To Mexico they subtract 12 days to end the National Day of Healthy Distance and return to the “new normal”, but there are still states, cities or municipalities where the trend of COVID-19 infections is upward.
However, the Ministry of Health (SSa) revealed in a daily press conference from the National Palace the existence of entities where cases of SARS-CoV-2 virus infection began to decline on the dates that were forecast.
However, he warned that this does not mean the relaxation of sanitary measures, since in other states there was a rebound in infections. Said scenario, revealed, It does not have to be repeated at the national level, as the consequences could be fatal.
The cities he mentioned are Cancun, in Quintana Roo, especially the municipality of Benito Juárez; Culiacán, in Silanoa that it had its maximum peak between April 30 and May 1; as well as Tijuana, in Baja California, where there are no contagions to the downside.
"We have already recognized the great effort of the people in Quintana Roo, their authorities and the municipal government because they achieved success, order in this very important tourist site, strategic for the Mexican economy," said Undersecretary Hugo López-Gatell.
Mexico City, on the other hand, is in the predicted area where cases could begin their decline, as long as people continue to respect the sanitary prevention measures of the National Day of Healthy Distance that are still in force.
“In the Valley of Mexico we are in the ACME zone. We have already said that it is not a specific day at an hour, It is a region in which the epidemic begins to stabilize and later to descend ", revealed Gatell.
Unfortunately, there are other entities where a spike in the disease caused by the coronavirus could have effects such as delaying the "return to normal". If this were to happen in more states or set a national trend, revival plans would take a turn.
"We need to conclude with all order the National Day of Healthy Distance, we have 12 very valuable days to stay home and later, when the openings come they have to be neat, staggered and well cared forHe asked.
Tabasco is one of the states in this situation mentioned by the undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell, who called on local people to get back on track where they came from, according to projections.
"For Tabasco I have a particular message. In Tabasco we see the behavior of two curves, what we call a bimodal curve. What this means is that at some point, on average seven days prior to May 10, the beginning of the month, there was possibly a relaxation of social distancing measures, which led to this phenomenon of transmission exacerbation. This is exactly what we don't want to happen when the opening comes, "he said.
