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. Although president Andrés Manuel López Obrador is eager to restart the country’s economy, the country might be forced to delay plans for easing restrictions. In a country as large as Mexico, it is not possible to establish a single peak, as the epidemic is segmented by territory. Consequently, the government expects the peak will last in some areas until October.
As our departure date is set in January, we strongly believe we will be able to conduct our on-site research, delivering the high standard results we do each year.
