Traffic reduction is smaller in Brazil and Mexico than in neighboring countries

An analysis of March’s traffic congestion intensity in Latin America made by IDB (Inter-American Development Bank) shows that Brazil and Mexico, the largest economies in the region, have not reduced the flow of cars in recent weeks as much as their neighbors did. The two countries follow the same pattern in the chart: a sign that stands out that they probably are not following as closely the policies of social distance to prevent the spreading of the coronavirus, reports the newspaper O Estado de S.Paulo.
