National Sana Distancia Day ends on May 30, although there will still be restrictions, confirms López-Gatell

This will allow the release of activities in some areas with low COVID-19 infection; however, some cities and states will maintain restrictions. Hugo López-Gatell, Undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, announced on Tuesday that the National Sana Distancia Day, started on March 23, will end on May 30, although the prevention measures against the coronavirus will persist . “We are not going to return to pre-epidemic conditions. We are going to return at the end of the National Day of Healthy Distance, which will be next May 30, ”said the doctor in Epidemiology. “We will return to particular conditions, where we must continue with strict health safety prevention measures,” he continued. The federal official assured that, although with the end of that day the national measures will end and activities will begin again in places where there has been little transmission of the virus, throughout the country strict standards of health safety prevention must continue. “The fundamental change is that the national measures, which implies the journey, come to an end, but given the heterogeneity of transmission, cities, states, metropolises and high transmission areas, these places will not be able to relax the confinement measures and should apply them locally ”, he mentioned. “We remove the national measures, which allows us to liberate the territory and the population that is in areas of very low transmission,” he explained. The Ministry of Health reported this Tuesday that 3,926 people have died from the new SARS-COV-2 coronavirus in Mexico. In addition, the confirmed cases amounted to 38,342, of which 8,817 are active -that is, they presented symptoms of the virus in the last 14 days-, reported José Luis Alomía, General Director of Epidemiology. Meanwhile, the cumulative suspected cases of COVID-19 disease increased to 22,980.
