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 number of documented cases of Covid-19 keep rising in Mexico and local authorities have previously said they believe the real number of infections is likely to be significantly higher than those reported. Because of the rising number of cases, the country has been in a general lockdown till January 10th. The government’s medical safety commission has recently approved the use of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine, following approval by Great Britain and Canada. The first 250,000 doses will go to health workers.
After close contact with the Mexican Embassy and the University of Maastricht, our departure is postponed for April 6th. We will again conduct our on-site research, delivering the high standard results we do each year, while taking the precautionary measures needed with regard to Covid-19.
