“I still would not make that recommendation (cancel the Carnival) and tell him ‘we are solving the Carnival issue more early’, we would have to examine it in due course, I say that you have to see it next weekend and I would not recommend that to the mayor, but I would tell him; “Together we are discussing the issue to make a decision where we all take responsibility” said Rocha Moya.

On the axis of infections by Covid-19, the state president acknowledged that there has been an increase in infected, but continued with the idea of ​​ruling out confinement for Sinaloa.

“I do not want to alarm the population, certainly the infections have multiplied, fortunately the cases are less serious, why? Because the majority of the population is vaccinated ”, he stated.


Rocha Moya celebrated that reinforcement applications are being carried out for the Sinaloans, also revealed that it will be this coming Monday when Sinaloa receives more vaccines for the population.

“Today began with the reinforcement for those aged 40 and over (…) Starting on Wednesday the teachers will be given the reinforcement, on Monday we get the Moderna vaccines, because some teachers said they did not want CanSino” he added
