NUEVO LEON – The minister of health of Nuevo Leon, Manuel de la O. Cavazos, said that if the number of infections, hospitalizations and deaths due to COVID-19 remains stable, in the next few days they could continue with the gradual reopening of some sectors of the local economy.

“We are not going to open the different establishments 100%. We are going in 30%, if it goes well we will increase to 50%, it has to be gradual,” said the official.

He explained that for now the number of infections is in a plateau phase, the problem is that when mobility increases, hospitalizations increase as well.
