It's still unclear what happens to Mexico. Zacarias was part of every tie and she tested positive for doping here.

It would be unfair to punish the whole team for Zacarias' mistake.

On the other hand it must be said that Zacarias and her wins were pivotal for the promotion.
Zacarias won important live rubbers in every tie for Mexico. And doping should be punished.
