Cozumel mayor feeling optimistic, reports no increases for fifth consecutive day

Cozumel, Q.R. — We are on the right track, stressed Cozumel mayor Pedro Joaquín Delbouis admitting that although the mobility restrictions are “not popular” they are saving lives.

Joaquín Delbouis says that for the fifth consecutive day, the island has not recorded an increase in positive coronavirus cases or deaths. He says the island, which has a population in excess of 100,000, continues to record 23 positive cases of COVID-19 and six deaths.

He says for this reason, he feels optimistic. “We are on the right track in the fight against Covid-19,” adding that tanks to the collaboration of the people of Cozumel who abide by sanitary measures, mobility rates on the island decreased by up to 95 percent last weekend, which translates into fewer infections.

During a press conference, Joaquín Delbouis said that if citizens continue to abide by the restrictions, the tourist and economic reactivation of the destination will be possible very soon.

“As I said earlier, we are not looking for popular measures, but to save lives. It is important that, as in the week that ended, in which it begins, we give our best effort to reach the descending curve in which the number of cases begins to decrease. The work we do is to protect the health of the people of Cozumel and the medical personnel who are the soldiers, who are at the forefront of the situation,” he said.
