The celebration of the Vive Latino sparked a great controversy.

Countries like Italy and Spain were in check by the Covid-19, and the number of cases there, increased at the speed of gunpowder. In Latin America, nations such as Argentina or Peru were armored against the coronavirus and took drastic measures to prevent the spread of the disease in their territories. And while, in Mexico the authorities continued with an astonishing normality.

The Mexico City state executive allowed the celebration of Vive Latino, an event that hoped to bring together 70,000 people, but which ultimately only brought together 40,000.

Some groups such as All Them Witches, Ambar Lucid, Rodrigo and Gabriela, Enrique Bunbury, Fangoria or Vetusta Morla canceled their performances, believing that it was not safe for fans. On the day of the concert, the Ministry of Health had already reported 41 cases in the country. Soon after, on March 18, the first Covid-19 death would occur in the Republic.

Despite the international situation, the spread of the virus throughout the territory, and the cancellation of different gangs, the festival was held. And a health operation was deployed that included eight medical tents, filters with infrared thermometers at the entrances, 92 paramedics, 10 doctors and 8 ambulances.

Although 27 people with high fever were detected in these controls, it was ensured that none carried any danger, since in specialized reviews cases were completely ruled out.
