PUEBLA, #Pue. (apro) .- The government of #Puebla issued a decree in which it calls for a #Maximum #Risk #Alert to avoid contagion of covid-19, which includes the closure of non-essential activities, service in restaurants only to take away, restriction in hours of public and executive transportation, prohibition of ambulance and recommendation of confinement for 14 days.
The decree issued last night establishes that the new measures will be in force from this #Tuesday, #January 29 to 11, in the nine regions of the entity, after last weekend the coronavirus infections and the demand for daily hospitalization increased. #It reached the levels of #June and #July, when the entity was on high alert due to the health contingency.
The #Secretary of #Health reported that 653 new cases and 69 deaths were registered from #Friday to #Sunday. #In total, there are 1,253 active cases, of which 741 are hospitalized and 97 require assisted ventilation.
#Among the measures that will be taken as of this #Tuesday, the operation only of companies, businesses and organizations considered with essential activity stands out, activities that contribute to the basic functioning of society at 20% of its capacity.
#Restaurants and coffee shops, lunch boxes, cheap kitchens, torteras and taqueras will remain closed and will only continue to offer the sale of food prepared exclusively with home delivery, at the window or pick-up by car until 11 p.m., the decree clarifies.
#Regarding transport, it specifies that both the public service and the metrobs and the executive (#Didi, #Uber, #Cabify and taxis) are suspended, from 20:30 to 05:30, although transfers will be allowed to people in emergency situation, and medical and hospital assistance personnel, as well as people working in essential activities.
The co-responsible home security is also encouraged, remembering that with each unnecessary exit we contribute to increasing the rate of infections, he adds.
The government of #Puebla also asks the municipal governments to prohibit informal commercial activity, street vendors and street markets, from today until #January 11.
#This morning the #Puebla city council put up fences to restrict the access of people to the #Historical #Center of the city, in addition to setting up operations with grenadiers in the streets to prevent the installation of street vendors and street markets.
#Governor #Miguel #Barbosa justified these new measures by noting that, if activities and mobility are not restricted, it could lead to a collapse of the entity’s health system by #January.
