Cozumel reports day 8 without coronavirus increase

Cozumel, Q.R. — The Municipal President of Cozumel says that thanks to restricted mobility, the island of Cozumel has been able to maintain 22 positive cases. Island mayor Pedro Joaquín Delbouis highlighted that the destination has not experienced an increase in positive figures for eight days.

In his latest message, he noted the participation of the people of Cozumel by abiding by hygiene and healthy distance measures, as well as those of social responsibility, which has allowed the island to continue with low figures.

He says the high-end projection was 448 positive cases for May 5, a figure that was not reached. He said “the calculations of the Municipal Health Committee showed a catastrophic panorama for the island. That is why we have adopted measures that are not popular, but they are based on expert recommendations with the firm conviction of saving lives. We are on the right track and the numbers support it.”

Joaquín Delbouis pointed out that health authorities projected that as of May 5, the island could have seen a minimum of 50 cases, an intermediate level of 78 positive cases or a catastrophic high of 448 coronavirus cases.

“I want to thank the authorities with whom we have made these difficult decisions and all the people who have collaborated in compliance with the health recommendations. If we continue like this, we will be one of the first municipalities in the country to speak of a prompt economic and tourist reactivation,” he added.

Joaquín Delbouis reiterated the call for social responsibility, which runs from 5:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. until further notice, urging citizens not to let their guard down and remain in their homes to continue with zero increases in the number of cases.
