Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) announced on Tuesday, Nov. 24, that the government will soon begin issuing cash payouts to the families of people who died of covid-19 to help with funeral expenses.
During his daily morning press conference; AMLO said that families that present a valid death certificate verifying that the victim died from a coronavirus infection, will receive up to 11,460 pesos for end-of-life expenses.
Although the announcement was made by AMLO with Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) Director Zoé Robledo, AMLO noted that all families would be entitled to the money, regardless of their economic status or whether they are members of the IMSS.
Eligible families will be able to apply for the financial assistance starting on Dec. 2 through the webpage Deudos COVID-19.
