    • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

    A northern Mexico border town across from Arizona is forcing travelers arriving from the United States to walk through a sanitizer tunnel in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

    City government officials in Nogales, a municipality in the state of Sonora, installed several tent tunnels last week that are specifically designed to release a special vaporized sanitizer at three border entry ports.

    Nogales mayor Jesús Pujol said that he hopes the tent setup will minimize the possibility of a massive COVID-19 outbreak due to the daily arrival of foreigners – mostly U.S. citizens – and Mexican nationals.

    Motorists arriving from Arizona wait in traffic as they required to enter a sanitizing tunnel in the Sonora municipality of Nogales. Government officials installed the first of five tents that spray each foreign visitor and Mexican national with a special chemical that  protects the skin and clothing from bacteria or viruses, including COVID-19, for a period of 24 hours

    The Nogales Mariposas, Nogales Deconcini and Nogales Morley Gate port of entries are each staffed with extra personnel to ensure that every person who arrives by foot or vehicle enter the tents. 

    According to Municipal Health Director, Jesús Alberto Dicochea Aguilar, each tunnel ‘applies a quaternary, biodegradable and disinfectant water solution to people that, by means of vaporization, will be supplied to the exterior of the body of individuals when crossing to Nogales, Sonora.’ 

    It protects the skin and clothing from bacteria or viruses, including COVID-19, for a period of 24 hours.

    Dicochea Aguilar said that the solution is different from what is being released by other sanitizing tents that have been set up at other points in Mexico, including food markets, public buildings and the streets.
