During the COVID-19 cases update in Baja California, the Head of the Department of Health Alonso Perez Rico mentioned that this Tuesday, August 4, all counties have decreased their active cases, adding up to a total of 408 of these cases in the entire state.
However, as it has been said that the active cases are the ones that give strength to the pandemic, since they allow for chains of transmission, which is why Perez Rico presented the location of these active cases in each county of the region, as well as the neighborhoods with active transmission.
In the case of Tijuana, which as we saw registers 107 active cases to date, they are located in Zona Rio and in the Camino Verde/Grupo Mexico neighborhood where there are activities that are associated with transmission chains, according to the Secretary of Health.
Perez Rico explained that in these neighborhoods, according to the coloring on the maps, have between 5 and 7 people registered as active cases.
For his part, the health expert showed that at least in Mexicali there are 9 neighborhoods that have chains of transmission, due to the number of active cases found in this county, which occupies first place on this list.
Meanwhile, positive cases in Baja California total 13 thousand 821, of which 7 thousand 100 are reported in Mexicali, 4 thousand and 93 in Tijuana, one thousand 577 in Ensenada, 327 in Tecate, 323 in San Quintin, 223 in San Felipe and 178 in Rosarito.
