Daily coronavirus infections dropped by over 100 while deaths remained in the teens, Yucatan health officials said Sunday.

The SSY counted 127 new cases and 16 deaths while 35 patients recovered. Hospitalizations were down by 10, continuing an almost steady decline that began Aug. 19. New cases have been as high as 230 and as low as 102 in the past seven days.

An increasing share of the 1,133 current patients are recuperating under home quarantine while 366 are under hospital care, said Dra. Patricia Muñoz Miranda, leader of the Program against Respiratory Diseases of Yucatán.

New cases included 88 in Merida, seven in Tizimín, six in Valladolid, five in Ticul, four in Tekax, two in Peto, Sacalum, Tekom and Tinum; and one in Akil, Chacsinkín, Chichimilá, Dzán, Hunucmá, Kanasín, Progreso, Sudzal and Umán.

Fatalities ranged in age from 36 to 90.

Since the crisis came to Yucatan, 1,980 have died out of 14,832 infected patients.
