Four archaeological zones in the state of Guerrero were temporarily closed as part of a state measure aimed at containing the increases in the number of infections by Covid-19.

The sites that closed their doors due to the epidemiological change and at the instructions of Governor Héctor Astudillo Flores himself were La Organera-Xochipala, located in the municipality of Eduardo Neri; Tehuacalco, in Chilpancingo; Palma Sola, in Acapulco, and Soledad de Maciel-Xihuacan, in Petatlán.

The decision to take this measure was made jointly by the Secretariats of Culture at the federal and state levels, through the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) and the INAH Guerrero Center.

Guerrero breaks record of covid-19 infections

Again in Guerrero, the record of infected people was broken again, reaching 861 new infections of covid-19 in the last 24 hours.

In addition, 354 people have died from coronavirus in August, which gives an average of 32.1 deaths per day, the highest figure in the entire pandemic.

According to statistics from the state Health Secretariat, there are currently 4,092 active cases, with Chilpancingo being the city with the most infected people, with 1,291 cases; Zihuatanejo with 438 people; Acapulco with 431 cases and Ometepec with 227 infected.

Given the increase in infections in the municipality of Ometepec, which is located on the border between Guerrero and Oaxaca, a trailer was obtained that is a mobile hospital dedicated solely to treating covid cases, since the General Hospital of Ometepec is already saturated.

The idea is to attend to patients infected with covid in the mobile hospital given the saturation and demand that exists in that municipality.

In Acapulco and Chilpancingo, several hospitals have their covid beds saturated.

At this time in Guerrero there are 511 hospitalized covid-19 patients, of which 91 are intubated and their condition is critical, the rest, 420 their report is of “serious condition.”
