Cancun covid traffic light to remain green for a second week

Cancun, Q.R. — The Cancun covid traffic light will remain green for another week. The news of the continuation in the green was made by governor Carlos Joaquin who pointed out that the northern region will remain another week in the green, while the southern region remains yellow.

The governor of Quintana Roo explained that advancement in the color of the covid traffic light largely depends on municipalities continuing to practice hygiene and preventive measures.

He said that although the southern region is staying yellow for another week, it is on the verge of advancing to a green epidemiological light. If protocols are met, next week, the region could also be listed as green.

Joaquin also said that out of the 11 municipalities, only Tulum recorded an increase in infections by 13 percent. The other 10 municipalities, he said, have recorded a weekly decrease in infections ranging from a 78 percent decrease (Puerto Morelos) down to a 1 percent decrease, which was Bacalar.

During his announcement, he noted that 75 percent of state residents who participated in the vaccination scheme have received their double dose, while 93 percent of those who signed up for the shots have received a single dose.

Joaquin mentioned that on October 19 and 20, the municipalities of Benito Juárez (Cancun), Puerto Morelos and Solidaridad (Playa del Carmen), will apply vaccines to adults 18 years of age and over.
