Governor stresses Cancun, Riviera Maya one step away from reverting back to orange

Cancun, Q.R. — Restrictions on gatherings continue throughout the state with Governor Carlos Joaquín noting an increase in Coronavirus infections that could see the north revert back to orange.

He explained that although the state remains in a yellow epidemiological light from November 2 to 8, there are signals that the northern region is one step away from returning to orange with a .98 to .99 risk of contagion.

For this reason, he said there will be strict inspections and reviews in establishments this weekend for Day of the Dead to avoid outbreaks.

“Parties of this type are not allowed. We cannot put the health of our people at risk and even more, risk returning to confinement in orange, in red,” explained the governor of Quintana Roo.

Carlos Joaquín said that we are still in yellow throughout the state, but one step away from returning to orange. “We registered a rebound in the risk of contagions and it is worrying. We are not in green and in no way are we going to lower our arms. On the contrary.

“A complicated weekend is coming with the Day of the Dead and we have seen a large number of parties announced in Cancun, Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Mahahual, and that is not allowed,” he stressed.

The governor of Quintana Roo says people need to think hard, emphasizing that it is not worth it since we are still in a difficult time of the pandemic.

“We can go forward. We can recover better in the economy, but we cannot go back,” he said saying that in many European countries there are new Covid-19 outbreaks and infections that have lead to high hospital occupancy rates, border closures, and so on.

For this reason, he said that there will be strict control and reviews to avoid parties and mass meetings.
