called her production assistant and her right hand in various projects. And although it was only during the tribute they made to the former producer, it seems that he convinced the executives that he was the ideal option to head the program.
The one who announced the news that Andrea Rodríguez would be the one who would remain in command of the program was the host Andrea Legarreta, this after Magda's tribute. This is how the longest-lived driver of the morning put it :
Actually, what I understand is that Andreita Rodríguez, her sister, who also worked shoulder to shoulder with her and who also has the capacity; Well, what I understand is that she is going to close the cycle as expected “, because let's remember that a few days ago, Magda had been extended for a longer time, the contract to be the one who would produce the morning for one more year.

So far, Nino Canún Rojas has only the program “Cuéntamelo Ya!” under his supervision, to which he can add the most popular morning Televisa has. The tribute now turns on the red lights of the television since Andrea Escalona and Andrea Rodríguez were closely with the program's hosts and with members of the staff, so the risk of possible cases of contagion has increased within the San television station. Angel.
As for the comedy project of the Comic Quarantine, now they will have to face the loss of two of its main actors, since, in addition to the absence of Andrea Escalona, Ariel Miramontes “Albertano” has still not returned, who also tested positive for COVID-19 and that he would have been in close contact with Galilea Montijo. Miramontes attended the “Hoy” program this past October 31 to celebrate a special Halloween episode.
