"The logic from the Mexican government was to basically hold off until they could no longer and then impose quarantine measures, knowing full well that individuals in the informal economy wouldn't necessarily be able to abide by social distancing or staying home, in part because they needed to be out to be able to make a living," says Gladys McCormick, Jay and Debe Moskowitz Endowed Chair in Mexico-U.S. Relations. She was interviewed for the CBC News article "As COVID-19 deaths surpass 60,000, Mexico hits 'catastrophic scenario' officials warned about." 08/24/20
