President Andrés Manuel López Obrador ruled out that his Administration requires proof of vaccination against Covid-19 from international travelers.
“Now in Europe, there are very strong demonstrations because they are asking for a vaccine identification to move or to enter shopping centers or restaurants and people are opposing that.”
“In the case of the Government of Mexico, we are not going to ask for that type of proof that is very clear,” he said.
The chief executive admitted that although infections are growing, the number of deaths has decreased because most older adults have already been vaccinated.
“Now the infections have to do with young people, who are very resistant and have not yet been vaccinated,” he said.
