Mayor rules out new confinement in Mazatlán, but measures will be reinforced


The Municipal President assured that although he has an analysis laboratory, he has not been tested for COVID-19 because he feels good

Mazatlan Sinaloa. – As a preventive action against the rebound in active cases of the SARS-COV-2 virus in Mazatlán, Mayor Luis Guillermo Benítez Torres ordered the capacity to be reduced in stadiums, bars, restaurants, nightclubs and in all businesses in general to 60 percent.

Above all, because the contagion curve in the last two days has risen exponentially in the municipality and that is very worrying for the authority, said the municipality.

And despite all this, thanks to the vaccination against COVID, the mortality rate as a result of this virus is minimal and that is good, he said.

“Yes, it is very worrying, it is very worrying. Look, I am not going to deceive you, there is no different formula, but we are more demanding every moment and today the group of Officials meets and I have already authorized to lower the level capacity of all businesses to 60 percent, “he said.

The Municipal President rules out a new confinement in Mazatlán. What yes, is that they will be reinforced and they will be more strict in the sanitary protocols .

He even clarified that he has not undergone any rapid test to detect COVID-19 because he feels in good health and has not had any symptoms.

“I who have a laboratory dedicated me to that and I have not done tests because I feel physically very well, if I felt with temperature or body cut, I would have already had it done at that time, but while it is not necessary and you have to learn to live quiet”

Just taking care of yourself, mayor?

“Sure, that’s why I wear face masks, that’s why I’m continually cleaning my hands, taking the necessary care,” he commented.

In this vein, he invited the population not to panic or be alarmed by the increase in active cases of COVID, rather, he said, it is important to always wear a mask and constantly wash your hands.

On the issue of Carnival, he insisted that it has not been canceled because everything will depend on how the pandemic behaves and on the cases that exist on those dates in the city.
