Health authorities, meanwhile, recognize an uptick, although they maintain that the number of people hospitalized for serious illness and deaths is not growing at the same rate. 
This is attributed to the fact that a high percentage of the population is already vaccinated and protected against severe COVID-19.
The Ministry of Health reported last Monday that it would resume its daily technical reports, after acknowledging that there was an uptick in infections.
The Undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell, recently told the media that Mexico must prepare for COVID-19 to become an endemic disease with which citizens must deal.
