To stop the coronavirus, at least six out of every 10 should stay at home: UdeG


To contain the spread of the COVID-19 in Jalisco claim that at least six out of every 10 jaliscienses remain at home during the period of isolation.

The University of Guadalajara (UdeG) reported that it is vital to abide by the extent to which the cases are stable and the hospital care did not collapse.

The house of studies made a projection on the cases to the 19 of April (estimated date of closure to the isolation, before the federal Government increased at day 30): if four of every 10 inhabitants of the State are at home, there would be a between thousand and 514 thousand 718 patients.

However, if there are eight of each 10, the estimate is that only 14 new cases already diagnosed. Up until yesterday were 94; four of them, asymptomatic.

If the population does not adhere to the insulation, would be between 46 thousand and 59 thousand cases and, in consequence, a serious problem of care in the hospitals of the Entity.

The rector of the UdeG, Ricardo Villanueva, said that in the early days of isolation (from 20 to 24 march) achieved the best-case scenario: 80% at home. But in later days, only 40% complied with the measure.

Ask the citizens not to spread rumours of curfew

The Government of Jalisco and the Municipality of Zapopan asked the citizens not to believe or spread the messages that are disseminated through social networks on a supposed curfew.

Both instances reported that, up to now, there is no indication that it would ask the security forces that enforce a curfew; that is to say, that citizens are forced to stay in his home.

Since the end of the week, through applications such as WhatsApp started to move a clip in which a man claims that “sources close to the mayor Paul Lemus Navarro” claim that will be established the restrictive measure.

It calls to those who will listen that “to prevent and to buy everything needed, since all business must close”. None of that is true.

The authorities insisted on not sharing chains of unverified information, because they only generate panic among the population. In addition, this can cause they are in short supply, without necessity, commodity, and food for the rest of the citizenry.
