Inspectors shut another real estate project and fine developer for non-compliance during contingency

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Civil Protection Inspectors responded to citizen calls of a construction project being carried out during the coronavirus contingency. City officials inspected the Selvanova construction site where they found active masons and machinery.

Since all non-essential activities around the state have been suspended, municipal Civil Protection inspectors proceeded to shut the 38th Avenue real estate project and fine the developer for non-compliance.

On site masons who disagreed with the closure allegedly began to create problems for the inspectors, who were backed up by city police. Municipal Police officers arrived at the site and restored order among workers.

On Wednesday, Mexico entered into its first full day of Phase 3 of the coronavirus contingency during which time, health officials say, the person-to-person spread of the virus is expected to increase significantly.
