    The Ministry of Health announced that in Mexico 14,677 positive cases of COVID-19 have been detected, of which only 4,972 are still active, the total accumulated amounts to an increase of 77.6%, compared to last week. Meanwhile, 1,351 deaths were registered, that is, the deaths doubled in the same period.

    Last Sunday, April 19, the country recorded 8,261 positive cases and 686 deaths. This was before Tuesday, the federal government declared Phase 3 of the epidemic, characterized by active outbreaks and spread in the territory with more than 1,000 cases.

    Jose Luis Alomía, general director of Epidemiology, announced that 67,635 people have been studied, and 45,346 negative cases have been detected. In total, 15 states are the ones that register more than 250 cases, while Mexico City is the one with the most cases.

    In a week, practically in all the states, the cases were doubled, with a few exceptions such as Sonora, Jalisco and Campeche, while other entities the numbers increased exponentially, as is the case of Mexico City, which has been considered the epicenter of the epidemic.

    This Sunday, the head of the CDMX government, Claudia Sheinbaum, reported from April 12 to April 26, the number of people intubated went from 265 to 685, that is, that in 14 days it tripled, due to the increase in cases during Phase 3.

    He also warned that there are expected to be more cases this week. "We are currently at the most critical stage of contagion in the country and, particularly, in the metropolitan area," he said at a press conference.

    86 suspicious deaths

    José Luis Alomía explained that 86 suspected deaths are still being reviewed, also the majority in Mexico City, followed by Baja California.

    "The death curve has been upward since April 15, showing a more stable trend in how these deaths have occurred," he said.

    According to the presentation made by the health authorities, the highest incidence of cases is presented by Mexico City, Tabasco and Quintana Roo.
    ar the epidemic "of COVID-19, says López Obrador

    The official said there are already eight more hospitals that can care for patients with COVID-1. With this, it was increased to 11,634 beds, that is, 319 more than yesterday.

    So far, there are 3,358 employed. In 24 hours, in the country, eight more cases were added that require hospitalization for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

    "We expect the curve to go up. Follow the call to the population to stay home. It depends on this that the beds are vacated in the following days and receive new people who require it and that it does not advance until reaching a degree that shows saturation, "said José Luis Alomía.


    Zacatecas and Hidalgo have not reduced mobility

    The Ministry of Health also announced how much mobility has decreased in the states. In entities such as Zacatecas, only a reduction of 16% has been achieved, the same occurs in Hidalgo, which has decreased 29%.

    "Durango, Hidalgo and Guerrero we see mobility that does not decrease, less than 50%, the rest of the states, like Mexico City, has reduced 57%, Guanajuato with a similar level of 55% and Jalisco also with a mobility decreased by 62% ”, said Ricardo Cortés, head of Health Promotion.

    The official invited the population to continue with the National Day of Healthy Distance, to continue with the mitigation and reduce contagions, so he asked to take the appropriate measures to carry out his activities from home.

    These estimates are made by Conacyt, with data from Google, Facebook and Twitter.

    For his part, López-Gatell said that they are concerned about the fact that, in some municipalities, the police are being used as a coercion mechanism to reduce public mobility.

    The official explained that the specific administrative actions with which the reduction can be achieved are in the hands of state governments and municipal authorities, but he rejected the use of public force for this.

    "We have said that, from a technical point of view, this is not the preferred way to reduce public mobility. For many reasons; one, because the health security provisions were designed so that the subject of the intervention was not people, and two because we are aware that in Mexico half the population lives daily, "he said.

    He added that using public force not only commits actions that can make the intervention less effective, but could also result in an increased risk of contagion.

    "Public health is designed and proposed. These mechanisms cannot be improvised and it should not be forgotten that there is no State of emergency in any way. At no time has the suspension of individual guarantees been ordered," assured.

          This Wednesday, the director of Epidemiology, Jose Luis Alomía, announced that in Mexico there are 17,799 confirmed cases and 1,732 deaths from coronavirus.

          At the evening press conference to find out the status of the disease in the country, the epidemiologist pointed out that, regarding the international scene, the region of the Americas continues to accumulate the highest number of infections worldwide, with 50.5%, followed in Europe, where the figure stands at 32.8%.

