MAZATLÁN.- Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres said that his government does have a plan for the economic reactivation of the port, however, there is still no date for it.

Mazatlán is in the critical stage of the health emergency due to the Covid-19 coronavirus, he argued.

“Right now there are no changes, I know that people are desperate, but there are no changes, businesses are not reopening, nothing changes, right now we are in the critical stage, and the only way is the full cooperation of Mazatlan society to be able to go to that part. “

Five days after completing a month that confirmed his suffering from coronavirus, the mayor of Mazatlán reappeared at a face-to-face press conference, in which he assured he is fully recovered.

According to a statement issued by the City Council, Benitez Torres is back in his duties as “after his full recovery from Covid-19, and in his first meeting with the media, he thanked God for this new opportunity in life.”
He recognized that it was not easy, since he had all the odds against him, however, he believes that God has something significant for him.


“Tell them that we are back, thank God. I must admit that it was not easy, we had very difficult days; Having everything against such a disease is not easy (…) However, I believe that God has predestined me for something important, because here we are, ”he said.


He assured that during his recovery, he never stopped working for Mazatlán, and that proof of this are the 50 works that have already been completed and will soon be inaugurated. These works are part of the 255 new works package that will be delivered this year.
