QROO, (May 13, 2021).- Quintana Roo is one step away from returning to red on the epidemiological traffic light, but in the opposite direction to expectations, after having five weeks on the rise in number of cases and deaths of Covid-19.

Last Monday, the undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion of the federal Ministry of Health, Hugo López-Gatell, announced that with the exception of Quintana Roo, 31 states maintain a downward trend and that the state maintained five weeks showing upward figures.
Last Tuesday, May 11, the governor declared from the National Palace, in Mexico City, that health protocols and preventive measures against Covid-19 have been strengthened so that tourism, an essential economic activity, is not affected.
He also announced the launch of new actions, such as the application of a greater number of rapid tests and the installation of sanitary bubbles, which will allow visitors to arrive at this destination with the confidence that they will be able to enjoy a safe vacaton.
The governor explained that, although there is an increase in the number of cases, hospital occupancy and deaths have not increased.