          It is worth mentioning that Mexico is currently in Phase 3 of transmission, as declared by Hugo López-Gatell, Undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, last Tuesday, April 21. This stage is characterized by reporting the highest number of infections and due to the high demand for medical care, the service in hospitals could become saturated.

          On the other hand, the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, said that the voluntary confinement has helped to flatten the epidemic curve and announced that next Thursday a projection of the advance of the coronavirus in the country will be provided.

          “A difficult time is coming. Fortunately, we have been able to flatten the curve of those infected with coronavirus cases. (...) That helps us because contagion was reduced, it became horizontal, the curve was crushed. We will have this Thursday a new screening of scientists, both doctors and those who are leading the health strategy, and mathematicians, to give us the new screening, "said the president at the morning press conference.

          And it is that, as part of the measures established to stop the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the SSa has established the National Day of Healthy Distance, which was extended until May 30. However, the Mexican president was optimistic and estimated that, if the same rhythm continues, in municipalities with low or no transmission of COVID-19, activities can be reactivated, in a limited way, as of May 17.

                        Coronavirus in Mexico today: 2,507 deaths and 26,025 confirmed cases Mexico's health authorities have said according to mathematical projections that on May 6 the pandemic will reach its maximum transmission peak in the country
                        May 6, 2020

                        In Mexico, the number of cases of people infected with COVID-19 increased to 26,025 confirmed patients, reported the Ministry of Health (SSa) on Tuesday. While the number of fatalities grew to 2,507.

                        There are 6,708 confirmed active cases, those with a symptom onset date in the last 14 days, 16,099 suspects, 63,540 negatives, and a total of 105,664 people studied.

                        José Luis Alomía, Director General of Epidemiology, confirmed that 67 evening conferences are going and 44 days after the start of the National Day of Healthy Distance. Within the international scene, he reported that there is a total of 3,517,345 confirmed cases worldwide. Of those, 1,134,466 (32%) were confirmed in the last 14 days.

                        The global case fatality rate is 6.9 percent. From April 22 to May 5, the active epidemic is concentrated in the American continent with 584,468 cases or 51.5% of confirmed cases.

                        Among the confirmed cases accumulated by federal state of residence as of May 5, they are concentrated in Mexico City with 6,999 cases, the State of Mexico with 4,353 cases, and Baja California with 1,989 cases. The three states with the lowest amounts are Zacatecas with 113, Durango with 80, and Colima with 31.

                        Most of the confirmed active cases, from April 22 to May 5, are in Mexico City with 1,714, the State of Mexico with 954, and Tabasco with 301. The entities with the least amount of active pandemic are Campeche, Durango , and Colima, with 39, 30, and 6 cases, respectively.

                        The incidence rate of active cases in the country per 100,000 inhabitants is 5.24: Mexico City, Morelia, and Tabasco have the highest rates, while Guanajuato, Oaxaca, and Colima have the lowest.

                        In addition to the 2,507 accumulated deaths, 224 suspicious deaths are also considered. “In the last days the majority of those who are still suspicious and awaiting laboratory results are concentrated. If we look at the trend of the last 10 days, we see that there is a trend that is beginning to stabilize a bit, although until April 26 the trend was still upward, "said Alomía.

                        Most of the deaths have been registered in Mexico City, Baja California, and the State of Mexico, while Durango, San Luis Potosí, and Colima, are the entities with the lowest number of deaths from COVID-19.

                        On the graph of suspected and confirmed cases by date of onset of symptoms, Alomia stated that "an upward trend is maintained in the epidemic curve of confirmed and suspected cases, especially knowing that the percentages of positivity increase".

                        In relation to yesterday, 1,120 new cases of coronavirus were confirmed in Mexico, which represents an increase of 4.5% the previous day.

                        As of May 4, the IRAG Network in Mexico reported that there are 676 reporting hospitals, of which 652, or 96%, did notify the system. Nationwide there are 14,088 SARI beds available and 6,461 (31%) occupied.

                        Within the availability of beds for general hospitalization as of May 4, there is 71% occupancy in Mexico City, 65% in Baja California, and 53% in the State of Mexico. In San Luis Potosí the percentage is 6%, and in Querétaro and Colima 5%.

