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).
yitetmwipkbirig3d
I wouldn’t wanna go surfing during this time
vglybzhhikvkhtj3d
You’d be the only target out there for sharks
bfsfivamcimrgyp3d
Hard pass
yhqvnxkuhpygzxsmbf3d
It is!!!! 💔
itkczuoa3d
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.
uiuhimwn3d
Like people all over the world still are allowed to walk in the mountains etc.
ejtporax3d
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.
qthmroeq3d
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.
fgyvhpmhe3d
Boy it’s a pretty day today.
hcskmzzi3d
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…
fzrtvtdrtpqenfb3d
Because it fits people’s narratives
lrpiqlwnkccladr2d
Grocery store in my neighborhood is now limiting the number of people in.
sdpocxpmydxekhj2d
Definitely looked like panic mode has set in with everyone here. Not sure what set it off
xylrgimjs2d
You’re in pdc?
wgatxtxsg2d
You’re well stocked? You have water, masks?
cdwrfmhov2d
(Cash?)
unfgjpydc2d
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
ydvvhbcetfutu2d
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
wkpifwwwn2d
rkicjeszmvwquy knows the police chief and will be fine.
gpjtmavkl2d
(But seriously I hope you’re ok)
mkmcbfasz2d
First person I personally know (knew) has died of it.
expptwdfisfyras2d
Oh damn that's rough
jtnzbkdnaetoqka2d
I'm in CDMX, definitely well stocked for the time-being.
xzkeykgbl2d
Statistically everyone will be in the same boat in 4 weeks. I’m just early
liyghobwc2d
Please don’t blow this off thinking you’re invincible (which my brother in Ireland is currently doing... sigh)
otzotxlkqst2d
so in PDC everyone is sure things will blow over in a few weeks
arzrxyvxuqw2d
so nothing is getting too stringent
nuhhmjgecdskadb2d
Nah, booked an Airbnb in the mountains for at least a month to further isolate ourselves
tnabznumgpj2d
which is......... good for me because I can go to the store when I need to
pvexzjfproy2d
and don't need to bribe anyone for anything
gnfsblqpvpw2d
but not great for people who will get sick
ravnnmdfnodtwdc2d
Yeah agreed
nocfnsadzedpphg2d
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
wwenlfbvvlk2d
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 -_-
sdlmwjuar2d
Anyone with metabolic syndrome is fucked
lorpbivzb2d
Which is apparently what we call fat or hypertensive anymore
yydvahdld2d
Flan is a medication in Mexico, right?
vqncpsqpe2d
Like whiskey is in Ireland
awhffmeom2d
Cures what ails ya
lufshypgp2d
Also more men
dqprzwams2d
Which is like... a surprisingly common trope in stories I read. A significant depopulation of men.
zifzyjzyfkdvcye2d
Huh, COVID-19 is worse for men?
yiyxpwvnm2d
Yep. Much worse
xzhkwbnrl2d
70/30 split in terms of mortality in some studies
tjtgqkykrqk2d
Superama?
rmdylrmkvhdmhrf2d
oh what, that's significant
mdzttowlqicxrfk2d
Have they figured out if it's causation vs correlation?
czlliylmtzl2d
😮
nxvacjdzaiexyse2d
Sip. Superama in Condesa. Unsure if all Superamas are doing this, or if it's by location.
gduuycfyxhn2d
Interesting, well that seems like a good precaution. We went there yesterday and stocked up enough for a couple weeks 🙏
jomlcdiznproadg2d
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.
kfqeawvsfna2d
I was going to say....... is this related to how dudes do more reckless things?
cxswas2d
“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
svphmwiqbeyssp2d
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.
mbencsktsw1d
pffmxsnnsap just arrived in 🌯 Mexico City, #mexico
tzakctkpkcydsdo17h
Banning the sales of alcohol is nuts
oeudcmlvelt17h
The gringos in Baja are freaking the fuck out. Granted, there are a lot of alcoholics, so it will be hard on them
tfrxzlwz17h
I mean, is domestic violence particularly common in mexico?
yufwejpm17h
using it as an excuse to banish alcohol sales seems a bit weird
yedvjkdpeqxdmzt17h
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 🤷
ikqtlnlvgy16h
it’s hard for me to determine - a few weeks ago during women’s day there were country-wide protests against femicide
blqwaoruku16h
but man to woman violence/murder is still a drop in the ocean when you compare it to man to man violence/murder
ovhtjqjwgy16h
not saying it doesn’t exist, it’s just, is violence in mexico an issue unique to women?
fnxfjlecqry16h
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
mpaydwidkuaxx13h
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
ozoiephzsytss13h
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
eciulqjeab13h
domestic violence is up everywhere because of the lockdowns
xgtfoawfjh13h
I bet macho culture in poor places here makes men do stupid shit which get them killed. It's just bad overall.
fwdfwurkrk13h
Yep the government is not doing shit.
mddogaarprpzuwc13h
It's really sad
ikrauboufzaxrfo13h
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.
ccfndpdzngexbrx13h
That being said, everyone knows that the boss of the house is the madre 🤷
hwiysredanwvzne13h
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?
mixvceqxrxlmhlh13h
(Obviously acknowledging that domestic abuse isn't just man on woman)
lsuljvqnlg12h
Well the article says something 95%+ cases are againsts women here, compared to more against men in developed countries.
ipwiosgxjsuaqve12h
Wtf
beusoxbenk12h
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)
qbarcdaext12h
It's quite easy to imagine this happening elsewhere.
waqnqdvmdx12h
Smaller problems under lockdown can grow into big problems. People are not used to be together 24/7, even married couples.
zhpleymmwu12h
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.
dlhdfqzuyrdzauk12h
Oh absolutely, I'm not in disbelief that these issues arise during this kind of situation
htlhlpzlhzfufmy12h
Was mostly surprised at the domestic violence stat in Mexico
xgxkkwgfgq11h
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.
obxnrtd11h
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?
gecpdiqda10h
they’re just women, they can be replaced. Don’t worry about it.
vzgchxrqb10h
I think the _real_ question is why the mexico channel is attracting so many odd opinions.
zdcdakizuh10h
Did an ATM run after 3 weeks inside the house
hrrcihkxsv10h
My body is not used to walking outside anymore 😄
ursquevckeynoqn9h
Odd opinion Tortas are overrated unless filled with chilaquiles
jgbpoeh9h
gasp
bqqiikr9h
torta with chorizo plus egg or quesillo ❤️
gnzhlzy9h
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
piskvwf9h
the tortas al fuego stand has some pretty tasty options too, can get pastor or pollo adobado etc
cnnlgvfyludrelg9h
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
rwbrkvatcvm7h
yeah I mean they're not the height of mexican culinary accomplishments but they're a great snack
