During his daily report, the Baja California Secretary of Health, Alonso Pérez Rico, emphasized a fundamental factor on which the reopening of the border with the United States will depend: incidence.
The doctor assured that based on this data, the North American government could relax the restrictions with Mexico if it sees the effective reproduction rate of the virus and if the percentage of infected per 100 thousand inhabitants decreases drastically, successfully supported by vaccination.
So far Tijuana has a lower incidence with 9.21, however Mexicali continues to increase the number of COVID-19 cases and its incidence is 38. The Secretary highlighted that the epidemiological traffic light has not changed to green in the whole state due to the fact that in Mexicali the infected curve has a high tendency and is in red, so the colors are independent according to the municipality.
The state will remain in yellow traffic light for an indefinite period of time, but if the downward trend continues during this last phase of the third wave, the situation may change and we could make the transition to green in a few weeks.
Mexicali has presented 28 new cases in the last 24 hours, Tijuana 23, Ensenada 24, Tecate 3, Rosarito stayed the same, San Quintín 1 and San Felipe 3. With 231 beds and 169 ventilators available, 58 patients have been intubated in the hospitals, of which 54 have not been vaccinated. Hospital occupancy is 49.70%. With 231 beds and 169 ventilators available, 58 patients have been intubated in the hospitals, of which 54 have not been vaccinated. Since the first confirmed case in Baja California there has been an average of 16.47 deaths per day in the state.
Pérez Rico warned that in December the fourth wave of infections will be approaching because the cold season causes respiratory diseases; in spite of this, he was optimistic that with the advanced vaccination there will be much less infected people, so he invited the population to get the antidote.
