An expanded vaccination day will be implemented in Health Centers of 30 municipalities across the state and will be complemented by the work of 12 mobile vaccination units that will be deployed to visit several communities, reported the Ministry of Health (SSY).

The mandatory use of face masks for the entire population, including the vaccinated population, is reiterated, and the population is recommended to avoid the use of cloth face masks or scarves since it is described that IT DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY PROTECTION AGAINST COVID, INCLUDING THE ÓMICRON VARIANT, so, to protect us all, the use of two-layer, three-layer or medical-grade masks such as KN95 is suggested, since these have up to 95% coverage against Omicron.

As has been pointed out, in the economic reopening the most important data are hospital occupancy and daily admissions. Today we have 9 patients in public hospitals.

102,685 patients have already recovered: they have no symptoms and cannot be contagious. This figure represents 93% of the total registered infections, which is 109,672.

In the last 24 hours, a total of 21 new infections of Coronavirus have been detected:

  • 15 in Merida
  • 2 in Progreso
