I wonder how many people on this forum are aware of the policy changes this president has made and that we are definitely headed for a populist or dictatorial government. Censorship has been in place now for over two years and he has made constitutional reforms that are affecting Mexico's economy and the environment.

.....policies that have now turned the state of Guanajuato into the most dangerous in the world


I suspect that no one knows this here.

Also, the State of Guanajuato is a surface transportation (strategic) chokepoint for almost all surface goods and people traveling North/South through Mexico. I could see why, um, "special interests" would want to control "it".

I suspect that tourism will remain roughly the same as it is now (well, as it was pre-pandemic). My experience living in Mexico (and Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua) taught me that as dictatorial regimes flourish, the currencies of the affected countries crash, and that open opportunities for phenomenally cheap vacationing and snowbirding. However, there is a double-edged sword (correlate) when this happens: ....the cheaper tourism gets (as a result of widespread State instability), the more risk the traveler has to assume.

Anyhow, that has been my experience living (and, working) in Latin America for close to a decade. YMMV.

"My gut feeling as well, but what is happening in India is alarming."

Please keep in mind that India's population is 1.19 billion people. On average 26,000+ people die every day in India compared to 8,000 people dying every day in the US. 2021 population of the United States is 332 million people - a fraction of the number of people in India.

True enough, but it is still a big risk for emergence of dangerous mutations.

One thing to consider is the emergence of a dominant non lethal mutation. It is sometimes speculated that that is what ended the 1918 pandemic. It is not in the intersts of the virus to kill its host.
