Mexico: COVID-19 impact on average household spending 2020

Approximately one third of Mexicans believed they would decrease their level of spending in the first two weeks after the COVID-19 lockdown, in comparison to their average spending, according to a survey carried out in May 2020. In contrast, when asked about the two weeks prior to the survey, 65 percent of respondents stated they had spent less than usual, while that share stood at 58 percent regarding the last two weeks of April. Months later, by the beginning of August 2020, similar figures could be observed
On February 29, 2020 the first two cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Mexico were reported. As a result of the outbreak, the government installed a federal lockdown mandate known as 'Jornada de sana distancia', which was in place between March 23 and May 20, 2020.
