Cancun, Q.R. — After more than six weeks into the country’s Sana Distancia for coronavirus in Mexico, the undersecretary of health says the state of Quintana Roo is in the stabilization phase.

Hugo López Gatell-Ramírez, subsecretary of Prevención y Promoción of Salud for the Gobierno of México says that the state has finally reached its decline phase. The announcement was made during a press conference at the National Palace where he confirmed the new figure of 35,022 cases for the country.

During his conference, he pointed out that Quintana Roo is the only state showing stability, adding that when observing information of the “Incidence Rate of Active Cases by Federal Entity”, Quintana Roo, which was more active 10 days ago, is now being displaced in transmission intensity by Mexico City, Tabasco, Morelos and Yucatan.
