The head of government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, announced on Sunday that the capital will reopen some of its industries from Monday, for example companies in the historic center, as hospital occupancy has dropped from 65 to 60 percent.
“We will open gradually and under strict hygiene measures,” the head of government announced in a video published on her social networks, which insisted that “the pandemic should continue.”
Mexico City, along with the State of Mexico, has been one of the hardest hit by the COVID 19 pandemic since the health crisis began four months ago. They accumulate more than 80,500 accumulated cases between the two units.
For this reason, Mexico City will take on the orange color of the epidemiological traffic light, which will benefit from some relaxation of containment measures when some companies reopen, although capacity will be limited to 30 percent.
