The head of the Ministry of Economic Development and Labor (Sefoet), Ernesto Herrera Novelo, said that every 15 days the number of Covid-19 infections will be evaluated, and based on the decrease in cases, more restrictive measures will begin to be withdrawn to the economic sector and thus accelerate the reopening in areas that are still slowed down.

In this regard, the president of the National Chamber of Commerce and Services (Canacome), Iván Rodríguez Gasque, considered that, if the infection rates and the number of people hospitalized by the coronavirus remain down, more restrictions on businesses will be eliminated, Stopping distances in the city center will be reduced and working hours will be extended.

Meanwhile, the president of the National Chamber of the Restaurant Industry and Spiced Food (Canirac), Roberto G. Cantón, commented that the restaurant sector expected that the restrictive measures would be lifted even on weekends and the service hours would be extended until one-thirty in the morning, but it is expected that, according to the numbers reported by the authorities, it will be achieved before May 10.

The leader announced that the restaurant companies have their promotions ready and the capacity to serve their customers in the celebrations and celebrations for mothers when the number of attendees at the establishments is expected to increase.

In this regard, the head of the Sefoet recalled that the Covid-19 pandemic is still present in the entity, so it is not necessary in any sector to relax the sanitary measures against the disease, which will allow the lifting of some restrictions in force in the capital Yucateca and the rest of the state.

However, Herrera Novelo warned: “If we see that the measures do not increase the contagion of Covid-19, that we are doing well because we could think about removing some more limitations. On the contrary, if we have infections on the rise and sanitary measures are neglected, it is a fact that we will return to the orange traffic light and implement actions that we do not like, “he said.

He added that the epidemiological yellow traffic light is a sign that things are being done well, so health protocols and measures set by the authorities must be taken care of.
