Jalisco airports suspend flights from countries with Covid-19


Jalisco— The Governor of Jalisco, Enrique Alfaro, reported the first death in the state from coronavirus. This is a 55-year-old man with diabetes.

"He was 55 years old, had diabetes and obesity and as this case is in Social Security, we hope that his authorities can give more information. The only case already confirmed with the presence of the coronavirus, "the president said in a message to the media.

The death means the third nationwide by Covid-19.

The governor reported that there are 45 confirmed cases in Jalisco, 41 with symptoms and 4 asymptomatic. There are only two people hospitalized, one in a private hospital and the other in ISSSTE facilities.

Another important element in the evolution of the pandemic in Jalisco is the first positive case outside the state capital. “We already have the first case outside the Guadalajara metropolitan area. A young man from Seattle, in Cuautla ”.

As part of the Jalisco Covid-19 Plan to counter the Covid-19 epidemic, Alfaro announced the closure of flights to the airports of Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta to countries and states that have decreed a sanitary fence, and massive tests.

"Today flights from places with sanitary fences are suspended. The Airport Group has powers to do this ”.

Alfaro clarified that flights with cargo and merchandise are not included in the measure.