                        Specifically, ventilated beds, destined for critically ill patients, Mexico City has 42% availability, Baja California 52%, and Sinaloa 53 percent. Zacatecas is the only state with 100% availability. Nationwide there is 25% occupancy and 75% availability.

                        The head of the Government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, estimated on Monday about 3,000 serious cases by COVID-19 in the worst scenario of the pandemic in the Metropolitan Area of ​​the Valley of Mexico (ZMVM). This includes Mexico City and 59 conurbed municipalities in the State of Mexico, where some 22 million people live.

                        "In terms of intubation, we are thinking that if we keep a healthy distance (hygiene and prevention measures) and stay home and if the conditions are established, it is estimated that we could reach 1,800 people who are in intensive care by COVID-19" Sheinbaum said in a video conference call.
                        According to the mathematical projections, the Mexican health authorities have said that on May 8 the pandemic will reach its maximum transmission peak in the country, with the Mexican capital being the area that so far reports the highest number of cases.

                        On the other hand, the undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell, reported this Monday that, based on mathematical projections, it is estimated that around 6,000 deaths from coronavirus will be recorded in Mexico.

                        "Regarding the mortality estimate, it is still the one we have projected. Right now, as you could see, we have 2,271 people who have lost their lives due to COVID and we are close to the midpoint of the epidemic curve. In the descent of the curve, we can have the others, more or less 2,000 or 3,000 and with it we would already have almost 6,000. ”

                          Coronavirus in Mexico today: 2,704 deaths and 27,634 confirmed cases accumulatedThe peak of infections is expected on Thursday, May 8; states such as Morelos, Puebla and Veracruz are considered red points of active cases due to the COVID-19 epidemic
                          May 7, 2020

                          The Mexican health authorities reported this Wednesday, May 6, that the accumulated COVID-19 infections are 27,634. Furthermore, since the beginning of the epidemic, Mexico has suffered 2,704 fatalities.

                          Among those positive to the disease, there are 7,149 active patients in the country, that is, they presented symptoms at some point in the last 14 days and therefore can infect others.

                          The increase in confirmed cases from this Tuesday, May 5 to this Wednesday, May 6, was 6.2%, with 1,609 positives, the largest recorded so far during the entire epidemic, which began in late February.

                          The suspicious cases, meanwhile, are already 17,553. The negatives add 65,807 patients, which gives a grand total of 110,944 people studied so far.

                          Among the confirmed positives, Mexico City is the one that has accumulated the most so far: 7,521 people. They are followed by the State of Mexico, with 4,661 patients and Baja California, with 2,097. Colima, with 31 confirmed, in addition to Durango, with 91, and Zacatecas, with 119, are the entities with the fewest cases so far.

                          In the active cases section, the Mexican capital also leads the number of positives, with 1,875, followed by the State of Mexico, with 1,046 and followed, by far, Baja California and Tabasco, with 295 and 294 infected people, respectively .

                          Colima, meanwhile, has just six active cases at the moment, followed by Durango with 34 people and Baja California Sur, with 43.

                          The incidence rate per 100,000 inhabitants is 5.59, with three most intense points in the country: the Valley of Mexico, the southeast and the northwest of the Republic. Mexico City tops the highest rate, above 20 per 100,000 inhabitants, followed by Morelia and Yucatan, below 15.

                          In addition, the health authorities specified that there are 234 suspected deaths of COVID-19 that could eventually join the column of confirmed coronavirus fatalities. The CDMX, with 604 deaths, followed by Baja California (326) and the State of Mexico (244), are the entities with the most deaths so far.

                          The network for the surveillance of Severe Acute Respiratory Infections (SARI) had a report of 96% of the hospitals participating in this mechanism, that is, 650 of the 679 in total reported their most recent figures.

                          The national total indicates that so far there are 33% of beds occupied for general hospitalization and 67% are free. The entities with the least availability are Mexico City, with 29% of free beds, Baja California, with 43% and the State of Mexico, with 46 percent.

                          On the other hand, the availability of beds with a fan is greater at the moment: at a national level, 26% of this type are employed and 74% are still free. The Mexican capital has the highest percentage of occupation also in this section, with 41% free, followed by Sinaloa, with 51% and Baja California, with 54%, of free beds.

