 TVisla Mujeres 

 A deceased indigent man was found by municipal police officers during their patrol of the Salina Grande walking path on Monday. The area was cordoned off and the appropriate authorities were contacted.

 La Tertulia 

Yesterday on Twitter, the state Secretary of Health explained that on the 10th of November, statewide, there was a decrease of 58 cases observed in the registration system. This was because an adjustment was made to the daily report after it was discovered that various cases had been uploaded due to a human error, following the completions of a review process that was requested from the ISSSTE on  November 6th.

  Noti Isla Mujeres

 Noti reports that islanders are requesting that the colonias receive nebulization because there are large numbers of mosquitoes.
