The test positive rate remains low
Three years after facing the COVID-19 pandemic, Jalisco has more than 2.8 million tests applied in laboratories authorized by the federal government to detect or rule out the disease, one of the most forceful actions to cut the chain of transmission of infections.
As of yesterday, March 12, the test positivity rate remains low, as does the number of hospital beds occupied by patients with this infection. Both indicators are important to measure the risk posed by the pandemic, and are now stable, having declined for several weeks.
Although the pandemic continues to be active and in order to continue reducing the number of active cases, the Ministry of Health of Jalisco (SSJ) is calling on the population to seek medical attention in the presence of respiratory symptoms, and to take protective measures to avoid infecting others.
