Mexico City cannot rest. A few weeks ago the Coronavirus (Covid-19) arrived in the country where almost 60% of the working population engages in informal trade. Thousands of people survive on their daily earnings, without established wages and based on tips. Those people who mantain a fundamental part in the economic balance are those who in this times of quarantine go out to the streets to work to survive each day, putting their health at risk in critical moments of Covid-19. The streets are not empty; public transport continues to function with people who live daily despite the protection and hygiene recommendations. In Mexico life goes on.
