How does the Mexico Daily News reach that conclusion? Testing is nearly non existent in Mexico. How can you know for sure where the problem is the worst?

Why do I get the feeling that none of you commenting here have been reading my posts very carefully for the past week or so?

Yes, there was testing done in the colonias and in Ixtapa. Ixtapa was the highest point of contagion according to local sources. La Puerta and all those Casas Geo projects (that should never have been built). It ran the overall count up, but everything else remained the same. It brought the contagion per 100,000 number down, but so many of these numbers are truly meaningless to the general public except in the strictest clinical sense. What counts is what's happening in the hospitals and on the streets.

The biggest problem on the ground remains getting people to wear facemasks and to practice safe distancing. More locals are doing so, but I keep seeing tourists on vacation including foreigners strolling around without masks. Especially at night.
