Important part for a prompt return to "New normal" and for the decrease in infections or deaths in the country, it is that Mexicans respect the quarantine proposed by the National Day of Healthy Distance.

Ricardo Cortés Alcalá, General Director of Health Promotion, assured that while mobility continues to decline, there are still states above the goal, which is to lower the average to 65%.

In the graph that was presented during the daily press conference at the National Palace, they revealed that up to a 3% increase in mobility is within an adequate range, since it could belong to people who go out to attend essential activities.

However, Aguascalientes presented an increase in mobility of up to 11%, the highest on the list. Baja California and Colima followed with an increase of 9%, as well as Michoacán with a record of around 8%.

Aguascalientes revealed that in the state, until May 19, there was a record of 151 people infected by COVID-19, in addition to the 124 patients who are still waiting for their diagnoses, as well as 20 deaths.
