Mexico City announced Wednesday the plan with which it is preparing to return to economic and social activities at a time when the numbers of new infections by coronavirus continue to set record figures practically every day, the AFP agency reported.
As of Tuesday night, the capital’s government reported 15,283 positive cases with 1,452 deaths, 71 of them within 24 hours, although Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum has acknowledged that these figures could be higher.
In addition, 3,300 hospitalized are reported in the capital, with 1,119 in intensive care, which represents 76% of the occupation.
The “Gradual Plan towards the New Normality”, as the mayor Claudia Sheinbaum called it, mentions that the inhabitants of the capital must maintain social distancing measures until June 15, although from the 1st of the same month, will allow construction, mining, the manufacture of transport equipment and sale of bicycles, in addition to beer production, to be incorporated into economic activities.
The first three had already been authorized by the federal government to start working partially since last Monday.
Sheinbaum said that the inclusion of bicycle sales is because it wants to promote more use in the city as a measure to generate more health in the population.
