Mexico’s Liga De Futbol Americano (LFA) suspends football

The Liga De Futbol Americano in Mexico, LFA, has followed all sports and leagues throughout the world and suspended play.

The LFA had reached the midway point of the 2020 season and although the announcement states that no member of the league has so far been infected with COVID-19, the situation in Mexico is precarious. According to several reports, the government has lagged behind the rest of the world in its response to the pandemic.

On March 18, 25 more cases were confirmed raising the total to 118 cases. Authorities in the state of Jalisco, whose capital is Guadalajara, are concerned about a group of 400 people who recently returned from Vail, Colorado; 40 people have symptoms of COVID-19. The same day, the Mexican government announced that they will allocate 3.5 billion Mexican pesos (around 146 million US dollars) to buy medical and laboratory equipment, washing and disinfection material, and ventilators.
