Virus fails to dampen spirits at Mexico festival

Mar 16, 2020 13:42 IST

The coronavirus pandemic failed to dampen spirits at the Vive Latino Festival in Mexico City on March 14. The festival, one of the oldest music events in Mexico, went ahead as scheduled, even as numerous concerts and sporting events around the world were cancelled because of the virus. Mexican authorities have yet to ban large-scale gatherings, although they are encouraging "social isolation". Organisers checked the temperature of festival-goers as they arrived, and many wore face masks.
