Isla Mujeres Daily News & Events Wednesday, September 23

  Here's the webcam LINK, which also has time lapse of the past 24 hours.

Today the municipality of Isla Mujeres reports another case of C-19 for a total of 194 with 13 deaths and 140 recovered. 

On the state geoportal, the active cases by colonia for 9/22 are reported as:  La Gloria-8, Salina Chica-3, Salina Grande-3, Ampl la Gloria-2, Aeropuerto-1, Canotal-1, and none on the mainland. 

On the national map for 9.22, the municipality reports 6 suspicious and  81 negatives (with 193 confirmed and 13 deaths)


#1 & #2 are "Incidence Rates" which is the number of cases averaged per 10,000 residents. This allows comparisons between municipalities like ours with only ~21k residents and others who have hundreds of thousands. The other six municipalities have a combined population of ~1.75 million people. We're the second least populous in our Northern Zone of the state, behind Puerto Morelos, but their Incidence Rate statistics are combined with BJ/Cancun's. Since our population is low, our Incidence Rate is more subject to fluctuation because it only takes a couple cases to raise it a whole point.
We're the worst in the state again this week at 9.23. Holbox (LC) improved from 5.87 to 3.67. Most of the Northern Zone remained under 2 again: it's Cancun (BJ) & Puerto Morelos-1.22, Cozumel-1.39, Solidaridad (PDC)-1.48, and Tulum-2.45.

#3 is the "New Cases Each Month". We've had 38 so far this month (a rate of 1.73/day), so the projected total for September is 52 cases.

#4 is the "Average Cases per Week" (by month). This is calculated from each month's daily average times seven.

The state of Quintana Roo has two metropolitan zones, with the first made up of the municipalities of Benito Juarez and Isla Mujeres. (The second is the state capital of Chetumal). Isla Mujeres citizens are invited to participate in the selection of the ′′Metropolitan Consultative Council of the Metropolitan Area of Cancún", which also includes our municipality.

On the eastern edge of Playa Norte, across from Mia hotel (in front of Guru bar) the beach has eroded away where sand was added by the City last year.  At that time, no sand was dredged, it was just relocated from a nearby bank of sand that had formed (near Na Balam). (photo)   LIN

Turtles continue nesting in September. They nest along the eastern beaches. Tortugranja staff and volunteers gather the eggs and incubate them in the sand in a pen outside the facility. Three species nest annually in Isla Mujeres, Greens, Loggerheads, and Hawksbills.

Swimming with the whale sharks ends Sept. 17 They congregate and feed on a 'buffet' of plankton and fish eggs from a type of tuna. Rays are also attracted to the feeding areas.  Photo by Tony Garcia
