Isla Mujeres News & Events on Facebook
March 14, the municipality of Isla Mujeres continued to report a total
of 276 cases, 25 deaths and 231 recovered.
The state geoportal still has the data for March 12 which continued to report six active cases located as Meteorologcio-3, Salina Grande-1, Amp la Gloria-1, and colonia 006-1. It has been reporting that since February 10th, so it's probably outdated.
Location of the office of Sport & Physical Culture.
The Director of the municipal DIF social service agency, Yusely Lopez Tec said the newborn who was found abandoned in a doorway on March 10th was transferred to a hospital in Cancun on Friday to receive a blood culture test that isn't available on the island. The infant was transported with support of medical personnel from the Community Hospital and paramedics, and she was accompanied by staff with the Procuraduría de la Defensa del Menor y la Familia, Child Protection agency.
Ms Lopez Tec said it is important to do this study and others while taking advantage of her being in a better place to be cared for and recover from the infection that was shown in her tests. At the time a tourist couple found the newborn, she was wrapped in a blanket, abandoned on the welcome mat of home, still with the placenta, blood, and dirt. The director said that despite the infection, she is stable, and in the custody of the state DIF who will transfer her when her health is recovered, to the home-institution in Chetumal where they will be in charge of caring for her and the adoption process.
The official spoke about the many couples interested in adopting who have not had the joy of having children of their own, noting that it is necessary to be sure they meet the requirements and indicate that they would give their unconditional love, which this little girl or any other child deserves.

Public events have been suspended due to C-19. Some holidays have featured online competitions and events.
On Saturday, Feb 27 the first preseason baseball game was
scheduled at 1p. Pre-Covid 19, games were on Sundays starting at 1p (with
pregame activities at 12-12:30 sometimes), at the Pescador field in
front of Chedrui, when they were scheduled.
5th: When public events were held, there was an annual ceremony
commemorating the arrival of Francisco Hernandez Cordoba in
1517, who is credited with discovering the Yucatan and what is now
Mexico, after landing on Isla Mujeres. This will presumably be conducted
with a limited number of officials (without inviting the public) or
virtually. The expedition of 110 men and 3
boats sailed from Cuba and and around the coast of the Yucatan
Peninsula, battling with
the Maya, until all but one were injured, and over 50 died. The
uninjured fellow went missing when they visited Florida, and Hernandez
Cordoba died after returning to Cuba.
