The assessment of the coronavirus epidemic in Mexico has crossed the threshold of 10,000 dead as the country begins to resume its eco-friendly activity



Mexico is the second country in Latin America most heavily affected by the virus behind Brazil. The coronavirus has killed 10,167 people since the start of the epidemic and 93,435 cases have been confirmed, authorities said.

According to Hugo Lopez-Gatell, Undersecretary for Health and responsible for the strategy against the virus, the country expects a much heavier toll in the coming weeks. The death toll could reach 30,000.

At the same time, the country is reviving its economic activity.

"Today resume production activities related to the automotive industry, mines and the construction industry," said Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, President of Mexico.

And to add: "We must go towards the new normal because it is necessary for the national economy, the well-being of our people, we must gradually normalize the productive, economic, social and cultural activities. "

The tourism sector, which accounts for 8.7% of the country's GDP, should also quickly recover. The seaside town of Cancun should benefit from a recovery plan from next week. It remains to be seen whether tourists will be there in this country which, for the moment, is with Brazil, the epicenter of the epidemic?
