My wife tried to break quarantine this weekend

To go visit her family on mother's day.

But every hotel in Mexico is closed due to COVID-19.

Let me repeat, every hotel in Mexico is closed due to COVID-19.

So even though we could have stayed at her mother's, or with one of her sisters, or with her daughter, the mere fact that they're taking COVID-19 so seriously in Mexico was enough to giver her second thoughts and stay in quarantine.

1. What's The Disease Situation There?

Big cities getting pounded like elsewhere?
I know Mexico City & surrounding towns are quite crowded.

4. What's Their Testing Regime?

That seems unrealistically low. A fortieth of a percent?
Given the perniciousness of the virus, that's hard to believe.
The OP has family there and their view may be different than the official numbers.

15. Agreed; I don't trust the official numbers either.

But if the hotels are shut down by federal order, things are bad.

And see this cross-post:

9. Second Reply

Check this headline from NYT, regarding Mexico.
Looks like their official numbers are not reliable.

10. We're going to have to shutdown again in about 3 weeks

I walked around town yesterday, and there were people out congregating in groups, and filling restaurants (at least the ones that were open), with barely anyone wearing a mask.

I'm in Texas, and we didn't even peak before our idiot governor decided to re-open, making it illegal for local governments to require masks.
