Resplandor del ZIHelo Tropical

The number that is considered most idicative up here is hospitalizations. I’m not sure that that works well in Zihuatanejo, since, as I understand it, folks tend not to go to the hospital as frequently as we do. I am concerned that the road ahead will be rocky there since it is felt that the best protection is with full vaccination and a booster, and few, if any in Zihuatanejo have had boosters. I hope it continues to be less severe, but I think the jury is still out on that.

If the "rate of lethality" is the number of deaths per 100 confirmed cases, ......and I'm guessing that in both Zihua's and Mexico's cases, because many of those actually suffering from COVID reportedly choose NOT to go to hospital, "confirmed cases" may be only the tip of the iceberg......then reported rates of lethality like 6% (Zihua) or 6.9% (Mexico) or 11% (Petatlan) or 19% (La Union)......compared to the USA (1.3%), Canada (1.1%) or the world (1.7%) are truly sobering.
