Decrease of cases in Tijuana, Mexicali and Ensenada could allow for an increase in activities and capacity

Baja California's Secretary of Health commented that the decrease in the incidence of COVID-19 observed in Tijuana and Mexicali "will allow us to open more".

COVID-19 trends in Baja California continue to decrease. In the last 24 hours, 87 new cases and nine deaths were registered in the state.

In addition, active cases decreased from 681 to 637 thanks to the fact that the largest municipalities in the state: Tijuana, Mexicali and Ensenada reported fewer cases, going from 273 to 251, from 217 to 206 and from 118 to 101, respectively.

In turn, Tijuana and Mexicali are where the incidence rate for active cases per 100 thousand inhabitants is one of the lowest in the region, being 13.78 and 18.56, respectively.

"Congratulations to Tijuana and Mexicali, which are continuously decreasing their incidence and this will allow us to open more. We are going to see what is happening with these activities that increased their capacity and to keep a controlled figure and that February 14 does not hit us too much, we are going to increase activities and we are going to increase capacity," said the head of the Secretariat of Health, Alonso Perez Rico, this Tuesday during his daily report.

Other indicators that continue to fall are hospital occupancy, which as of this morning is 27% statewide, as well as the number of intubated and hospitalized patients, with a total of 83 of the former and 192 of the latter.

According to what was presented by Perez Rico, 42 thousand 431 COVID-19 infections have been confirmed in Baja California, while 7 thousand and 93 have lost their lives. In both cases, Mexicali, Tijuana and Ensenada have been among the most affected by the pandemic.