                          Zacatecas stands out, which so far has 100% of its beds with free fans. There are 14 states with an availability of 90% or more of this type of bed and it increases to 19 states if those with availability above 80 percent are incorporated.

                          The Undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell, specified that, thanks to the fact that the Mexican society had managed to “flatten” the contagion curve up to 74% thanks to the basic measures of social distancing, the forecast for the maximum peak of contagions had changed.

                          And it is that, if the health authorities had warned that the peak would begin on May 6, López-Gatell specified that it had been delayed for May 8, that is, for this Friday. "We cannot win on all fronts: if the curve is reduced, the time of the epidemic is expanded," said the official.

                          Against this background, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador indicated that the states of Puebla, Veracruz and Morelos should take precautions, since they are red hot spots of active cases of coronavirus. It was also detailed that the DN-III Plan and the Marine Plan will come into operation to bring fans to states that require it.

                            MEXICO – The saturation and lack of information on the status of patients has worsened in some hospitals in Mexico City when there is very little to reach the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced the authorities to admit the situation and take steps to reverse it.

                            A third of the 69 hospitals enabled to attend the pandemic in the metropolitan area of ​​the Mexican capital, where 22 million people live, no longer admit patients, forcing patients and family members to undertake a long journey to get care.

                            A situation that becomes more complicated as the virus progresses, leading to 2,507 deaths and 26,025 infections in the country.

                            The capital is the main red light with more than 500 deaths and 6,785 infections when there are hours left to reach the peak of the pandemic, scheduled for this May 8 by the authorities

                              Coronavirus in Mexico today: 2,961 deaths and 29,616 confirmed cases, a UNAM scientist stated that as long as there is no vaccine, "we have to get used to the fact that COVID-19 will be part of our life"
                              May 8, 2020

                              The Ministry of Health (SSa) reported on Thursday, May 7 that the accumulated COVID-19 infections are 29,616. Furthermore, since the beginning of the epidemic, Mexico has suffered 2,961 fatalities.

                              José Luis Alomía, General Director of Epidemiology, reported that there are 69 evening conferences and 46 days of the National Sana Distancia Day. There are 7,802 confirmed active in the country, which represent the active pandemic in the country and with a symptom onset date in the last 14 days, 18,812 suspects, 68,783 accumulated negatives, and a total of 117,211 people studied.

                              In the global panorama, 31% of the confirmed cases in the last 14 days represent the active pandemic: 1,141,817. There are a total of 3,672,238 confirmed cases worldwide, while the global case fatality rate remains at 6.9 percent. Cases in America from April 24 to May 7 are 585,567 or 51%, while in Europe they are 388,532 or 34 percent.

                              The confirmed cases accumulated by state entity of residence as of May 7 are concentrated in Mexico City with 8,129, the State of Mexico with 5,077, and Baja California with 2,176. The three states with the fewest cases are Zacatecas with 128, Durango with 97, and Colima with 35.

                              Most of the confirmed active cases by state entity of residence, from April 24 to May 7, are in Mexico City with 2,051, the State of Mexico with 1,203, and Tabasco and Veracruz with 329. The lowest amounts are found in Baja California Sur with 44, Durango with 36, and Colima with 8.

                              The cumulative incidence rate map of active cases by state entity shows that the incidence per 100,000 inhabitants in the country is 6.10. The highest rates are found in Mexico City, Morelos, and Yucatan. The minors in Jalisco, Oaxaca, and Colima.

                              The graph of cumulative deaths by date as of May 7 shows that there are still 245 suspected deaths. Furthermore, most are registered in Mexico City, Baja California, and the State of Mexico. The minority are in Durango, San Luis Potosí, and Colima.

                              The epidemic curve in Mexico maintains "an evident upward trend," said Alomia, which is "expected" because in several states the epidemic peak is being reached and in others the corresponding rise.

                              The cumulative confirmed cases curve reports that it is the day with the most confirmed cases in the last 24 hours. There were 1,982 new confirmed cases, an increase of 7.2% on the previous day.

                              Regarding occupation and hospital availability as of May 6, the IRAG Network reported that there are 13,688 IRAG beds available and 6,754 (33%) occupied. There are 681 reporting hospitals, but only 652, 92%, notified the system.

