The authorities are preparing with the health protocols, but as long as the number of infections does not decrease, they will not be opened
Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- The municipal Mayor of Mazatlán, Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres, announced that for the reopening of sports stadiums there is already a defined protocol, however, as long as the number of infections does not decrease, the stadiums will not open.
“We already have a defined protocol, but we are polishing it because we do not want it to get out of hand and while the pandemic is like this in Mazatlan, we are not going to open them,” he said.
Benítez Torres indicated that in this sense Mazatlán is autonomous, but reiterated that as long as the pandemic does not “subside”, the opening of both baseball and soccer stadiums will not be allowed.
“That was the commitment with the gyms, with the event halls, and once we reached the goal that was, I do not remember if 18 degrees, all those who comply are opening. Today despite those elevations (of contagions ), we are still at 18 degrees Covid, because it is not the same, he explained so that it is very clear to all of us, firstly the lag in reporting those who are positive and secondly, the lag in reporting those who have already healed and the difference between some and others because it impacts the number, “he explained.
He explained that in order to restart sports activity in stadiums, the Covid traffic light would have to be at 15 or 14 degrees, so nothing is safe. “Everything will depend on the behavior of the pandemic,” he concluded.
