Corona: April XNUMX / Inflation rate and price fluctuations

Current Coronavirus Status: As of April XNUMXnd

The upper curve is the number of infected people

The bar graph below is the number of deaths

Infected: XNUMX (+XNUMX compared to the previous day)

Suspected infection: XNUMX (within the past XNUMX days)

Dead: XNUMX (+XNUMX compared to the previous day)

The actual number of infected people is estimated to be about 2 times this figure.

Therefore, it is likely that more than XNUMX people are actually infected.


According to today's newspaper article,

Inflation in the first half of April was XNUMX%,

The consumer price index fell XNUMX%.

Top 3 foreign currency revenue sources (oil, family remittances, tourism)

Mexico has collapsed and is struggling.


Mexico ranks XNUMXth in the world in terms of oil reserves.

Ranked 11th in the world in terms of production volume.

Therefore, the impact of the oil price crash cannot be ignored.

The price continues to fall as much as gasoline will fall,

The price for the first half of April is

XNUMX% for the regular with an octane rating of XNUMX,

Similarly, XNUMX high-octane is XNUMX%

price drop.


Depending on the location,

Where I always use

Before the corona disaster,

Regular XNUMX pesos (about XNUMX yen)/L

High octane XNUMX pesos (about XNUMX yen) / L

as of today,

Regular XNUMX (about XNUMX yen),

High-octane XNUMX (about XNUMX yen)

more than XNUMX%Prices are falling!

By the way, when I came to Mexico in XNUMX,

Regular was 7 pesos (about XNUMX yen). (bitter smile)


Low-lying areas where demand for electricity is high in the summer,

For example Cancun

Acapulco or

Merida or

Veracruz, etc.

Summer seasonal prices apply in XNUMX cities.


In agricultural products,

Those with high water content that do not last long,

For example,

XNUMX% red tomatoes,

XNUMX% cucumber

price is going down.

Even if restaurant demand cools down,

Household consumption should make up for it, but

I guess it's because I can't panic buy because it doesn't last very long.


Agricultural products that last for a long time,

XNUMX% red pepper,

XNUMX% eggs,

Orange is XNUMX%,

Rice (long grain rice from Mexico) is XNUMX%,

XNUMX% sugar

It's going up.

These are relatively easy to store,

I guess everyone is stocking up.


A must have for Mexicans.

It's sake. (smile)

Tequila and mezcal were not numbered.

Beer, which has a particularly large consumption, is XNUMX%,

XNUMX% for soft drinks such as cola

It's going up.


When I went to buy beer last week,

The shelves were about XNUMX% empty. (bitter smile)

At the request of the government,

Beer factories are not covered by the “unnecessary and non-urgent industry,”

This is because they are forced to stop operations.


Until the outlook for de-corona is established,

For the time being, it seems that the price fluctuation of everyday items will continue.
