On Wednesday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the arrival of 280 Mexican citizens on airplanes from the Mexican Air Force from Argentina. To date, the SRE has repatriated approximately 8,301 people from different continents since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The quarantine, which was extended by health authorities until 30 April, and the closure of beaches and other touristic places are some of the factors that have limited national flights.
