Phase 3 against the coronavirus in Mexico: what it means
In Phase 3 registers a spread extensive and thousands of people are affected by the virusin this case the coronavirus. Chains of propagation are difficult to break, which requires strategies more drastic.

López-Gatell also explained the reasons for a confinement total in Mexico is unfeasibleunlike other countries such as China, Italy, Spain or the united States, which are some of the largest economies in the world.
