Although in recent weeks the Secretary of Health, Alonso Pérez Rico, said that Baja California was going to be one of the first states to emerge from the first wave of COVID-19 in Mexico, as of Tuesday July 7th, the region has already had 10 thousand and 93 positive cases.
Most of these infections are located in Mexicali with 5 thousand 480 (158 new cases), followed by Tijuana with 3 thousand 33 (48), while Ensenada has 904 (14), Tecate 248 (5), San Quintín 194 (4) San Felipe 124 (2) and Rosarito 110 (2).
Of these confirmed cases, the majority are adults between the ages of 30 and 55, classified as "the working class", while the age group of adults over the age of 65 have the second most positive cases.
At the same time, deaths do not cease in the state which reports 2 thousand and one deaths due to this virus, of which only 926 were registered in Mexicali, 893 in Tijuana, 101 in Ensenada, 62 in Tecate, 11 in Rosarito, 7 in San Quintín and 1 in San Felipe.
