With this data, Mexico ranks 16th in the world in the number of confirmed infections and fifth in the number of deaths due to this cause, only behind the United States, Brazil, India and Russia, according to the Johns Hopkins University count. YELLOW LIGHT On the other hand, Mexico's Ministry of Health released the epidemiological risk traffic light, where Jalisco returns to yellow, due to the drop in the number of Covid-19 cases. With 16 states in green and 16 in yellow, this Monday the Covid-19 Epidemic Risk Stoplight comes into effect, which will be in effect until March 6, informed the Ministry of Health. Thus, for the next two weeks, the country will have 16 states in green color in the epidemic risk traffic light and 16 states in yellow, among them Jalisco. This will remain in effect from Monday, February 21 to Sunday, March 6. None of the states will be red (maximum risk of contagion) or orange (high risk). The yellow traffic light means that there is still a medium risk of virus infection and green is low risk.
