What have your experiences during the pandemic with the local healthcare system been like?

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Mexico City, they replied...

"In Mexico City there are private hospitals that do not treat covid patients. So they are not saturated and can treat regular visits as well. The covid hospitals should be avoided though," said an expat in Mexico City.

"I had a COVID test and that went well and the staff was professional. Thank God I have stayed healthy," commented one expat living in Mexico City, Mexico.
