Travel agents in Mexico are starting to be more open to testing for the Covid-19 vaccine and are offering to help people avoid travel to the country if they have the virus.
In a report published Friday, the Institute for Security Studies said that the government has also started sending doctors in Mexico to check on travelers.
The report cited a source who said that in the past few weeks, the government had sent over 300 doctors in the country to help with coronavirus tests.
“Since the start of the pandemic, travel agencies in Mexico have become more open in their policy towards the coronaviruses, and they’ve started to work together with government ministries to share information about testing and travel to Mexico,” said David J. Felt, director of the Institute of Security Studies at Johns Hopkins University.
“The goal of these efforts is to make it easier for people to avoid the pandemics while also providing people with the information they need to avoid contracting the virus and returning home.”
While the vaccine was still being tested for in Mexico, the IOS said that health authorities are also starting to share health data from the virus to help them monitor people.
That information can help people who are sick and need care quickly, the report said.
The report noted that the ICS is concerned about the potential negative impact on people who may be able to avoid travel for a few weeks by testing for coronaviral illness.
The ICS added that the travel agents in the region “are offering to offer to help patients to avoid traveling to Mexico in the event that they have Covid in their system.
Travel agents have been known to work closely with governments to share risk information to help individuals avoid travel, and the IHS is hopeful that this approach will lead to a greater openness and willingness to share such data to the public.”
