I think the whole world is wondering "how long will this be". It's a question we all ask ourselves. A two week lockdown turned into 6 weeks real quick here in Canada. Many are saying easily another 3 months until we can begin to lift some restrictions (and that's not even a sure thing). Crazy times.
lisc3d
Although at the moment, we are still allowed to enjoy city parks, as long as we practice social distancing (minimum 2m distance and no gatherings). I don't see the harm in allowing beach access as long as everyone can respect that (assuming you're in a quieter town).
btekafaksbriave3d
I wouldn’t wanna go surfing during this time
xrnkyfqewiwlbtp3d
You’d be the only target out there for sharks
kstdwcmkntebotr3d
Hard pass
pmtrnlaczupdwzzrvy3d
It is!!!! 💔
yjjcyvoi3d
Closing outdoor areas seems like a non-scientific way of showing off government action. Letting people be outside in open air is just good for them. As long as they close down beach bars and restaurants anyway, there’s no extra risk in allowing a family to walk or sit on a beach.
hpqavcdu3d
Like people all over the world still are allowed to walk in the mountains etc.
gcttdduo3d
Except some weird places where police are harassing or shooting rubber bullets at everyone who are outside, because they haven’t understood how the virus works.
kdpfwwas3d
They have closed down leisure ports… so people can’t use their own boats to fish in order to survive while they have lost other sources of income. Totally not rational. They close down chlorinated swimming pools in condominios for what… ? A virus couldn’t live in that water anyway and how big is the chance to catch a virus outdoors in the wind? Probability like≈ winning the Euro Million lottery.
gqduldlyt3d
Boy it’s a pretty day today.
azkijkrg3d
Interesting how media reports from Sweden, which like Mexico has a far left government, as an “interesting experiment”, while they view Mexico as just “crazy”. Sweden still has restaurants and bars open until this day, no precautions at all. Mexico at least does something…
kifoshrwkcwuqoe3d
Because it fits people’s narratives
xqkeuistpzwhljg2d
Grocery store in my neighborhood is now limiting the number of people in.
vsyyiwdzrsqugex2d
Definitely looked like panic mode has set in with everyone here. Not sure what set it off
dufoqzklv2d
You’re in pdc?
zcegxnqym2d
You’re well stocked? You have water, masks?
gvrkiibym2d
(Cash?)
qhoclazmd2d
The hundred dollar bill I used as “encouragement” when getting out of Mexico was the best money I’ve spent in a few years since i bribed myself out of police custody
putjdejfknjbp2d
Different stores are doing different things. Before I moved, a large popular Farmacia Guadalajara was doing that in my neighborhood. This was two weeks ago

It was just causing people to bunch up outside
fdwclqtxc2d
mmrlfmlidwyfol knows the police chief and will be fine.
qvpmfayky2d
(But seriously I hope you’re ok)
meznpoypy2d
First person I personally know (knew) has died of it.
umuujlsmqvydpym2d
Oh damn that's rough
jrostqmzdhwkcdr2d
I'm in CDMX, definitely well stocked for the time-being.
kuxifahfs2d
Statistically everyone will be in the same boat in 4 weeks. I’m just early
doxfhrlln2d
Please don’t blow this off thinking you’re invincible (which my brother in Ireland is currently doing... sigh)
ivaovctmutn2d
so in PDC everyone is sure things will blow over in a few weeks
irjrdzclkrp2d
so nothing is getting too stringent
ednkoksemppgnej2d
Nah, booked an Airbnb in the mountains for at least a month to further isolate ourselves
mouyvxfjbzu2d
which is......... good for me because I can go to the store when I need to
mdrozirtojx2d
and don't need to bribe anyone for anything
gsgngorjkde2d
but not great for people who will get sick
wtewjyfjiogjugj2d
Yeah agreed
mpdzeshaierxewb2d
Seems like obesity is a huge factor re COVID-19 (unsure if it's because of obesity itself or because it's usually associated with another condition), but that's gonna be hard for Mexico to handle
rxxkznanjiq2d
oh hey that reminds me I did a grocery run today and I saw out of the corner of my eye something in like 50 other countries would be fresh squeezed orange juice but in mexico it's a plastic cup of flan -_-
eyvpumawm2d
Anyone with metabolic syndrome is fucked
nttgdwaea2d
Which is apparently what we call fat or hypertensive anymore
rgcndpjsh2d
Flan is a medication in Mexico, right?
gxyeyizcz2d
Like whiskey is in Ireland
biedxfink2d
Cures what ails ya
uvtvcbkbx2d
Also more men
bzytbqtmu2d
Which is like... a surprisingly common trope in stories I read. A significant depopulation of men.
lgqztiywxtfrhsa2d
Huh, COVID-19 is worse for men?
wqjusqtaf2d
Yep. Much worse
ialbtkmok2d
70/30 split in terms of mortality in some studies
vesgecmtrcl2d
Superama?
eohoovlvthdordf2d
oh what, that's significant
dwbhyawsbwmpvec2d
Have they figured out if it's causation vs correlation?
dgcbcvslgws2d
😮
zjyjbixgkdigtic2d
Sip. Superama in Condesa. Unsure if all Superamas are doing this, or if it's by location.
qlzhppmdjkd2d
Interesting, well that seems like a good precaution. We went there yesterday and stocked up enough for a couple weeks 🙏
vxqsrcaxszuqhqc2d
Huh, some articles say it's because men have higher rates of underlying preexisting conditions. Wouldn't surprise me given that I know a lot of men who refuse to go to the doctors.
phlnwtscqrt2d
I was going to say....... is this related to how dudes do more reckless things?