                              The availability of general hospital beds is 30% in Mexico City, 40% in Baja California, and 45% in the State of Mexico. The greatest availability is in San Luis Potosí and Zacatecas with 94%, Querétaro with 95%, and Colima with 96 percent.

                              Among the availability of ventilated beds for critically ill patients, there is 64% occupancy in Mexico City, 48% in the State of Mexico, and 47% in Sinaloa. The lowest percentages are in Chihuahua and Durango with 6%, Jalisco and Sonora with 5%, and Zacatecas with 2 percent.

                              Given the paralysis that COVID-19 has imposed on the industry at the national level, the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness (IMCO) analyzed what are the best supports released by state authorities to take advantage of them in this period of pandemic.

                              The IMCO mainly identified that the states are providing more support with a view to business groups in contrast to actions to help families. In this regard, 10 states have shown interest in promoting local consumption through strategies such as facilitating home orders to keep more businesses and restaurants operating to guarantee the continuity of supply in the communities. This has also encouraged people to stay home.

                              Of all the states reviewed, only six districts have provided aid to the unemployed and only three have implemented subsidy plans, discounts and extensions in the payment of public services such as electricity and drinking water.

                              In the area of family support, state governments have focused on delivering food. Given this, governments have restructured their development budget, accepted donations from regional companies and have set up collection centers to deliver these grants.

                                Mexico, May 8 (EFE) .- Mexico reached 3,160 deaths and 31,522 infected with COVID-19 this Friday, on the day that its health authorities predicted the peak of the pandemic.

                                The Mexican health authorities recorded 1,906 new cases of infections, an increase of 6.4% over the previous day, while the number of deaths in the last 24 hours was 199.

                                "In the last three days the greatest load of confirmed cases has been registered" in a 24-hour period, explained the director of Epidemiology, José Luis Alomía, at the presentation of the technical report at the National Palace.

                                He added that there are 8,048 confirmed assets, that is, they maintain contagion; 20,571 suspects, 71,351 negatives in a universe of 123,446 people studied.

                                Alomía explained that in the last 24 hours the infections went from 29,616 to 31,522 and confirmed that the death rate went from 2,961 on Thursday to 3,160, with an increase of 199 deaths.

                                Authorities have information on another 245 deaths that are under study to determine if the coronavirus was the cause of death.

                                But, since the Mexican authorities do not carry out clinical contagion tests, it is considered that the total number of people infected in the country could be about nine times higher than that officially registered.

                                Alomía recalled that the states with the highest number of deaths are, in that order, Mexico City, Baja California, Mexico State, Sinaloa and Tabasco.

                                He specified that the Mexican capital exceeded 700 deaths from coronavirus.

                                THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT RESPONSES

                                For his part, the undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion of Mexico, Hugo López-Gatell, indicated that the Government "does not hide information", invited international journalists "to come to the" press conference and recalled that the April 13, the guidelines for completing death certificates were published.

                                The Mexican Executive assured that "it does not hide data" on those killed by COVID-19, in response to a report by the US newspaper The New York Times in which it is said that the death toll in the Mexican capital is three times higher than the 696 officially registered until Thursday.

                                In a video message, López-Gatell, in charge of the strategy against the coronavirus, justified that "deaths from COVID-19 cannot always be demonstrated."

                                According to the high official, there are people who arrive at the hospital in such serious conditions that they cannot be tested and, therefore, official statistics are "awaiting" the opinions that determine the reason for the death of these patients.

                                López-Gatell noted that the report in question incurs a "lack of rigor" when pointing out the contrary.

                                Finally, he said that "it strikes him" that this Friday the newspapers El País, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal, which were shared on networks by opponents of the Mexican government, also published news with similar content.

                                "We deny that there is a contradiction in the information and its validation is subject to scientific criteria that are updated in coordination with the scientific committees of the Government of Mexico," the Government of the capital of the country reported on Twitter.

                                Health authorities predicted that the maximum peak of the pandemic in Mexico would be reached this Friday and that in June the non-essential economic activities that paralyzed in late March could be reactivated.

                                However, this Friday the Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, explained that in the capital the major phase of infections can last until May 20. EFE
