This Wednesday, the Government of Mexico City reported that no Dry Law has been enacted in any town hall due to the health emergency generated by COVID-19.
Through its Twitter account, the government asked convenience stores “not to close or condition the sale of alcoholic beverages.” It also asked people not to make panic purchases.
In the same way, the government commented that if any mayor of Mexico City implements this measure, it will be communicated in a timely manner.
These statements came after the hashtag #LeySeca became a national trend on Twitter , derived from announcements made by different governors in the framework of the cessation of non-essential activities. According to the governor of Nuevo León, Jaime Rodríguez alias “El Bronco” , the governors agreed to cease the distribution of beer .
In this context, the National Alliance of Small Merchants (ANPEC) asks the Federal Government to have effective communication and agree with the different production chains in the face of the health emergency to guarantee production, supply and supply in the national market.
“ANPEC pronounces itself against any prohibition because it generates speculation, affects the battered family economy and, in this particular case, will cause excessive consumption, higher levels of depression and eventually domestic violence,” it said in a statement from the institution.