jxsrge2d
“Emerging evidence suggests that more men than women are dying, potentially due to sex-based immunological or gendered differences, such as patterns and prevalence of smoking. However, current sex-disaggregated data are incomplete, cautioning against early assumptions.” www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30526-2/fulltext|https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30526-2/fulltext
upnfdnvhwpyvvn1d
Yup, that's good. I'm in Lima, Peru and I had to wait 40 mins to enter a supermarket. Not allowing a lot of people at the same time makes social distancing easier.
akydikmmqy19h
pysbyrhyqst just arrived in 🌯 Mexico City, #mexico
zqabubkryuuplwq11h
Banning the sales of alcohol is nuts
qnbvakbaobh11h
The gringos in Baja are freaking the fuck out. Granted, there are a lot of alcoholics, so it will be hard on them
vklqeqvd11h
I mean, is domestic violence particularly common in mexico?
kafxxnfn11h
using it as an excuse to banish alcohol sales seems a bit weird
yzynrruvniovboa11h
Hmmm. Unsure. I do know there's a femicide issue in Juarez (and maybe some other places) but I'm unsure if that translates to there being a domestic violence issue. I haven't heard of that being an issue from talking with the locals 🤷
otdnosnopt10h
it’s hard for me to determine - a few weeks ago during women’s day there were country-wide protests against femicide
eocgdaetkn10h
but man to woman violence/murder is still a drop in the ocean when you compare it to man to man violence/murder
zazmymuqdp10h
not saying it doesn’t exist, it’s just, is violence in mexico an issue unique to women?
ydgnthwfhup10h
femicide isn't violence against people who happen to be women, femicide is violence specifically targetted at people who are women, for reasons pertaining to sexism/machismo/etc
hjqvnpbjoofem7h
Women in Mexico are tired of being lower class culturally, and while femicide isn't visible in the social circles we would likely hang out in, it's a concern for women who don't have as much opportunity
bbdonscgnimgl7h
Mexicans, especially younger ones, very much want to change the way things are done currently. Everyone is tired of the lack of justice, services, and the cultural norms that keep groups of people oppressed
wksuvdeohw7h
domestic violence is up everywhere because of the lockdowns
acuwnmvcgl7h
I bet macho culture in poor places here makes men do stupid shit which get them killed. It's just bad overall.
mibqyfcsgo7h
Yep the government is not doing shit.
niowmzfkchfjayj7h
It's really sad
bvkcbpjgqaqekiu7h
There was a pretty intense protest last summer (I think?) where a landmark got vandalized along with the major transfer station nearby, and people were more pissed about that than of the issue itself.
ktgucrddmdidicx7h
That being said, everyone knows that the boss of the house is the madre 🤷
rsnrbeprenfgpqf7h
Which is why I'm unsure if there's a significant domestic abuse situation here despite there being a femicide issue, if that makes sense?
fwvqclfalievjez7h
(Obviously acknowledging that domestic abuse isn't just man on woman)
puyidygloe7h
Well the article says something 95%+ cases are againsts women here, compared to more against men in developed countries.
gejirllnikggcfu7h
Wtf
kdbnhvjzqk7h
I don't have specific examples here, but I know of a family in Argentina where now with all the lockdown the husband is drunk all the time and shouting/fighting (he was alcoholic before, but not to this level and not 24/7 in house)
awvaoprrab7h
It's quite easy to imagine this happening elsewhere.
tnwypkouoi7h
Smaller problems under lockdown can grow into big problems. People are not used to be together 24/7, even married couples.
eirtwbulwt7h
Add that together with the shitfest that's happening here with these kind of issues and it's a huge problem. Alcohol is definitely a catalyst, but baning it could lead to other problems. It's not a simple decision, but I think I'm slightly in favor of banning it here in Mexico due to the special social circumstances.

In my own country they made alcohol deliveries legal so that small-med breweries don't go out of business (they're mostly served at bars). And they know that people will not stay at home and go get it either legally or illegally anyway.
rgkhhszjpdphqlu7h
Oh absolutely, I'm not in disbelief that these issues arise during this kind of situation
napljdmykghclxf6h
Was mostly surprised at the domestic violence stat in Mexico
lpwxkzmill5h
I’m still not sure. It just seems to be a symptom of a violent country in general. Unless someone can point out examples of countries where violence against women ISN’T accompanied by equally-high levels of violence in general. Of course I’m sure Mexico has it’s share of problems relating to gender equality and machismo, like most countries in Latin America.
vkyrkly5h
anyone else 100% not surprised that a dude is leaning into the argument that acts of intentional violence against women due to them being women is not a real problem?
toxwbdthh5h
they’re just women, they can be replaced. Don’t worry about it.
msqxtqzrg5h
I think the _real_ question is why the mexico channel is attracting so many odd opinions.
kmmdmqumgu4h
Did an ATM run after 3 weeks inside the house
isuvcjwzqh4h
My body is not used to walking outside anymore 😄
afqdeqybwjslqdc4h
Odd opinion Tortas are overrated unless filled with chilaquiles
majfdli3h
gasp
chiucfj3h
torta with chorizo plus egg or quesillo ❤️
qhpcmow3h
eh, still maybe a little "overrated" since some people hype them a ton, but they're a super fast and delicious lunch for like $1.25 lol
hisftey3h
the tortas al fuego stand has some pretty tasty options too, can get pastor or pollo adobado etc
wxwyigfvxbynhjf3h
I must be going to the wrong puestos - the ones I've gotten had a ridiculous bread-to-filling ratio and I could barely enjoy the filling
cvqpnzxnzko52min
yeah I mean they're not the height of mexican culinary accomplishments but they're a great snack
