The Mexican Republic is close to 680 thousand infections by coronavirus COVID-19, a virus that has already claimed the lives of more than 70 thousand people in our country.
Mexico is fully adapting to the so-called new normal. In most of the states of the Republic the number of assets estimated by COVID-19 is decreasing, but still with a slow de-escalation. Despite this, due to the nature of the season and the behavior of the infection, it is expected that there will be a regrowth in October. The official recommendations are very similar to those offered since the beginning of the pandemic in our country, such as staying at home for as long as possible, a healthy distance, hand washing and disinfection of areas or objects of common use, all of this to avoid possible regrowth.
