During the morning press conference on Monday, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that the plan to reopen after the coronavirus crisis in Mexico would be announced next Wednesday or Thursday. The president expressed that the issues of return will be included both territorially and in the economic, tourist and educational sectors, among others.
“We are going to present this Wednesday or Thursday the plan for how the opening will take place, how we will return to normality, both territorially and sectorally, that is, regions that can be opened, sectors such as education, sectors that have it do with production, construction, companies related to the treaty to produce and exports, including a glimpse of what will be the opening to tourism,” he said.
However, if problems arise after the reactivation, the president does not rule out backing down. “That is why we are going to present a reopening plan, I insist, little by little, taking care of ourselves, with sanitary measures, moving forward; and if we have problems, we backtrack, we rectify, but we already have the conditions to do that, because we already have more doctors.”
