This is the moment a Mexican mariachi band play to welcome the arrival of a lorry full of Corona beer as they celebrate alcohol returning after a shortage.

The group called Mariachi Saltillo San Juan took to the street outside a shop in the city of Saltillo in the northern Mexican state of Coahuila as workers began to unload a lorry full of beer.

In the video, the mariachis in full outfits can be seen playing and singing “it’s a pleasure to see you again, to say hello to you and know you are well”.

Onlookers can be seen queuing for the beer and a pair of men then begin dancing in the street to the music.

Local media report the state of Coahuila was hit with a shortage of beer after Mexico’s federal government deemed its production non-essential on 31st March in the country’s coronavirus lockdown.

Many Mexican states prohibited the sale of alcohol during the coronavirus lockdown but the bans are now being lifted and the federal government has ordered the return to the normal sale of alcohol on 1st June.

According to the latest figures from the Johns Hopkins University, Mexico has registered 71,105 cases of COVID-19 and 7,633 related deaths.
