I know it has been a very complex and exhausting year, but we have municipalities with high risk and now that there is a light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine, it is worth all the trouble in the world to resist and take care of ourselves to end this year with our loved ones, to distance, but be alive,” he published.
On December 9, Jalisco registered 937 patients hospitalized for the new coronavirus, which exceeded the peak registered in July.
