Francisco Cervantes reported that they are working at forced marches with the Ministry of the Economy and the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) to define the health protocols to work.

“We are also looking for low-cost rapid (Covid-19 screening) tests that can be monitored and run smoothly. The last thing we want is personnel deaths,” Cervantes said. For this reason, he added that the northern states have registered a high number of infections, and it is seek to work with the least affected.
