During Mexican President Andres Manuel López Obrador's morning conference, Foreign Affairs Secretary Marcelo Ebrard Casaubon responded to questions about current restrictions on border crossings between Mexico and the United States.
Ebrard commented that every week the information provided by the Department Ministry of Health is reviewed since every month there is a dialogue with authorities of the American country.
However, despite observing a resurgence of COVID-19 in the United States, which are not in the border cities, according to Ebrard, "the restriction has not been changed with different modalities to activities that are not considered essential. We do not estimate that in the short term this disposition will be modified, but until this date we are not going to modify what is already established," commented the Chancellor this Thursday.
In addition, when asked if Mexico would be stricter with foreigners crossing into the country, the Secretary said that "Mexico is not going to opt for an imperative closure," since by not allowing their entry there would be many consequences because the activities on the border would be paralyzed, "and probably the damage we would do, imagine how many months we have been, could be enormous. We are not anticipating a total closure of activities," added Casaubon.
For the time being, the Mexican traffic light chart has also been adopted in the United States, with the same colors and similar meanings, which allows to simplify the dialogue between both countries, according to Marcelo Ebrard.
