However, Jalisco reports a total of 7,278 cases of COVID-19 in Puerto Vallarta since the beginning of the pandemic, and 14 new cases in the past 24-hours, twice the number of cases that the Federal Government reported for the area.
Cases in Puerto Vallarta are likely 5-times higher than what is reported. A lack of testing and the federal statistics not taking into consideration private hospitals and laboratories contribute to the underreporting of COVID-19 cases in Puerto Vallarta and nationally throughout Mexico.
