The municipality of San Miguel de Allende reports 105 active cases of Covid-19, with 695 confirmed cases, 590 recovered cases, and 36 deaths.  Dr. Jorge Vidargas Rojas, director of


Sanitary Jurisdiction II, explained that the majority of people infected with Covid-19 in the municipality are workers, housewives, and students. He urges everyone to pay attention and follow the protocols in the related areas. Because of an exponential increase in cases in San Miguel, Mayor Luis Alberto Villareal urged city residents and establishments to follow all the health protocols in order to avoid a new mandatory lockdown. 


Currently, Chihuahua is the only state that has gone back to lockdown after registering a spike in cases. The same has happened in countries such as Spain, the United States and France, where lockdowns were once again implemented after detecting spiked infection rates.
