Mexico City implements alphabetical order measures to fight coronavirus

Christian Fernsby ▼ | July 7, 2020
A very difficult proposal to fulfill when people visit the historic district in Mexico City, including the Zocalo square and its surroundings, through the initial letter of the last name, was implemented as a measure to fight the spread of coronavirus.

The idea is to reduce by 50% the number of people flooding daily the most popular area of Mexico City through a self-regulation of people's mobility.

Those whose last names start with letters from A to M can enter the commercial area supposedly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and those from N to Z can do it the other days.

The proposal also includes a specific measure, that is, the closure of the three most populous Mexico City Metro stations, including that of the Zocalo square, which significantly limit the movement of people on its access streets.

All this is due to that the historic center in Mexico City was overflowed the first day it turned orange color and healthy distancing measures were not reported at a time when the city, although registering a decrease in hospital beds, reports a high incidence in the spread of the virus.
