The week ended with a slight seven-day decline in new coronavirus infections, from 94 to 89.7 each day. The average daily number of deaths is basically unchanged, a little over 11 every 24 hours, data from the Yucatán health ministry indicates.

Another 10 COVID-19 patients were reported dead Saturday while 108 new infections were added to the caseload. Recoveries totaled 68 while the number of quarantines increased by 34 to reach 636 patients. Hospitalizations increase by one for a total of 203.

Fatalities included six men and four women ranging in age from 48 to 87.

In total, officials have counted 32,903 infections since the pandemic began in Yucatan last March. Deaths have reached 3,383.

Health officials are still vaccinating people over 60 who can prove they are residents of Motul, Valladolid and Conkal. Foreign residents have reported being turned away despite qualifying for the inoculation because their residency cards don’t include a home address.
