Just what is Mexico doing to prevent the spread of this virus? So far the President let two different cruise ships on two different coasts debark, one of which has many passengers and crew with the virus. I haven't read anything about the government preparing for an outbreak other than there are three hospitals in Guadalajara ready to accept patients. The populace appears to be paying attention however as they seem to be stocking up on some items, ie hand sanitizer. 

As for me, I am washing my hands, LOL.

The  Secretaria de Salud is scrambling to buy more test kits and distributing them throughout the country and using informative TV ads and broadcasted a special 90 minute conference last Sunday evening with Doctors specialized in viruses and explaining this new virus and specialists in preventive spread and containment.

From my research, if you get it, you are pretty well on your own in Mexico.

Even the CDC says on its site, that if you are diagnosed with Coronavirus, home isolation is best since hospitals are overloaded and they can only treat symptoms. If you get to the point where you are having problems breathing, then supplemental oxygen is needed, but it's still not a cure.

I may not have remembered point-on with the above, but below is where you can read it directly.

I'm choosing limited isolation for now, so sorry to some, I'll still be here. I would hate to deprive some members of their opportunity to post non-relevant, nasty comments.
