The Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Mexico began distributing thousands of antibacterial gel bottles or hand sanitizers this week to persons over 65 with chronic diseases and special needs, as cases of the coronavirus increase in the country.
As of Mar. 25, Mexico’s Federal Health Secretary reported that there were six deaths as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, 475 confirmed cases, and some 1,656 suspected cases.
More than 180 ADRA volunteers, most of whom are church members, took to the designated homes and busy streets in Mexico City, on Mar. 21, 2020, to bring about more awareness of the preventive measures put in place to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
