COVID-19 and Expats

COVID-19 and Expats


Highly mobile global population is one of the main reasons why COVID-19 has spread in a devastating manner. It has brought unprecedented disruption to life, making more than 6.4 million people sick worldwide. Covid-19 crisis has also taken the sheen away from many elements of expat life. Expats are either feeling isolated or finding themselves subject to stringent rules and regulations that are different from their home countries. The fear of being confined in a country with a foreign language and strict rules has made expats extremely vulnerable. 

Reluctance in Shifting to a New Country

People are now increasingly reluctant in shifting to countries where medical infrastructure is not adequate. They are prioritizing access to quality healthcare like never before. 

Planning to settle in Mexico?

If you are planning to relocate to Mexico, then preparation is the key. Since governments in different countries deal with local factors in their own manner, you must know how to handle future lockdowns. 

As far as healthcare is concerned, you can get registered with a private insurance carrier like Lakeside Medical Group and obtain full medical attention, when needed. 

Starting from routine checkups to consultation from specialists and hospitalisation, everything will be handled under Lakeside Medical’s managed care policy.
