Sandoval Gaxiola commented that a month ago it was the 20% that due to lack of resources could no longer reopen, however, this percentage doubled, and as the days go by the business bankruptcy continues to increase.

He pointed out that in addition to the definitive closings, in all the drafts personnel have been discharged in these almost three months of paralysis, due to the health emergency in the country due to the virus.

With almost 90 days that non-essential businesses are closed, they live in an extremely difficult economic situation, and almost 15 thousand workers have been lost in Mazatlán alone.

He regretted that the government left them alone in this long journey of the pandemic since they never obtained any fiscal stimulus or credits, which is why it is seeking the full opening of business by June 26.

This Tuesday, the official reopening of a thousand 445 businesses is scheduled for the lines of general clothing, jewelry, footwear, cosmetics, and optics; as well as pawnshops, household, and household items, with 6,028 jobs.
