Cancun opens for business, but risks remain

 

Airports in Mexico are open to travellers from all countries, with no testing or quarantine requirements.

Cancun, a centre for dental and cosmetic tourism, has seen a rush of visitors mainly from the USA. More flights into the city from the United States and Europe will begin in October and November. The USA no longer warns citizens against traveling to Mexico.

But the lack of COVID checks, with over 200,000 dead and 7.5 million cases in the USA, plus local outbreaks in Mexico means that resuming medical tourism is a significant risk for Mexico and the USA.

By early October, Mexico had seen 80 pandemic related deaths and 800,000 confirmed cases.
