At the end of September, the Governor of Jalisco, Enrique Alfaro Ramírez, announced that Jalisco is already preparing to resume classes in person, however, the announcement was not well taken by the Secretariat of Federal Health, being Hugo López-Gatell who said that this should only be given when the state’s epidemiological traffic light is green, warning that the entity will remain orange and still have to go yellow and then green, so it could take another month to reach the status.
Regarding the situation of the pandemic in Jalisco, on October 4th Alfaro Ramírez lamented on his social networks that over the past week levels of contagion increased, which could subsequently lead to an increase in hospital occupation in Jalisco.
«Health measures have loosened, if we do not take them back, we will have to take steps backwards and that is not in anyone’s interest. We continue to reduce hospital occupancy, but the estimated case rate per million inhabitants is very close to reaching 400 and, if that happens, we would have to tighten the #BotónDeEmergencia.
He posted Alfaro Ramírez on Twitter next to an image in which he showed a graph with these figures.
«The health emergency has been very difficult for every family, business and business, and it has cost us all and all a lot to move forward with reviving our economy, but health is the most important thing. You know how to take care of yourself and how to take care of others, you know how to reduce the risks to avoid contagion. Use water covers, stay away from other people, and wash your hands constantly.»
The representative added, who emphasized that health protocols cannot be helped because they continue to be implemented in order to save lives and continue to revive our economy.
It should be remembered that throughout the pandemic the criteria for declaring a patient’s recovery officially have changed. Currently, symptomatic patients who meet a minimum of 10 days from the onset of symptoms and at least another 3 days without symptoms (no fever or respiratory symptoms) are considered as recovered under clinical criteria. As for asymptomatic patients, a period of 10 days after testing positive for SARS-CoV-2 is requested in order to be considered recovered. On 29 September, the Jalisco Ministry of Health also released that:
«People with heart disease are at increased risk of developing complications and getting worse if they have COVID 19, because it is not just a respiratory infection, but one that is now known, can affect other organs of the human body besides the lungs.»
The SSJ reiterates the importance of staying at home and leaving only for activities that are considered essential, as this drastically reduces the risk of contagion. In case you have to leave you ask to avoid crowds, keep distance of 1.5 meters between people, use the water cover properly and wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use alcohol gel.
