Local COVID-19 Stats Increase:

 123 Nuevos Casos Positivos y 37 Muertes Por COVID-19 en 24 Horas en BC
Por, Ariel Saucedo

"The number of deaths and infections in Baja California by COVID-19 continues to rise, registering 37 deaths and 123 new positive cases in the last 24 hours, reported the Secretary of Health in the State, Alonso Pérez Rico, on the morning of this Wednesday 22 April in the video conference of Governor Jaime Bonilla Valdez.

As “a heavy day,” Pérez Rico described the last hours in Baja California, in which the number of positives for COVID-19 reached 975, more than 100 compared to the previous day. He explained that this is because the results of the tests that had been sent to the La Raza Epidemiology Laboratory in Mexico City, and that they had not been released, arrived.

The total of tests that have been applied in Baja California until April 20 are two thousand 666, of which one thousand 205 have given negative, 975 gave positive and 486 are pending, of these 405 correspond to the IMSS, 65 to the Secretariat of Health, 11 from ISSSTE and 1 to private hospitals.

Of the 133 people who have died since March 31, there are 86 men and 47 women, the majority of cases being people over 65 years of age. By municipality, in Tijuana 86 COVID-19 patients have died, Mexicali has 36, Tecate and Ensenada with four deaths, Playas de Rosarito has two and San Quintín one death from this disease; having an average of three deaths per day at the state level.
As for the converted hospitals of the Ministry of Health, there is a 47.6 percent occupation with 252 beds available; There are 47 fans available, 23 in Mexicali, 16 in Ensenada and only 8 in Tijuana, so they will be sending ventilators from Mexicali to Tijuana if necessary.

The IMSS COVID centers in Mexicali, Tijuana, Ensenada and San Quintín, have an occupation of 55.92 percent; Of the 608 beds in the state, 268 are available. As for the fans, they have 24, of which there are only two in the Regional Hospital number 1 in Tijuana.

“In Tijuana, both in the General Hospital and in the IMSS, for the two COVID hospitals we have 10 ventilators. If for example, out of every 10 patients discharged, 12 arrive, and of those at least one requires a ventilator, we are gaining patients every day, we are using ventilators; the reality of things is that we are already going to have to move fans from Mexicali and Ensenada to Tijuana, in what reaches us over 60 fans projected for this week, "said the head of the Ministry of Health.

He stressed that fans are still not needed, however, there is an upward trend if people who continue to go outside and do not respect preventive measures, so it is vital that citizens continue at home, because of increasing the number of patients will not reach respirators.

 If the increase in patients continues, starting this Saturday, April 25, the IMSS could have a fan deficit, but supposedly the Secretariat would be supporting the missing teams.

At the end of the videoconference, Pérez Rico reported that this morning he had communication with the general director of the IMSS, Zoé Robledo, to coordinate with the samples that the IMSS is applying in Baja California and to have results in less time, in addition to making a IMSS auxiliary hospital unit at the Baja Center Convention Center in Playas de Rosarito with the capacity of 200 beds, which is projected to be ready in three weeks."

 Okay, the Convention Center is just down the road, so if it is outfitted to be a Hospital, more traffic down that way, no traffic lights, be careful. BTW, thanks to Governor Milan for that building.

Also, the old  free road into Ensenada has been officially blocked off so that people will go through the El Sauzal checkpoint - this doesn't mean Ensenada has been blocked off, but you will be checked going in .
