Mexican drug cartels began to help the population during the pandemic. The country’s president asked them not to do this.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has criticized drug cartels that distribute food to the public during a coronavirus pandemic. He believes that gangs should stop violence and not help those in need. Policy quoted by Clarin.

I take this opportunity to appeal to those involved in organized crime. I saw you handing out packages. It does not help. It will help if you stop dealing with crime.

Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, president of mexico

According to Lopez Obrador, gang members should think about the suffering they inflict on their victims and their families.

In mid-April, there were reports that several Mexican cartels were sending masks, soap, and food to the public to help them survive the coronavirus pandemic. Reuters notes that drug cartels brand the boxes and leave gang names on them.

The agency was not able to verify the authenticity of the videos and photos that appeared on social networks, but it interviewed analysts, and they believe that the publications are genuine.
