The head of the Health Department of Baja California, Alonso Pérez Rico, mentioned this Thursday that although the active COVID-19 cases have decreased in the last days, which add up to today 277, the percentage of hospital occupation "goes up between one and two percent per day".
This is due to the fact that the people who are arriving already come with the advanced disease and stay hospitalized, counting at the moment with 266 patients in this condition.
Thus, the registered hospital occupancy as of November 19 is 45.98%, with only 169 ventilators and 425 beds available. While intubated Baja Californians total 127.
