A Mexican government body is calling on authorities to investigate nightclubs that are advertising home delivery of table dances and other services amid the crackdown on large public gatherings and nonessential services during the coronavirus pandemic.

The National Human Rights Commission said Wednesday that the offerings violate both the health campaign and women’s rights. A women's activist group said earlier that the services are being offered by “men's clubs” that have been linked to allegations of sexual trafficking of women.

The group said women involved in such activities are not only being exposed to coronavirus infection but "also to different forms of violence.”
