Mexico City Healthcare Workers Block Roads in Protest Demanding PPE

HeadlineMay 27, 2020

In Mexico City, healthcare workers blocked main roads Wednesday, demanding the government provide them with personal protective equipment amid the ongoing pandemic. 

Susana Ballesteros: “We are asked to reuse our uniforms, that we should use cotton, to wash or reuse our N95 masks, after several of my colleagues have become infected and even died. They have even died. So we want the authorities to listen to us. We want equipment to be able to work.”
