Chetumal Surpasses Cancun in COVID-19 Infections

Earlier in the newscast we told you about COVID patient number twenty-three, but across the northern border, Chetumal, has surpassed Cancun with the number of positive COVID-19 cases. On Friday, Chetumal registered thirty-one new cases of COVID-19 cases in twenty four hours, so that there are three hundred and ninety seven active cases of COVID-19 in the Othon P. Blanco area. In the Benito Juarez municipality, including tourist destinations such as Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Cozumel, has recorded a total of one thousand eight hundred and eighty four cases. In the entire state of Quintana Roo, a total of two thousand nine hundred and seventy confirmed cases. With losses of approximately one billion pesos, it is anticipated that some six hundred Chetumal businesses will close as a result of the coronavirus economic pandemic.
