Monterrey, Nuevo León.- The Governors of Tamaulipas, Francisco García Cabeza de Vaca; Coahuila, Miguel Riquelme and Nuevo León, Jaime Rodríguez Calderón, signed joint agreements that will allow, in the immediate and short term, to cope with the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) in these neighboring entities.
In the first instance, the leaders agreed to carry out a technical justification to request resources from the Federal Government to face the contingency in addition to standardizing efforts and guidelines in schools, airports, recreational centers, parks, prisons, companies, and other areas and public buildings.
"In such a way we will be able to access these 3 states to the category of catastrophic expenses, which will allow us to provide better services in the health systems that we have in our entities," explained the Governor of Tamaulipas.
They will also establish an approach with Texas authorities to strengthen coordination and, on the other hand, coordinate and attend to migrants who are residing, mainly in camps, on the border with the United States.
«Between the 3 States we have about 25 thousand migrants stationed at our border. In this sense, we make a respectful and energetic call to the National Institute of Migration in the matter of prevention against the Coronavirus with these people who camp in places and conditions that are not adequate, "he said.
Medical procedures will also be coordinated and information on the health infrastructure of each entity will be exchanged, in addition to planning actions in specific and extraordinary situations, according to the progress of the disease.
The Health and Government officials of the state administrations of Tamaulipas, Nuevo León and Coahuila were also present at the working meeting.
