Yesterday.... Our municipality reports a new case of C-19 for a total of 224, with 20 deaths and 188 recovered. The Growth Rate for the Northern Zone has decreased to an all-time low of 0.16.
The Northern Zone consists of six other municipalities, in addition to Isla Mujeres. Most of the state's population is in the Northern Zone, and nearly 70% of the cases. Our municipality accounts for only 1.6% of the state's cases and 2.3% of those in the Northern Zone, where we are the second least populous municipality (behind Puerto Morelos).
Yesterday... Isla Mujeres commemorated the CXCV / 195th anniversary of Naval Day--“Día de la Armada de México” at the local Naval base which serves the 5th Naval Region of Mexico. A plaque was unveiled at the Naval Hospital giving recognition to the personnel who work in the Naval hospitals and clinics fighting the C-19 pandemic. The ceremony recognized this memorable date, Nov 23rd, when the newly integrated Mexican Navy--Marina de Guerra Mexicana effected the surrender of Spanish troops who resisted the recognition of Mexican Independence.
Today, November 24, is the 118th anniversary of the creation of the Federal Territory of Quintana Roo. The Territory was named for a well-known lawyer born in Merida who supported Mexico's fight for independence, with his wife Leona Vicario. She was a very prominent figure in the War for Independence who was named "Distinguished and Beloved Mother of the Homeland" (Benemerita y Dulcisima Madre de la Patria). Q Roo is the youngest state in Mexico, receiving statehood in 1974.
