Isla Mujeres Daily News & Events Friday, November 6

6:30a  Tropical Depression Eta is out over the Caribbean Sea and expected to become a Tropical Storm later today. During the next couple of days, conditions should allow for Eta to gradually intensify and increase in size as it moves toward Cuba & Florida, but rapid intensification seems unlikely, given its broad structure. --NHC
The four-day CONAGUA forecast indicates rain & wind today, but we are outside the intense rain areas (darker circles), and it predicts wind tomorrow (purple squigglies).


Today Isla Mujeres continues to report a total of 222 cases of C-19 with 20 deaths and 187 recovered.
>>For 11/6, the state geoportal continues to report 1 active case by colonia in Salina Chica.
>>On the national map for 11/5, the municipality reports 152 suspicious and 104 negatives.
!!>>We've only had one case this week, for the second week in a row. We've only had ten cases in the past four weeks, which is an average of 2.5 weekly. This is similar to the first dozen weeks when the average was 2.25/wk. And a huge improvement compared to the worst eight weeks in July-August when the average rose to nearly 16 cases weekly.
>>The *Asterisk on Week 27 is because the way cases are reported changed that week, causing an overnight spike of cases that didn't occur in the previous 24 hours. Cases now count as "positive" who have not had a positive lab result, but have symptoms of C-19 and have been in contact with a patient with a positive lab test.
>>Last evening the Governor announced that our Northern Zone remains in Yellow for Monday thru Friday, Nov. 9-15. He said our Zone's Contagion Rate remains at nearly 0.99, with 1 being the limit between Yellow and Orange status. He explained that a Contagion Rate of 1 means one person with C-19 infects one other person. The next update will be on Thurs. Nov. 12, for Mon-Sun, Nov 16-22. Note--There are 7 municipalities in the Northern Zone, and we are one of the smaller ones, population-wise.

Turtles continue hatching out at the Tortugranja in November

The mamas nest along the eastern beaches from May thru October. 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.  Photos of nest hatching out at MaraVilla Caribe Bed & Beach, that was missed by the Tortugranja patrols, by Bruce.
