Economic reopening in Mexico will be based on a weekly traffic light for each state

The Undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell, indicated that the country will enter a “new normal”, that is, it will not return to the conditions prior to the epidemic. The General Health Council reported on Tuesday that it approved the implementation of a weekly traffic light to determine the activities that can be carried out in each state from June 1. This measure is part of four agreements approved for the progressive lifting of containment measures against the new coronavirus pandemic. “Starting June 1, 2020, @SSalud_mx will define a weekly traffic light for each federal entity. Each color will allow certain economic, educational and social activities with specific levels of intensity,” he wrote through his Twitter account. During the conference on the situation of the new coronavirus in Mexico, the Undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell said that on Wednesday they will present the details on the traffic lights that will be implemented. “Today the Council met to review the pre-proposal of the plan of unconfinement or restoration where we identified a fundamental concept that is ‘the new normal’, that is to say, we are not going to return to the pre-epidemic conditions, we are going to return at the end of the Healthy Distance Day on May 30, to particular conditions where we must continue with strict prevention measures, “he said. The General Health Council at its third meeting of the permanent session, approved 4 agreements for the progressive lifting of containment measures against COVID-19. López-Gatell explained that in those areas, states or metropolises where there is a high transmission process or the beginning of the transmission, the containment measures will not be able to relax and “will have to be applied in local terms.” The official reiterated that this is not a complete liberation and a return to normality, “in an extremely careful way, we have to make a return to a certain normality in order to reactivate economic social life and remove the very important pressure on local economies, day-to-day people and small businesses. ” The Ministry of Health previously reported that 3,926 people have died from the new SARS-COV-2 coronavirus in Mexico. “The,” confirmed cases amounted to 38 thousand 324, of which eight thousand 817 are active -that is, they presented symptoms of the virus in the last 14 days-, reported José Luis Alomía, General Director of Epidemiology. The Government of Mexico announced on April 16 that the National Sana Distancia Day would be extended until May 30, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. “The control actions that will be proposed for its formalization in the General Health Council are: The National Sana Distancia Day will remain in force until May 30,” said Hugo López-Gatell, Undersecretary of Health at the time.
