The Government of Mexico City reported that the capital will remain at orange traffic lights with an alert for the increase in hospitalizations by COVID, and announced new restriction measures for businesses and establishments.
Head of government Claudia Sheinbaum noted that from the following week all businesses will close again at 7 p.m. except self-service stores.
The businesses that will have to keep this schedule again are: gyms, bowling alleys, cinemas and theaters, exhibitions, bookstores, museums, aquariums, casinos, shopping centers, department stores, neighborhood businesses, aesthetics or hairdressers and amusement parks.
At a press conference he said the City is on the edge of the orange traffic light but that there is still time to reverse the increase in hospitalizations.
At the moment, in the CDMX there are 3,427 people hospitalized by COVID, of whom 836 are intubated.
According to Sheinbuam, from 12 to 19 November there was an increase of 200 beds occupied by COVID patients, representing an increase of 45 to 49% in hospital occupancy.
The number of daily revenue during November has been 282 cases, as of the 238 recorded in October.
