They will close businesses and shopping centers in CDMX at 7 in the afternoon, limiting the hours to carry out these operations.
“Mexico City is on an orange traffic light with an alert, even when we are paying special attention,” said Sheinbaum.
The pandemic has claimed the lives of more than 100,000 people in Mexico, a figure much worse than expected.
Despite a clear increase in infections in Mexico City (CDMX), authorities insist that stay on orange light next week, as reported this Friday in conference of the press the head of Government, Claudia Sheinbaum. The region has remained in this stratum since the end of June.
“Mexico City is on an orange traffic light with alert, even when we are with special attentionWe are at the limit of the traffic light, ”he said.
The orange traffic light with an alert is the stage in which the population must avoid having meetings or parties and not go to places that operate “clandestinely”, as it could cause a rebound.
The pandemic has claimed the lives of more than 100,000 people in Mexico, a number much higher than the authorities initially estimated in its worst case scenario, and there are no signs that its devastation will end anytime soon. The confirmed cases amounted to one million 19 thousand 543, detailed on Thursday José Luis Alomía, general director of Epidemiology. Meanwhile, the suspected cases with the possibility of a result of the COVID-19 disease increased to 74,134.
In recent weeks, there has been an upturn in the number of hospitalizations due to COVID-19, therefore, the alert is reiterated, but a change in color is not announced in the epidemiological traffic light and therefore the measures continue to be those that have been handled during these weeks.
“We are at the limit of the orange traffic light,” he said at a press conference and added that among the measures that will be applied in this regard are:
They will close businesses and shopping centers at 7 in the afternoon, limiting the hours to carry out these operations. Starting Monday, the hours will be reduced to 7:00 p.m., so it will be the closing limit for non-essential businesses such as cinemas, theaters, bookstores, gyms, among others. In the case of restaurants, the operation will be allowed until 10:00 pm, “but until 7:00 pm the sale of alcohol will be allowed.” Prohibition will be extended in at least 8 delegations of the CDMX. They begin rapid tests in kiosks to detect cases and isolate them, so that they do not continue to spread the disease.
