Claudia Sheinbaum, the head of the Government of Mexico City reported that next Wednesday, May 20, the new measures for the continuation of the health emergency due to coronavirus will be announced, as well as those of the New Normal.
“On Wednesday we will be presenting some details of the contingency and the reopening towards the New Normality, We will be generating this important information for everyone in Mexico City. ”
"We will be announcing the conditions and probable start dates of different activitiess (...) we are going to announce this whole topic from work activities, public space, schoolchildren, vulnerable people, "he said.
In this sense, he indicated that su government works together with the State of Mexico to analyze the new measures, because it is a metropolitan area of 22 million inhabitants, especially in relation to activities labor, educational, public space and epidemiological monitoring.
In addition, he advanced that in the budget case, a downward adjustment of 20 billion pesos will be made, stressing that this will not imply the dismissal of public officials at any time, which will have to go through the local congress for approval.
Likewise, he recognized the effort that the different public health institutions are making.
On the other hand, he mentioned that at the end of May it is expected that in the capital of the country there will be at least 8,000 intubated due to serious cases of coronavirus, so the local president again asked everyone to avoid leaving the house if it is not strictly necessary.
According to the official, in Mexico City there is an availability of 631 beds (39.1%) in the intensive care area in hospitals to care for patients with coronavirus.
"This week we think grow more both in the area of hospitals of the federal secretary of health, we are talking about the health institutes, and also the Sedena It is going to have a growth not so great, but a growth ", he assured.
At the moment they register 3,177 patients not intubated and 982 intubated. 3,861 people have been recovered in hospitals and 11,323 from home, according to Locatel.
Likewise, regarding the confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Mexico City, it indicated that until last Sunday they added 13,672, while the number of hospitalized amounts to 3,177.
In that sense, he explained some of the challenges that ambulances have faced to find an unsaturated hospital. There is a permanent regulation for ambulances.
The Regulatory Center for Medical Emergencies (CRUM) of CDMX had (even before the pandemic) a system where if someone needed an ambulance and that person was part of the IMSS, the IMSS CRUM was spoken to, however, “now that everything is open, we continue to work with the city's CRUM with that of the IMSS, that of Sedena… that we have been improving every day. Maybe an ambulance arrives at a hospital that is already overcrowded, but the recommendation is that they use the emergency medical system so that they can be redirected, ”he clarified.
Finally, he made a new call to the population of the Metropolitan Area of the Valley of Mexico to continue with the measures of healthy distance, and the indication to stay at home, since "We continue at a red light."
"If we now release that discipline, we are going to lose what we have gained in the last month and a half," said Sheinbaum Pardo.
