The corresponding tests and protocols are being carried out onboard the cruise ship and if any of the passengers wanted to descend, they would first have to confirm that they are not infected with the results of an antigen test, highlighted Jaime Álvarez Zayas, director of the Eighth Health Region of the Jalisco Health Secretariat based in Puerto Vallarta.

With this cruise, there are two cruises that arrived in Puerto Vallarta with personnel infected with Covid 19 in less than a week, so the biosafety protocols continue and are being redoubled by the authorities.

Jalisco is expecting a 400% increase in COVID-19 infections during the month of January due to holiday vacations in December and no travel restrictions.
