SMM: according to reports, May 22, the Mexican state of Puebla announced that the state's auto industry "does not have" the conditions to restart production, which means that automakers will have to postpone resuming work in the state.
German carmakers Volkswagen and Audi operate large factories in Puebla, southeast of Mexico City, but both automakers have suspended production at their factories in the state as a result of the epidemic.
On May 18, the Mexican government issued guidelines for the resumption of operations in the automotive, mining and construction industries, although the epidemic is still severe in the country. On the evening of 22 May, the state government of Puebla issued an official decree. The state said in its decree that the resumption of work would be postponed until health and safety conditions permit, which also applies to the construction industry.
Miguel Barbosa, governor of Puebla, said: "the worst is yet to come, and the wave of infections and health risks are still everywhere." The decree comes a week after a record number of infections and deaths in a single day in Mexico.
Barbosa, an ally of Mexican President Ander é s Manuel L ó pez Obrador), said he also wanted to restart the state's economy, "but this goal cannot be achieved at the expense of the lives of the people of Puebla."
