The quarantine extended; on Monday students begin virtual classes
The federal government announces May 30 as a new date; meanwhile, in Jalisco, studies will resume online
If compliance with the measures of social isolation and healthy distance is maintained in the country, the end of the COVID -19 pandemic could be announced on June 25.
Meanwhile, the quarantine period will be extended until May 30; that is, one month more than originally planned by the federal government.
However, the Undersecretary for Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell, explained that in the municipalities with the least transmission of the virus, the strategy will be in force until May 17.
In Jalisco the classes will continue their course in the virtual modality. Starting the following Monday, all students at the basic, upper secondary and higher levels will resume their studies in this way.
The head of the Jalisco Ministry of Education (SEJ), Juan Carlos Flores Miramontes, assured that regardless of the pandemic, "the school year is assured" in the State.
For his part, the rector of the University of Guadalajara (UdeG), Ricardo Villanueva, recalled that online classes will also resume on Monday at the study house.
He noted that the entrance exam for the 2020-B calendar will be delayed by three months.
The higher education test (scheduled for May 23) will be applied until August 10, and for upper secondary (May 30 and June 6) it will be done on 12.
The admission report will be published on September 2 and the start of classes will be on the 7th of that month.
The National Guard monitors clinics
This week, National Guard (GN) personnel began protecting the clinics of the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) in the country, in order to preserve the safety of hospitals, such as the Regional General Hospital 45 (Ayala) and the Western Medical Center in Jalisco.
According to the federal Secretary of Health, the elements are entrusted with reinforcing surveillance at the main doors for pedestrian and vehicle access, emergency areas, and the main entrances of medical units.
In total, there will be 1,600 federal officials who will protect the 184 IMSS hospitals where COVID-19 patients will be treated.
