24 entities in the country will end the year with the high risk level of COVID-19, the orange color, of the epidemiological traffic light announced by health authorities.
In addition to Mexico City and the State of Mexico, whose authorities announced the entry of the red light, Baja California is the third state to report maximum risk.
Sinaloa, Tamaulipas and Veracruz, who increased the level of risk, are at medium risk (yellow), while only Chiapas and Campeche retain the green color by keeping the level low.
Thus came the #SemáforoEpidemiológico🚦 which will enter into force from 21 to 3 January in 30 entities; in the #CDMX and the #Edomex the term will be from December 19 to January 10, 2021. pic.twitter.com/BXZ01IKdVA
