Governor warns of light revert as Coronavirus cases continue to rise

Cancun, Q.R. — Governor Carlos Joaquín González continues to express his concern at the rising rate of Coronavirus being recorded throughout the state. During his last report, he noted that the risk of contagion in the north is 1.14 compared to 0.87 last week, while in the south, the risk of contagion is 1.18 when the previous week it was 0.97.

Joaquin has stressed his concern about the state reverting back to an orange epidemiological light, which would see the closure of many businesses and allowed occupancy rate reduction in others, not to mention mobility restrictions on citizens.

He said that health and hygiene programs, particularly in commercial establishments, will be strengthened in places such as the municipality of Solidaridad where a rebound in cases has set off an alert.

This is the second time in as many weeks that the governor has expressed his concern regarding the increasing Coronavirus figures across the state. On December 4, the Undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell Ramírez announced the state of Morelos was being pushed back to an orange epidemiological light for the week of December 7 due to a rise in Covid-19 cases. At the federal level, the state of Quintana Roo is also orange, however, in a bid to renew the economy, the governor has allowed it to continue in yellow.
