In northern Matamoras and Reynosa, we've increased and adapted our activities in a shelter and an asylum seekers camp. So far, COVID-19 patients have not been detected.
In southern Coatzacoalcos, the MSF team continues to work in “Avenida Uno” bridge via a mobile clinic. Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic our activities have been reduced due to the decrease in migrants’ movements in the area and the closure of the shelter that assisted them.
Also in the south, in Tenosique, we continue assisting the migrant population in La 72 Shelter and offer medical and psychological care and social support. We have also coordinated with the hostel to implement a protocol for the prevention and reduction of risks against COVID-19, including establishing an isolation area inside the shelter where new arrivals undergo quarantine for 14 days.
