Half of Mexico’s states are at low risk of contagion, and Quintana Roo is the only one at high levels

Half of Mexico’s states are at low risk of contagion for the first time since the pandemic, while another 15 states are at medium risk, and Quintana Roo remains the only high-risk state to have the worst epidemiological traffic light.

The 16 countries with a low risk of infection are marked green at the epidemiological traffic light, although the Mexican authorities have asked not to reduce their vigilance in these areas, reports the Mexican media “Milenio”.

While 15 other states have the middle yellow color, including Mexico City, Quintana Roo is the orange color and is considered the most worried housing unit because the red, which is the maximum risk, doesn’t stain any area.
