Puerto Vallarta sees 30% increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations

Puerto Vallarta's interim mayor, Jorge Antonio Quintero Alvarado, announced a 30% increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations in the city over the past few weeks.

“We have had a rebound in hospitalization cases in an increase of 30% in recent weeks, we are making progress and it is necessary to continue respecting the healthy distance, continue to use face masks and continue to be careful since the issue has hit us hard and I think that if the measures are relaxed we will be paying the consequences,” Alvarado said during the city council meeting on Wednesday.
