I fail to understand this, seems like he's going the opposite direction of every one else.

A shame to see folks misinterpret yellow journalism instead of simply looking at the facts. Due to Mexico correctly implementing protocols it had in place since China first admitted it had an epidemic, Mexico has bought itself precious time to prepare itself better. Mexico remains in Phase 1 precisely because it took successful measures from the start. But it is already taking the precautions as if it were in Phase 2.

Because so many Mexicans live on a day-to-day basis, removing their sustenance will kill them quicker than the virus. So Mexico has to walk the fine line of maintaining parts of its economy active while taking adequate protective measures that keep the population healthy. Thus the campaigns to maintain safe distances and to wash hands frequently. So far so good. Presidente López Obrador and especially the Secretaría de Salud are to be commended for their actions, not criticized or ridiculed.

Since January 3rd Mexico has apparently been doing all the correct things. It has slowed the pandemia, bought Mexico time, allowed it to plan and prepare, and hopefully will flatten the curve so that our medical services aren't overwhelmed as more cases of COVID-19 arise.
