However the foreigner turned very agressive, threatened the man, started coughing compulsively, and then spat on his face. Obviously, the islander immediately asked for the intervention of law enforcement officers.

Isla Mujeres police chief, Jaime Ongay Ortiz, pointed out that, following the protocols in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, the aggressor was clinically assessed and reviewed to rule out the possibility that he could be a Covid-19 carrier.

And while the tests are runned, the agressor has been placed at the disposal of the ministerial authority to assess his behavior.

“We are not going to allow either locals or visitors to disturb public order, or threaten the health of citizens. We are in a health emergency and we must be prudent at all times, but above all, abide by the recommendations of the health authorities”, the official stated.
