The port continues to register much fewer cases of Covid-19 than other cities such as Culiacán, which are not touristy
Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- Despite the fact that Mazatlán has 10 times more people for being a tourist, it registers much fewer cases due to Covid-19 than Culiacán and other municipalities, acknowledged the municipal president, Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres.
“The results are beginning to be seen, compare them with Culiacán, check with Culiacán and other municipalities and here we have 10 times more people than there,” he added.
Regarding the supposed ‘pull of the ears’ that he would give his officials for not doing their job well, he commented that yesterday he held a meeting with those involved and the results are beginning to be seen in the case of a drop in the infection rate.
