The social impact resulting from the COVID–19 pandemic is devastating, and its aftermath keeps getting deeper. It is estimated that the pandemic has left 70 million poor in Mexico. Hence if we are 126 million people, more than 50% of the current population cannot find the needed resources to cover their basic needs.
Unfortunately, the social policy of president Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s government is not fine-tuned. It is centered around direct money transfer programs but does not indicate comprehensive attention to avoid deficiencies in medical attention, income security, and human development.
