"We are still in green, but the green color is not so solid, we are increasing the cases; not to the exponential degree as other states are doing, but we are increasing the cases; especially in those who are not vaccinated, in those who end up in the hospitals. To the unvaccinated we say now: stay at home," said the head of this agency, Alonso Pérez Rico.
According to what was presented, of the 33 patients who are currently intubated in the entity due to this disease, 30 are not vaccinated, while two have their complete vaccination schedule and another one is incomplete. Pérez Rico also commented that the number of people visiting the clinics due to COVID-19 symptoms is increasing.
"Every 7 to 10 days there is an increase in the number of patients who go and say: I have symptoms", however, in Baja California the positivity rate has not increased, since it remains below 20%, he assured.
Currently Tijuana is the second municipality, after Ensenada, where the virus is reproducing the most, having an Effective Reproduction Rate of 1.16 and with increasing tendencies.
