Models and Responses

You are right Medical Experts should make the decisions.
We are very fortunate in Canada our Chief Medical Officers in each Province have control and have been exceptional.
Trudeau just repeats himself daily and gives money away. No control over the Provincial Health Systems.
The only good thing he has done is keeping the 49th closed for non essential travel.
Mexico still doesn't have my faith in dealing with Covid hope it doesn't become Brazil.

I'm curious if you are still getting your Mexico information from a third party or if you are actually watching any of the briefings where all these matters are discussed and questions you bring up are answered without resorting to political opinions or insults. It's fine for you to disagree with the Mexican government's response, but if you don't actually know what it is but instead rely on third party info then you leave yourself handicapped.

For example, you may think "giving money away" aka economic stimulus is bad because you're a person who's worked hard and saved up and been fortunate to achieve a level of economic comfort and independence, and apparently your political leanings don't allow anyone else to be any less industrious than you. Fine, an erroneous point of view IMHO, but it's yours. Nevertheless, there are people who through no fault of their own have lost their income and whatever savings they had, and giving them money stimulates the economy and more importantly keeps them alive until they can get back on their feet. We all pay taxes that go for things we don't always benefit from directly, but that's what being a citizen of a democratic nation is all about. A rising tide lifts all boats.
