Puerto Vallarta has gone four months without hospitalizations from Covid-19, as announced by the director of the Eighth Sanitary Region of the Jalisco Ministry of Health, Jaime Álvarez Zayas.

And despite the fact that there was a rebound in Covid-19 cases in the state, there is already very little activity of the disease in the city, added the Health official.

“Right now we are at 10 percent or less and a very, very low number of tests. In these last 2 weeks IMSS 10, 12, 8, and Hospital Regional has already been 4 months without a patient hospitalized by Covid, and deaths, I think one was presented last month if I remember correctly,” he detailed.
