The economic impact derived from the Covid-19 pandemic has forced all of Yucatan to take drastic measures such as personnel cuts, according to a study.

Mérida, Yucatán.- 42 percent of the 130,000 companies registered in Yucatán (according to Inegi) have resorted to measures such as reducing payroll, cutting personnel and providing incentives to those who come to work in person.

The above was propitiated by the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to studies by the consulting firm Sistemas Humanos, which revealed the following information:
