As of last Saturday (June 13th), Puerto Peñasco reached a total of 13 confirmed Covid-19 cases. This comes as Sonora itself was categorized for a second week in a row at the “red” maximum health risk level on the nation’s “risk alert stoplight.”
Sonora Health Secretary Enrique Clausen Iberri insisted the challenge now is for Sonora to change from red to orange on the federal health alert, which will only be possible with the commitment of the community, State government, health sector, and City administrations.
Puerto Peñasco has reported 13 confirmed cases of coronavirus since April 22nd, with one death, 11 recoveries and 1 active case, while nearby Sonoyta has had 27 confirmed cases, and two deaths. From March 16th – June 15th, Sonora has reported 5062 cases and 432 deaths.
