Isla Mujeres News & Events on Facebook
Our Northern Zone of the state continues in Orange thru Sept. 5, as does the Southern Zone. There are decreases in all of our Zone's municipalities except Cozumel, with Isla Mujeres having the largest decrease in the state. Our Zone's Contagion Rate decreased again, to 0.86, which means each infected person is infecting 0.86 other people and the curve is declining. The vertical axis of the graphs indicates the average new cases daily and the horizontal axis shows the entire pandemic with the past 15 days highlighted in grey.
Monday....Isla Mujeres reports a total of 40 deaths from C-19 since the beginning of the pandemic, with 421 cases and 368 recuperated, officially. (Not all cases make it into the official statistics.) The Geoportal still has data from 8/20, which reported 11 active cases by colonia in Isla Mujeres as five in La Gloria, two in Salina Grande, and one each in Salinas, Downtown, 23 de Noviembre, and Meteorologico.
These graphs are from last Thursday's video.
