How will the COVID State Indicator (IEC) of Aguascalientes work?
During the presentation of the COVID State Indicator (IEC), the governor of Aguascalientes, Martín Orozco Sandoval, explained that with this new monitoring system that will measure population epidemiological risk in each municipality and that will allow to define mobility restrictions, it seeks to counter the level of contagions of the coronavirus pandemic. At the event were the mayors of the 11 municipalities of Aguascalientes in order to understand and apply perfectly the new protocols that will be published in the coming days in the Official Newspaper of the state of Aguascalientes (POA). Martín Orozco highlighted that the state government and health authorities have been forced to create this new mechanism because in recent weeks the Aguascalentenses have begun to omit the health protocols implemented to cut the chain of contagions of the SARS CoV-2 virus.
«There has been a relaxation of health measures by the population, which is why this new strategy, which will be supported by the municipal authorities and the State Congress, strengthens the fight against COVID-19»

Highlighted. Officials explained that this COVID State Indicator (IEC) will periodically disclose social mobility restrictions through a map in which there will be four degrees (or levels) of risk on the pandemic and therefore each will have health protocols of its own to respect around social mobility and economic revival. Health authorities explained that the IEC will be composed of the indicators of Positive Results Index, Active Case Index, Case Trend and Mortality. Municipalities shall be classified as four degrees of risk, which shall be determined according to a numerical average of the above-mentioned indicators: 
Grade 1: LEVE risk (0.0 to 2.0) 
Grade 2: LOWER risk (2.01 to 5.0) 
Grade 3: INCREASED risk (5.01 to 8)
Grade 4: MAXIMUM risk (8.01 onwards)

They mentioned that according to the degree to which each town hall is placed, restrictions on social mobility were determined at public road events or parties, markets and tianguis, parks, gardens and squares. Also in public shows in enclosed and open spaces, patron saint festivities, markets and plants, as well as in pantheons. For establishments with turns regulated by the town halls (bars, canteens, nightclubs, halls and party gardens, etc.) changes were indicated in the percentages of capacity and schedules, depending on the degree presented by each municipality.
«The support of the Eloscalentenses is essential, as it is up to everyone to avoid collapse in hospitals and to subject health personnel to long working hours.»
