Research Project Maastricht has been, and will continue to be, vigilantly monitoring the potential impact of Covid-19 on our daily operations. We continue to closely monitor the situation in Mexico and provide updated information and guidance as needed.
The Mexican government believes the pandemic is peaking this month. In a country as large as Mexico, it is not possible to establish a single peak, as the epidemic is segmented by territory. Due to this, the government expects the peak will last in some areas until October. Nonetheless, it declares itself prepared to face this period by maintaining the degree of control of public mobility during the next three months, and by the reconversion of hospitals that has taken place, in which intensive care beds have been increased from about 3.500 to 13.000.
Since our departure date is set in January, we strongly believe we will be able to conduct our on-sight research, delivering the high standards results we do each year.
