Currently classified as a ‘yellow’ zone in terms of COVID-19 contagion and cases, the state of Quintana Roo is making its way towards the green zone following recent progress in controlling transmission. Over the past two days, the state registered zero deaths and a decrease in new daily cases.
Governor Carlos Joaquín expands on the state’s recent decrease in contagion, indicating that COVID-19 related cases have subsided within the state. Joaquín identifies the last two days of zero deaths and low cases to be a huge success for Quintana Roo.
While the welcome news enables safer tourism in the state, the governor reminds citizens and visitors to continue to comply with COVID-19 guidelines and be cautious regarding hygiene and safety, as these low case numbers must be maintained and further decreased.
“The virus is still there, it is still complicated and this is not the time to raise alarm,” said Joaquín, warning that the relaxation in protocol would reproduce the number of infections.
In regards to the declining rate of cases on a day to day basis, Governor Joaquín states that with the continued use of health and safety protocols, the state could gradually enter the green zone within the upcoming weeks.
Joaquín further stated that this gradual transition to the green zone would mean resuming activities that are currently limited and reenabling the pre-pandemic reality in Quintana Roo.
On Monday, Dr. Ricardo Cortés Alcalá, Director of Health Promotion for Mexico reported that for the first time since the pandemic, the country has no states of high risk or contagion.
He also added that Mexico currently has three states that classify as ‘green’ and Quintana Roo is predicted to be the next addition to the list in the near future.
