Baja California continues to decrease its hospital occupancy, registering this Monday at 54%. In addition, compared to 30 days ago, the number of intubated patients went from 232 to 150 until yesterday morning.
Regarding the Baja Californians hospitalized by COVID-19, according to the report of the head of the Ministry of Health, Alonso Pérez Rico, there are 438, while the available beds are 435 and ventilators 178.
At the same time, the number of times a person with coronavirus in this entity infects another (Effective Reproduction Rate) is below one (0.89), which is favorable, according to the doctor.
And although this is what the federal government considered to move the state to orange traffic light, Pérez Rico said that Baja California will continue under the red traffic light due to the mobilization observed in the region, in addition to the daily border crossings, as well as the recent reopening of several activities.
"We are still under the red traffic light, in maximum alert precisely because of the conditions of our crossings with our neighbor who are coming and going every day to California, one of the most infected states of the American Union; the mobility that we have detected, and the new protocols that we have opened gradually with a reduced capacity, because that allows us to go slowly but very solidly," he said.
So far, the number of active cases has remained high in the state in the last few days, totaling one thousand 335 as of this Monday, most of them located in Tijuana where 568 cases have been accumulated, while Mexicali has registered 395 of this total, Ensenada 193, San Quintín 80, Rosarito 40, San Felipe 37 and Tecate 22.
The cases that still remain as suspects are one thousand 501, while the accumulated positive cases are 39 thousand 608 and 6 thousand 488 deaths due to COVID-19.
