Hospital occupancy due to COVID-19 in Baja California continues to decrease, registering as of this Saturday at 14.32%, with 809 beds and 223 ventilators available statewide, according to the Secretary of Health Alonso Perez Rico.

The number of patients hospitalized in the region today due to this disease is 100, while the number of intubated patients is 53.

And although this is one of the indicators considered for the change of color in the epidemiological traffic light, the head of this dependency maintained that it will continue in orange traffic light next week, maintaining that what prevents the transition is the speed at which the virus is being transmitted (Effective Reproduction Rate), indicator that is currently at 0.71, meaning that a person with COVID-19 in this state can infect another person.

On the other hand, the state went from 414 active cases overnight to 459 as of this morning. Tijuana increased from 185 to 200 active cases, Mexicali from 101 to 122, Tecate from nine to 18, San Felipe from four to seven and San Quintin from 30 to 31. In the case of Ensenada and Rosarito, both showed a decrease from 69 to 67 and from 16 to 14, respectively.

In addition, in the last 24 hours 103 new cases and 12 deaths due to coronavirus were reported, bringing Baja California to 43 thousand 379 confirmed cases and 7 thousand 266 deaths.
