It is essential to maintain basic preventive measures, such as the correct placement of mouth covers and its use in accordance with the provisions of each locality; as well as maintaining a healthy distance, frequent hand washing with soap and water or application of alcohol-gel as many times as necessary and ventilation of spaces, in order to reduce the risk of contagion.

Under this logic, it should be remembered that there are some states of the republic that once again implemented the use of face masks as a preventive measure to avoid contagion in an accelerated manner; However, this measure is not the general one since it only applies in five of the 32 states: San Luis Potosí, Nuevo León, Puebla, Tamaulipas and Baja California Sur. In this regard, it is recalled that since the pandemic began in Mexico, the federal authorities gave state authorities autonomy so that they can decide on the strategies they decide to apply due to the particular cases that arise.
