The state of the pandemic
This is the 18th week of reduction of the epidemic in Mexico, according to the Undersecretary of Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell . Overall, there are an estimated 18,199 active cases, 3,500 fewer than two weeks ago .
In Mexico, 25.6 million vaccines have been applied to a total of 17.3 million people , which is equivalent to 19% of the population over 18 years of age. In detail, there are 11.5 million people who have received their complete vaccination schedules and 5.8 million who have received one of two doses.
Seen this way, almost one in five people over the age of 18 is already vaccinated .
As for the vaccination of educational personnel, the only thing left to do is to finish the schemes in Chihuahua and Puebla. The most probable thing, said Undersecretary López-Gatell, is that before next Thursday 100% of the educational personnel of the whole country will have been vaccinated.
In total, 33,469,715 million vaccines have been received, of which 13.3 million are from Pfizer, six million from AstraZeneca, seven million from SinoVac, 2.4 million from Sputnik V and 4.6 million from CanSino.
