The truth is, this Friday, January 15, the authorities will announce what is next for Jalisco, where their businessmen have expressed agreement with a possible partial closure, as already occurred during the last days of October, as well as from December 25 to January 10. None of the previous closures have done anything to slow the spread of the virus because of the lack of enforcement and poorly target and limited closures.
“We support the actions that the state government generates in terms of closing activities, because what we are going to see is going to be inhumane,” said Rubén Masayi González Uyeda, coordinator of the Council of Industrial Chambers of Jalisco (CCIJ); while Xavier Orendáin De Obeso, president of the Guadalajara Chamber of Commerce assured that “if another mechanism of slowing down infections were to be proposed in the Reactivation Board and in the Health Board and we can know that through this decision they will be able to prevent more infections and more loss of life, of course, the Chamber of Commerce will support it ”.
Coparmex Jalisco through a statement called for “co-responsibility in citizens to avoid new closures that would affect companies and their collaborators.”
