Mexicans flock to Acapulco despite warnings of new Covid wave


Acapulco, Apr 4 (EFE).- Acapulco is ending this year's Holy Week with a flood of visitors who have overwhelmed local beaches and bars presaging a much-feared third wave of Covid-19 infection in Mexico, which so far has suffered 2.25 million confirmed cases and more than 204,000 deaths.After a 2020 during which the pandemic prevented the arrival of hundreds of thousands of free-spending tourists, the popular seaside resort has been resurrected, in a manner of speaking, into the country's most desired tourist destination because of its golden beaches and nightlife, but this has all come at a complicated time.

We're tired (of the pandemic). It has been a year with this and we know that it is still ongoing, that we cannot let down our guards but we have to live our nomal life, right?
