The Ministry of Health (Ssa) reported that Mexico accumulates 101,373 deaths from Covid-19, 550 more than last Friday, as well as 1 million 32 thousand 688 infections, an increase of 6,719 compared to the previous day.
José Luis Alomía, director of Epidemiology, reported that 41,480 people make up the epidemic, that is, they were infected in the last 14 days and can still transmit the virus.
Regarding hospital occupancy, he explained that it is 37% for general beds and 30% with a mechanical ventilator. “Only six entities have exceeded the 50% barrier; however, this indicator is monitored every day ”, he stated.
He reported that the Ssa has detected 2,746 probable outbreaks of Covid-19: “Hidalgo has 733; Querétaro, 420, and Chihuahua, 225 “, and that 52 have been identified in the prisons.
“Again, Hidalgo leads the list with nine outbreaks, followed by Veracruz and San Luis Potosí, with five each.”
Regarding Pfizer’s vaccine against Covid-19, which requires a deep-freezing system, he mentioned that when there are doses that can already be applied in society, the government must analyze the operational viability of each of them; however, he reiterated that no country has such a network.
“No country has a network of these characteristics, not even the United States, which is where it is produced. In Mexico it would represent an important challenge, but we have committed a series of vaccines and, as information becomes known, decisions can be made on which ones can be incorporated into a vaccination program for Covid-19, “he explained.
He added that the vaccines to which Mexico is currently assigned, either with pre-purchase contracts or through the Covax initiative, the vast majority require only a cold network, which the country does have: “Basically this refrigerator maintains the vaccine between 4 and 8 degrees, it is a normal refrigerator. Pfizer requires deep-freezing processes to ensure vaccine efficacy.
“If these temperatures are not ensured, it happens that the vaccine is inactivated and stops having an effect on the person,” he reiterated.
Finally, he highlighted that the fatality from Covid-19 in Mexico has been decreasing, while at the peak of the epidemic, the fatality was almost 10% and that in recent weeks this indicator is 3.3%.
“Since the death of the first person and the last ones who have died, the fatality rate is below 10% (…) It is important to specify that this measurement is for the entire temporality of the epidemic in Mexico. The values of the last weeks are 3.3% ”.
