Mexico: Medical strike in Oaxaca state

Event

Medical workers in Oaxaca state have ended a strike, initially launched in mid-January, following an agreement with the government. However, certain workers have rejected the agreement and continued with the strike as of Monday, February 19, in hospitals in various areas, including the cities of Oaxaca and Tlacolula. Associated disruptions and continued protests are thus possible.

Advice

Individuals present in Oaxaca are advised to avoid all demonstrations as a precaution and confirm doctor's appointments.
