The Mexican Ministry of Health has temporarily suspended the traffic light system, which marks the resumption of activities due to “inconsistencies” in the state-provided coronavirus data.

Under-Secretary of State for Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell, has confirmed that COVID-19’s national traffic light will not be updated due to data issues. “We find that the information transmitted to evaluate the traffic light is not consistent across all states,” he said.

The representative has indicated that he will assess the irregularities that have occurred, and stresses that this fact does not occur in all states, but that he cannot present the information “with several gray holes”, reports the newspaper “El Sol de México” ‘ .
