So after 5 months if I understand your reports correctly, we've had 54 cases out of the approximately 40,000 people in this municipio, 0.135 percent, and something like 6 deaths, or 0.015 percent.  And there has been no surge since the Tapatios were allowed back in (although many came all along).  Is this correct?

A little amplification  - the article was not meant to downplay the need for masks in appropriate circumstances. The article was published on April 1, 2020. The authors followed up with an editor

Thank you for causing confusion. Do you expect me to read every local paper now ? ☹️ (you would do so much better on TOB).

What part of the local population taking precautions so they don't get infected by the weekenders, and the weekenders being counted in the Guadalajara stats if they are infected, eludes you?  Sin

    • “Papito, breathe!” his wife screamed. “Please breathe.”

Within an hour, Mr. Bailón was dead.

Mexico is battling one of the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the world, with more than 52,000 confirmed deaths, the third-highest toll of the pandemic. And its struggle has been made even harder by a pervasive phenomenon: a deeply rooted fear of hospitals.

The problem has long plagued nations overwhelmed by unfamiliar diseases. During the Ebola epidemic in 2014, many in Sierra Leone believed that hospitals had become hopeless death traps, leading sick people to stay home and inadvertently spread the disease to their families and neighbors.

Here in Mexico, a similar vicious cycle is taking place. As the pandemic crushes an already weak health care system, with bodies piling up in refrigerated trucks, many Mexicans see the Covid ward as a place where only death awaits — to be avoided at all cost.

The consequences, doctors, nurses and health ministers say, are severe. Mexicans are waiting to seek medical care until their cases are so bad that doctors can do little to help them. Thousands are dying before ever seeing the inside of a hospital, government data show, succumbing to the virus in taxis on the way there or in sickbeds at home.

Fighting infections at home may not only spread the disease more widely, epidemiologists say, but it also hides the true toll of the epidemic because an untold number of people die without ever being tested — and officially counted — as coronavirus victims.

So after five and a half months the local death rate is 0.0125% and the official local infection rate is 0.1525 percent assuming a population of 40,000.  The Tapatios have been back in town for nearly two months.  There are no sanitary check points.

Since you seem intent on promoting the notion that the virus poses little danger, perhaps you could wangle yourself an invite to a big weekend Tapatio party and attend with no mask. Then report back in a couple weeks as to how that went for you.

So now increasing, and at an increasing rate.    Not good.    And it is just beginning to hit the younger people, hard, and it is going to get much worse unless both behaviours and procedures are changed.

Are you speaking of the 10 cases currently active in Chapala? If so where are you finding the age information?

This is pretty much happening everywhere and the main factors seem to be summer social gatherings without masks, distancing, or other proper protocols, and camp / early back to school with the same issues / factors.    If you're not aware of this, then with respect, you're not reading the news.
