Sanitary measures have helped to prevent COVID-19 cases from being registered in Chapala, authorities say
The sanitary filters will continue in the territorial limits of the municipality
A few nuns did not care that the Chapala boardwalk will be closed to the public; they decided to take a walk.
Manuel Jacobo (Chapala, Jal).- As of the first week of May, the municipality of Chapala had registered no cases of SARS-CoV-2 virus, despite the fact that 42 cases have already been counted in the other municipalities of Health Region IV. According to the authorities, the containment of the pandemic has been achieved thanks to the health check roadblocks (filters) placed at the territorial limits of the municipality. Mayor Moisés Alejandro Anaya Aguilar estimates that 3,200 motorists were prevented from entering the municipality of Chapala during the long Labor Day weekend and Cinco de Mayo celebration of the Battle of Puebla.
As of May 6, 2020, official data showed that the municipality of Chapala has registered no positive cases of Covid-19, while 16 suspected cases tested negative and there were six suspected cases whose results have not yet been reported. This is due, officials feel, to strong enforcement of sanitary measures. During the last week of April alone, four businesses were closed in the municipality for repeated offenses against sanitary measures, 54 non-essential businesses were closed and 23 non-municipality merchants were removed.
Continuing the sanitation measures, the municipality suspended the festivities for the commemoration of the Battle of Puebla, May 5, although the ban on the sale of alcohol products was lifted and the people of Chapa are now able to buy beer and tequila in the authorized stores.
With regard to the state of Jalisco, there are 17 municipalities that have registered positive cases of Covid-19, and 37 deaths had been recorded as of May 5. The totals for deaths, by county, are: Guadalajara (9), Zapopan (4), Tomatlán (2), El Grullo (1), Tonalá (2), Acatic (1), Puerto Vallarta (6), Tequila (1), Tecolotlán (1) , Tlajomulco (2), Ocotlán (2), Colotlán (1), La Barca (1), Zapotlán del Rey (1), San Julián (1), Tlaquepaque (1) and El Salto (1).
