MEXICO CITY, Mexico — Now is not the time to go to Mexico. That’s the latest from Christopher Landau, the United States Ambassador to Mexico, who said the nation is still battling coronavirus.

In a Q&A YouTube session, Landau said even though there are great deals on travel there, now is not the time for tourism.

“Mexico is still experiencing widespread community-based COVID transmission, so we recommend that you postpone your Mexican holiday at this time,” Landau said.

Mexico is slowly reopening several sectors of the economy and some areas of tourism such as Cancun, even though the number COVID-19 cases and deaths are going up every day.
