The Secretary of Health, Alonso Perez Rico, presented this Tuesday morning, September 22, the colonies of the different municipalities of Baja California where the active COVID-19 cases are located, and these are the ones that give force to this pandemic and that are associated with an activity.

As of today, the state has 159 active cases, of which 43 are in Tijuana, the municipality with the second highest number of active cases; therefore, this geolocation allows for the identification of those neighborhoods that need to be cared for in order to avoid further infections in the different localities.

Thus, according to the Secretary of Health, there are five neighborhoods in the border city where the few active cases are concentrated, which are Miramar, Colinas de California, Vista Hermosa, Nueva Tijuana and Villa Fontana; each with 2 active cases.

In response, Perez Rico asked the residents of these neighborhoods "to be especially careful when they are here. Let's use our mask more, let's distance ourselves more in these neighborhoods, which are the red neighborhoods of Tijuana, so to speak".

For the moment, there are already 18 thousand 615 positive cases accumulated in the region, where in spite of Tijuana being the second municipality, after Mexicali, with the highest number of these cases, last September 21 reported 38 new cases.

In the case of deaths, the state totals 3 thousands 410, with the border city also being the one where 6 new deaths from this disease were registered, thus remaining in second place for deaths at the state level.

Fortunately, the number of patients recovered from coronavirus in Baja California also continues to increase, with 10 thousand 745 registered, 2 thousand 641 of them in Tijuana.

Do you live in any of these neighborhoods? If you know someone who does, share this information with them.
