Dr. Jaime Álvarez Zayas, director of the Eighth Health Region, reported that since last week COVID-19 tests have increased in the different health institutions of Puerto Vallarta, from 33 to 152 positive antigen results.
He commented that cases continue to increase, which are a reflection of the December festivities.
Even the governor himself announced that there are 217 active cases in the city and it is Puerto Vallarta that leads the first place in the increase in infections.
On the other hand, the doctor stressed that there will be more people going to the IMSS or ISSSTE due to the issue of disabilities, so long lines could be seen in their COVID-19 areas.
It is worth mentioning that in the IMSS clinic 170 there is already more influx of people going to take the tests. This media asked the personnel who work in the institution, who mentioned that the unit is not exceeded, as happened last July.
Even the IMSS has expanded its areas to serve more people, treating 10 doctors in the morning and 10 at night.
At the Remance Health Center, which belongs to the Jalisco Health Secretariat, the influx of patients has also increased and the trend will continue.
