 Twenty six people have been treated for decompression since November of last year, when the hyperbaric chamber was reactivated. Services were available for various cooperatives including Macax, Justicia Social, Isla Blanca, Patria & Progreso, and Caribe. In addition to providing treatment for decompression, it has been used to treat patients with wounds known as 'diabetic foot', and for chemotherapy in a case of testicular cancer, with improved results. Oxygen therapy is beneficial to treat the following conditions: gas gangrene, acoustic trauma & sudden deafness, necrotizing infections of subcutaneous, fascia, or muscular tissue, gastric-duodenal ulcers that are resistant to treatments, and diabetic neuero-infection of the foot, as well as recompression for injured divers.

    The Port of Isla Mujeres remains closed for the second day for navigation by vessels under 40 feet in length, due to the entry of cold front #55, and strong winds which began Thursday night. It is estimated that more than 300 boats are affected, and the Harbor Master, Ismael Gonzalez Gil, says this may possibly continue in upcoming days. Despite high winds and gusts exceeding 40 km/hr. the vehicle ferry "Sergio Gracia Aguilar" continues to operate, while the second vehicle ferry is out of service for maintenance. The Harbor Master said if the winds increase some crossings of the car ferry may be suspended, depending on the company.

    Por Carlos Gasca.- Por segundo día continúan suspendidas las actividades.

    There are plans to make improvements and do maintenance at the Municipal Jail, which will benefit the prisoners. During that time the prisoners will be transferred, with assistance from the Navy. The families are being informed, and are expressing concerns that their family members will be at greater risk, and frequent visits will be more difficult. The police chief, Joaquin Poot Acosta, said the date has not yet been set for the transfer and gave reassurances that the families will be notified, and that the prisoners will be promptly returned when the remodeling is complete.

Strong winds cause change in open water route

Obliga fuerte viento a cambiar ruta en aguas abiertas

  • Written by Diario Respuesta Jesus Molina
  • Category: Isla Mujeres
Due to high winds on Saturday morning, the route for the traditional open water swim between Isla Mujeres and Cancun was altered. This competition for children and youths has taken place for nine years, over an official route of  9.5 kilometers between Playa Caracol (on the mainland) and Playa Lancheros on Isla Mujeres, and to boats anchored three miles from the island. The organizing committee changed the route into the Bay of Isla Mujeres, over a distance of six kilometers, due to the strong winds.
Route: From Playa Caracol to Playa Lancheros

Tourists enjoyed the beach after midday
Pasado el mediodía el turismo disfrutó la playa. [+] Ver mas
The Ultramar ferry from the Cancun hotel zone did not have its usual amount of over 100 tourists, but brought about half that many. The catamarans & trimarans were also bringing people from the hotel zone, and there were the usual ferries from Puerto Juarez and Punta Sam. People were observed shopping downtown, and the Transit police kept the malecon and street clear, especially on the sea side between the port and gas station, an area about 300 meters long. The weather caused some drifting sand effects, and people were observed enjoying North Beach. In the evening the wind was already switching from the north east to the east, and the Weather Channel indicated it should be in the southeast by sunrise on Sunday.

Resolving issues with whale shark licensees
Resuelven asunto de permisionarios del tiburón ballena[+] Ver mas
 There has been some resolution of the conflict with the Wildlife Department who have agreed to assign permits to others, rather than having them held by a group of about 15 entrepreneurs, according to information collected by Por Esto.  Not everyone is pleased with this resolution. The whale shark licensees are expected to receive their permits on Monday. The president of the Asociación de Permisionarios para el Avistamiento del Tiburón Ballena, Sergio Barros Peña, confirmed that each person may only have one permit. . The load capacity of the Whale Shark Bisopshere Reserve is 160 boats between Isla Mujeres and Lazaro Cardenas (Holbox), but last season there were over 200 boats. There are concerns about some 50 permits that "correspond" to Isla Mujeres, but at this time no more information is available, and there is no official confirmations of information regarding these changes.
