Mexico, Tijuana:”In Tijuana the night life and sex trade carry on despite coronavirus

Although the Mexico-United States border remains closed to nonessential travel, tourists are still traveling south to Tijuana in search of nightlife, drugs and sex.

In the city’s red-light zone, strip clubs and brothels may be officially closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but many are simply allowing customers to enter through the back door and a number of the city’s 8,000 registered sex workers — prostitution is legal and regulated in the area — continue to walk the streets, unable or unwilling to choose between working and eating.
