- Mexico City currently has 60% hospital occupancy and there are 4,459 confirmed cases.
Andrés Manuel López Obrador, President of Mexico, urged residents of the country’s capital to reduce their trips and not have Christmas holidays. This request was made in the middle of a recovery from COVID-19 cases at the company.
“If we don’t have anything really important to do, we don’t take to the streets,” said the president in his morning conference.
At the conference, the president read a decalogue with proposals to the citizens, with the aim of allowing them to regulate their activities “freely and voluntarily”. He also made it clear that it is not a ban.
López Obrador said his administration would not apply mandatory restrictive measures to allow people to stay at home. “Everyone takes care of themselves and decides what to do (…). It is better to play it safe,” he said.
