In the COVID-19 cases update the Secretary of Health, Alonso Perez Rico, informed this Wednesday October 28 that Baja California continues to rise in the number of intubated patients.
A month ago the state reported 56 patients in this condition, however on October 26th it registered 86, but by the cut-off date of October 27th the figure had increased to 93, of which 45 are located in the Department of Health and 48 in the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS).
In turn, the Secretary of Health indicated that there are already 21 thousand 840 accumulated positive cases, of which only 30.2% are characterized by hypertension.
On the other hand, the number of Baja Californians who have lost their lives due to the current disease is 3 thousand 814, most of them adults over 60 years old.
Despite the fact that 15 thousand 462 patients have been recovered from COVID-19 in the region, Perez Rico called on the population to "for the love of god, use face masks". This is one of the measures that helps to prevent infection despite being at a short distance.
There are still 450 active cases in Baja California. And you, do you wear a face mask?
