Mexico temporarily stops brewing Corona beer
YEREVAN, APRIL 3, ARMENPRESS. Mexico’s Grupo Modelo said on April 2 it will temporarily stop brewing Corona beer and other brands exported to 180 countries after its business activities were declared non-essential under a government order aimed at curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Reuters reports.
The Mexican government this week declared a health emergency and ordered the suspension of non-essential activities after the number of coronavirus cases in the country surpassed 1,000. On Thursday, it reported 1,510 cases and 50 deaths.
The brewer said in a statement that the suspension will go into place from April 5.
