    Mexico totals 132,069 deaths per covid-19 and records 1,507,931 cumulative cases of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus according to the latest report released by the Ministry of Health on January 8.
    In addition, there are an estimated 1,689,963 cases, of which 87,856 are estimated active cases, while 1,134,877 people have recovered from covid-19, said Jos? Luis Alom?a, director of epidemiology. Mexico City and the State of Mexico announced they will remain in the red due to the infections and hospital occupation in these entities.
    Mexico City is the entity with the highest hospital occupation for coronavirus in both general and ventilator beds, reporting 89 and 86 percent, respectively. Of the 31 thousand 561 general beds, 17 thousand 711 are occupied. Guanajuato is in the second place of occupation with 83% and is followed by the State of Mexico with 82%. Meanwhile, of the total 10 thousand 290 beds with ventilator, 4 thousand 866 are occupied.
    In the country, 67 thousand 468 people have been vaccinated against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, informed the director of Epidemiology; he detailed that this Friday 6 thousand 623 doses were applied. Alom?a detailed that 107 thousand 250 vaccines against covid-19 have been received in four shipments, of which three have already been applied at 100 percent. Of the 53,625 doses received on January 5, 26 percent have already been applied.
    Next week, the arrival of half a million doses of Pfizer-BioNTech's anti-covid vaccine is expected, which will formally lead to the national vaccination plan, informed the director of Epidemiology. "Next week is when the arrival of a much larger endowment is expected, just under half a million vaccines, 436 thousand to be exact, which will require that with what has already been calibrated so far, this activity will be carried out in many more vaccination points," he said.
    (Note from Marylou: The point of that last sentence is that vaccinations have happened in very few cities, and the majority have taken place in Mexico City. Now that the shipment from Pfizer has been confirmed, the states now have vaccine numbers and weekly arrival dates so that they can begin vaccinating public and private health care workers.)
