The position of the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), regarding the coronavirus pandemic had been strongly criticized; above all, last weekend when, despite the growth of infections in this nation, the president advised the population to continue with their usual routine while in other states they had already implemented contingency plans. However, AMLO had to reverse its position and unveiled the measures that the Aztec nation that is already in phase two because of COVID-19 will adopt.
- Carrier containment will continue.
- Classes in the educational system were canceled from March 23 to April 19.
- Events and concentrations of more than 100 people are temporarily suspended.
- Work activities that only involve the mobilization of people from their homes to their homes and back in all sectors of society are temporarily suspended. However, many companies offering services will continue to operate.
"It has been requested that all organizations, agencies and entities implement their business continuity plans to guarantee the operation and achievement of their fundamental function and also the rights of both male and female workers and individuals users of their services”, explained Hugo López Gatell, undersecretary of Health at the morning conference of the Mexican president.
Basic preventive measures will also be intensified. People with symptoms are asked to stay home. And a distance of 1.5 meters is maintained between each person.
"We are far from needing measures that violate public life or that affect individual guarantees," he concluded.
Provisional hospitals will be enabled and those of the health sector will be used, as well as those of the Navy and the Army.
According to Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the elderly will be asked to be at home with pay; as well as groups more vulnerable to being affected by the coronavirus.
“With this information, let us act prudently, without despair, without becoming apathetic; with the firm conviction that we have many strengths,”said López Obrador. "The people of Mexico are made to resist adversity and to get ahead."
