Jalisco manages to flatten the coronavirus contagion curve: UdeG


The rector general Ricardo Villanueva insists that it is necessary to close the air bridges with cities that face more serious situations of the pandemic

Based on the numbers of confirmed cases in the epidemiological report of COVID-19 of the federal Health Secretariat, the Health Situation Room of the University of Guadalajara (UdeG) stated that Jalisco has managed to flatten the contagion curve and endorsed the new sampling model of the state government.

The rector of the UdeG, Ricardo Villanueva Lomelí, affirmed that the proposal to carry out tests in suspicious cases, will contribute to improving the strategy to combat the disease and will provide data "more precise and not just a documented case and 8.34 not."

The house of studies had announced a follow-up of its predictive model on April 29, but they advanced it nine days for "a better analysis of the strategy" and to provide data near the change of measurement in people suspected of being infected with COVID-19, said the rector.

In the presentation of figures, it was exposed that Jalisco is in the 14th place in the country in total cases for every 100,000 inhabitants , after being several days in second place, in addition the entity is in the 6th place of imported cases per 100 thousand inhabitants.

Villanueva reiterated the call to avoid more imported cases: "It has been a requirement of this table, of the University and of the State Government itself, that air flows with cities that have sanitary fences be stopped. It is something that has not been achieved But I would insist that the federal government should rethink the issue of international traveler flows because it continues to be a source of contagion. "

"Jalisco passes the 17th place in community contagions. This data as having suspended classes and massive events, we reached the 17th place, thanks to the fact that the citizens have helped to contain this, it has been worth this month of anticipations," he specified.

The UdeG Health Situation Room announced that imported cases of COVID-19 represent 51% of the total and community cases 49%, which means maintaining the contagion curve with lesser ancestry.

"This tells us why we are flattening the curve, because we are not catching it here, infections continued to be from outside and thanks to isolation, our curve did not continue to grow ," he said.

The predictive model of the house of studies estimated that from 40% of people who were isolated on March 28, it went to 54% on April 9, which has resulted in 139 people sick with COVID-19, although the authorities They regretted that citizens have gone on a trip or caused concentrations in markets in the last week.

Despite showing positive data, the university authorities considered it premature to ensure a date to end social isolation , but they argued that the population should be kept at home and the number of population that should undergo rapid tests to reduce infections should be increased.
