Governor warns of a return to yellow due to relaxed health protocols

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — With the oncoming holiday season, governor Carlos Joaquin is asking people to continue with health protocols to avoid regressing back to yellow.

“We cannot go back. If we relax the health measures there are possibilities of returning to the yellow light. We do not want that, and much less, during this season in which the occupation rate is growing, the number of people arriving is greater and greater, which means success for our different destinations,” he explained.

Locally, people are celebrating the Guadalupe-Reyes marathon, which passes through the posadas, Christmas and New Year celebrations, adding that on top of that, there will be around 200,000 tourists in the state.

“It is precisely the facilities for the arrival of tourists that need to maintain and reinforce the sanitary measures,” he said adding that the regression back to the first stage of the green light is being threatened with the holiday season.

“When there is a higher number of the low registry of infections that we have every day, the trends change. If we are at zero and we have a case, it becomes a hundred percent difference, and that is what marks the light points,” he explained.

“Mainly, its the trend of the federal light, therefore, any increase causes positive trends that immediately adds a number of points that today, put us only two points from the yellow epidemiological light, so we must be extremely careful at this time of year,” he stressed.

He also said that in the last 24 hours, 18,945 doses of vaccines were applied to residents, detailing that the accumulated doses applied to adults over 60 is 110,823 for the first, 107,33 for the second and 9,505 for reinforcement or booster shot. According to Health Secretary Alejandra Aguirre Crespo, the state has injected vaccines into 2,266,157 arms.
