Cancun, Q.R. — Governor Carlos Joaquín has reported that the state epidemiological light starting the new year will remain yellow. Joaquin has announced that from December 28 to January 3, both in the southern and northern areas will continue in yellow.
The state governor explained that in the southern zone, the risk of contagion had ups and downs, reaching 1.5 and dropping to .7, the lowest it had been, however, it rose again to .94.
In the northern region for Cancun and Riviera Maya, he explained that the risk of infections has increased and remains at 1.08. Over the past week, 57 people have been admitted to Cancun hospitals, of which 39 did so in a three-day span. He pointed out that the hospital occupancy rate remains at 17 percent.
“We have had an increase and the northern area is under an alert,” he noted.
In a bid to slow the spread of infections, some mobility restrictions have been put back into place around the state, including sanitary filters at the entrances and exits of municipalities. Last week, Mexico’s president Andrés Manuel López Obrador said there is no decision to ban flights from the United Kingdom after the discovery of the new variant of coronavirus.
