Mexican president toughens stance, urges people to stay home to contain pandemic

Mexican president toughens stance, urges people to stay home to contain pandemicMexico's president on Friday urged people to stay indoors to prevent an "overwhelming" spread of coronavirus, taking his strongest stance yet against the pandemic that has killed over 27,000 worldwide and infected nearly 600,000 so far. "We have to stay in our homes, we have to keep a healthy distance," Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said in a 14-minute video on YouTube, warning that the health system may not be able to cope with a mass outbreak of cases, although Mexico has so far registered far fewer cases than other countries. "If we don't stay inside our homes the number of infection cases could shoot up, and it would saturate our hospitals," he said.
