Ricardo Villanueva, rector of the UdeG explained that based on estimates, they found that the first days that Jaliscienses were asked to stay at home, about 80% did so, but for the following days only 40% of the population complied measure. The rector emphasized that "we must not lower our guard because we are going to put at risk the capacity of the hospital system."

Villanueva affirmed that although not all of them were isolated, in Jalisco the measure was effective, because while in the country there was an increase of 389% of cases, in Jalisco it was 196% of cases . The data presented details that for March 20, the country registered 203 cases and on March 29 there were 993 cases, while for Jalisco on March 20 there was a record of 28 cases and on March 29 it was of 83 cases.
