With the registration of 6 thousand 612 new infections of covid-19 that results in an accumulated of 874 thousand 171 confirmed cases throughout the country, the Ministry of Health reported that six states already have a re-outbreak of coronavirus.
Therefore, at the national level, the epidemic curve registered an increase of eight percent.
Chihuahua -which will return to red light-, Aguascalientes, Durango, Nuevo León, Querétaro and Zacatecas, are the entities that already register a frank regrowth, for which the Federal Government asked them to review their health protocols and reduce the number of people in the public roads in order to achieve a decrease in infections.
In the case of Guerrero, which has not yet shown a rebound, the state government has already informed the federal health authorities that it will intensify prevention measures, since it has registered an increase in the number of infected people, especially in the area of Acapulco.
The consequences of this are very important. It is that the risk of covid infections is higher.
If you live in these states, you must be clear that the risk of having covid is higher and therefore you have to return to general control measures, similar to those that were had in previous stages of the epidemic, ”Hugo warned López-Gatell Ramírez, Undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion.
He added that in the face of the coronavirus outbreak, one should have realistic expectations and not believe that with the widespread use of face masks or the application of a greater number of tests the pandemic will end, because – now – it is proven that countries that have been able to carry out many tests are also registering an increase in infections.
It is very important to be aware of the reality of what is scientifically reasonable to expect. When outbreaks begin to appear in Western Europe, when in some countries, such as Mexico, there are already signs of the beginning of a regrowth, when in the United States and Canada there are also outbreaks, speculative approaches begin to emerge.
If everyone wears a mask, the epidemic will end in six weeks and there is no scientific evidence for it, ”he emphasized.
Currently, in Mexico there are 87,894 deaths confirmed by covid-19, due to the occurrence of 479 new deaths.
In addition, there are 450 suspected deaths with the possibility of a result; 4,022 without possibility of result and 10,409 suspicious deaths without sample.
With regard to suspected cases of coronavirus, there are 178,971 without a laboratory sample, 95,926 without the possibility of a result and 50,698 that will obtain it.
The estimated active cases are 49,319 and 636,391 people who have recovered from the disease.
As of October 21, there are 11,803 beds occupied, which means 30 percent of total occupation. In general beds, the occupancy is 31 percent and in beds for critical patients it is 26 percent.
