Mexico is ready to move past the coronavirus crisis and get its economy growing again, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said here Monday in his regular morning press conference.

"We're ready to move on from the pandemic and we need to reactivate the economy, get past the economic recession, the drop that the coronavirus produced in the world economy," the head of state said.

Four months since the arrival of the potentially fatal respiratory disease, Mexico has registered more than 216,000 confirmed coronavirus cases and 26,648 deaths attributed to Covid-19, while nearly half the country is at the level of "maximum risk."
