There are 6 states with an increase in infections; Alomía Zegarra rules out a regrowth

MEXICO CITY.

Aguascalientes, Mexico City, Coahuila, Durango, Querétaro and Zacatecas are the entities that have a sustained growth of the covid 19 pandemic, affirmed the Undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell, in the morning press conference this Tuesday in Palacio National.

Guanajuato and Hidalgo also show the beginning of a rise in cases of the new coronavirus, said the official.

On the downside and even without registration of deaths from covid-19 are Campeche, Chiapas, State of Mexico, Nayarit, Puebla, Quintana Roo, Sinaloa, Sonora, Tabasco, Veracruz.

“Chihuahua has already begun to decrease its incidence of cases, which is positive,” said the official.

While Colima, Guerrero, Jalisco, Michoacán, Morelos, Nuevo León, Oaxaca, San Luis Potosí, Tamaulipas and Tlaxcala show decreases with irregular behavior that requires measures to be taken to avoid spikes, he said.

However, in the afternoon conference at the National Palace, José Luis Alomía Zegarra, director general of Epidemiology, pointed out that although seven entities in the country show an increase in the number of coronavirus infections, it cannot be said that there is a regrowth at the national level, as most states are trending downward or on a plateau.

“For the national balance, for the behavior of the national epidemic curve we find ourselves in an average plateau with a slightly upward trend, but finally in a plateau.

“The bottom line is that we would not be talking about a national regrowth. We have increases that are seen in the epidemic curves of nine states and seven that already have a marked regrowth, “he said.

And with the registration of 493 new deaths, in Mexico the deaths from covid-19 rose to 92 thousand 593.

There are 938,405 confirmed cases of coronavirus, due to the record of 5,250 new infections.

At the afternoon conference, López-Gatell reported that Mexico will participate in the phase three clinical trial of the vaccine against covid-19 developed by the pharmaceutical company Janssen, whose official announcement will be made next week.

Regarding the participation in the research protocol of the vaccine of the company China CanSino Biologics, he informed that a call will not be opened for those who wish to participate.

He explained that in the different medical units of the country the requirements to join the study will be announced, which initially exclude people who suffered from covid-19.
