COVID-19 in Rural & Marginalized Areas, Episode Two
Mexico’s COVID-19 current mortality rate is 0.26 per hundred thousand inhabitants. As of April 15, phase III spread was deemed imminent; it will be “very rapid” and “irreversible.” However, it is expected, hoped, that mitigation measures like correct information-sharing and social distancing will allow us to see fewer infections (and deaths).
PSYDEH, thus, offers to rural areas and indigenous communities the timely and relevant information, from Mexico and across the globe, they need to responsibly mitigate the spread.
