There's no outbreak here, but when it comes "everybody" is going to die. The most haphazard people I've seen in my travels. There was a guy at the open fruit market laughing at me and my mask this morning.

They have no idea. Don't they have a TV, a radio or Internet?

I doubt we have a single case in this little pueblo.

The government is responding pretty well. Problem is Mexicans are hard to govern.

Well I'm a Gringo so we're in terrible shape.

Supplies and Shortages

There are shortages, hand sanitizer, masks, food seems to be normal. In fact there is a slight abundance. Probably due to a lower rate of US exportation.

I bought 40 hand-made cotton masks, hand gel. I stay home a lot.

Yes, at home. I do graphic art.

Nope

Private Health Insurance & Private Hospitals

We Asked: Do you have private health insurance? If you have private insurance, does this give you access to private hospitals? Are private hospitals or clinics better prepared, less prepared, or the same? Please explain. He replied...

Nope, no insurance except the Vets in the USA.

Pubic. I'm not rich.

Returning Home

We Asked: Are you considering returning to your home country due to the Coronavirus? Would this be a temporary move or a permanent repatriation? Please explain. He replied...

I have nothing to go back to. I wouldn't if I did. I've been living abroad for 39 years.
