translated from Spanish: Michoacán passes to Semáforo Verde

Morelia, Michoacan .- Although the case fatality rate for COVID-19 is still very high -9 percent-, Michoacan will enter this week to green phase in the national epidemiological risk light, reported the Crisis Committee.
Despite this progress, the Committee marked as a priority the surveillance and protection of the elderly, since it has been discovered that this population sector is the most vulnerable to the new variants of the virus, which have already been identified in patients in Michoacán, which makes it necessary to seek their protection and attention.
“We will see that the incidence of the disease is controlled so as not to return to a traffic light that implies greater risk and we will continue with the implementation and dissemination of sanitary measures throughout the state,” said the Governor, Silvano Aureoles Conejo, when leading the meeting.
He said that over the past three weeks, there has been a significant decrease in deaths at the state level; however, the municipalities of Morelia, Uruapan and Lázaro Cárdenas are where more deaths are still recorded.
According to the monitoring work carried out by the SSM, hospital occupancy is 12.4 percent and in the last week 50 deaths were recorded.
They warned that the municipalities of Uruapan, Morelia and Lázaro Cárdenas are the ones with the highest rate of active cases and that stability and control in the management of COVID-19 in the state could be broken with variants of the virus.
“The crew of Lázaro Cárdenas’ ship were bringing the variant from India and several of them were infected,” they reported.
In the area of education, it was proposed to authorize, after the electoral process, in which municipalities and schools and under what protocols a possible return to face-to-face classes could be assessed, although the State Secretariat of Education reported that no instructions have been received from the federal Ministry of Public Education.
“The failure rate of this school year is not high, but there are 100 thousand students who have not been able to have contact with their teachers and it is necessary to think about them,” said the head of SEE, Héctor Ayala Morales.
