Mexico has declared the closure of non-essential businesses. This includes Anheuser-Busch, the producer of Corona, as well as Modelo and other beers. They expect this to be a temporary closure, but there is no firm re-open date. The company says that over 75% of their workforce is working from home. The closure has nothing to do with the mistaken assumption that there is a link between the corona beer and the coronavirus. In a poll, 38% of Americans said that they would not buy or drink the beer “under any circumstances.” The Mexican government has been slow to respond but, as of Sunday, a nationwide suspension of non-essential businesses will be in place.
