Mexico City reopening will be based on hospital occupation

The Head of Government, Claudia Sheinbaum, explained this Wednesday that in Mexico City the epidemiological traffic light for the economic reopening will be based mainly on hospital occupation. The color change will also have to do with the trend of hospital capacity, whether it is declining or growing.

At a press conference, she added that it will work on a daily basis, so citizens should always be vigilant about the information that will be updated day by day. “And these have to be trends of at least two weeks according to experts”. She explained that this will remain in red “if the number of COVID beds continues to increase for Mexico City and also with the Valley of Mexico and if we have occupancy of more than 65 percent.”

It will change to orange if hospital occupancy is less than 65 percent and we have been trending down for two weeks. It will be in yellow when hospital occupancy is less than 50 percent and we have a two-week downward trend. The traffic light will change to green when the occupation is less than 50 percent and we have been with this occupation trend for at least a month. This is the CDMX plan.

Health measures, indicated Sheinbaum, must be followed at all stages of the traffic light: -Use of mouth masks in public transport and crowded places. -Wash your hands frequently and use antibacterial gel. -Keep the healthy distance; (do not shake hands and / or kiss, and keep 1.5 meters of distance between people). – Label sneeze. -Cleaning workspaces and at home. -Constant disinfection of surfaces with high levels of contact. Currently, in the Metropolitan Area of the Valley of Mexico, there are 6,320 people hospitalized by COVID-19, of which 4,867 are hospitalized in general care and the rest are on oxygen ventilators.

In CDMX there are 15,283 confirmed cases of the disease and 1,452 deaths, according to data reported this Wednesday by the head of government.
