Today it was announced that Baja California will have restrictions on businesses for the expected date of Valentine's Day, which will be the following Sunday. This is in order to avoid new waves of infections like the one that happened in October with the celebration of Halloween.
According to the Secretary of Health of Baja California, Alonso Perez Rico, they are working on the limitations for businesses and he stated that this time they will be stricter with the established measures. Once again, bars will not operate during the festivity.
According to Perez Rico, it would be important for these types of businesses to remain that way since the measures are working and the less COVID-19 cases are registered the faster operations will resume.
On the other hand, the epidemiological traffic light for coronavirus keeps 13 Mexican states in red and 17 in orange, among the latter is Baja California. However, state authorities have decided (as they have done for several months) to continue in red.
At the moment, Baja California has confirmed a total of 43 thousand and 24 people who have tested positive for the coronavirus, while it has registered 6 thousand and 973 unfortunate deaths due to the virus. As for our country, it is close to reaching 2 million cases.
