MÉRIDA, MX.- Every beginning of the year it is customary to hold patron saint fairs in some municipalities of Yucatán and, for example, this weekend the Expo Feria was held in Tizimín, which was attended by more than 10 thousand people despite the presence of Ómicron in the state. Alfredo Fernández, mayor of Valladolid, upon seeing this situation, preferred to cancel this event in the municipality he presides over.

The fair that took place in Tizimín is in honor of the Three Wise Men and every year this festivity is known for bringing thousands of people together to attend the different activities that are organized.

However, last year this celebration was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and this time it was resumed under the conditions that attendees comply with the necessary Sanitary Care, however, the healthy distance was difficult to respect, since according to reports from the City Hall of Tizimín, more than 10 thousand people attended.

During this festivity it is customary to perform the ‘Baxal toro’, an activity in which even one person lost his life after being gored on December 31st in the town.

Although the Feria 2022 was scheduled to take place in Valladolid, the mayor, Alfredo Fernández, took what was observed in Tizimín as a reference and chose to announce the cancellation of the activities.

Through his social networks, this Sunday he recalled that the decision was made not to run the risk of breaking healthy distance between the population in order to take care of people’s health.

“I remind you that in Valladolid there will be no fair 2022. Let’s continue to take care of ourselves. Let’s not let our guard down,” he commented.

The decision was taken due to the increase of COVID-19 infections caused by the Omicron variant, since 189 new COVID-19 infections were reported yesterday.
