As of today Zihuatanejo has registered a cumulative total of 1,320 confirmed cases of Covid-19, 96 that have resulted in fatalities, 31 that are currently active, and approximately 1,109 that have recovered. Still not seeing the spike I was expecting.

I'm saddened to report that we're continuing to lose tourist-dependent businesses that have not had any clients since last March. It really is worrisome. Fortunately Guerrero is not going to Semáforo Rojo this week as had been predicted by many, so we continue with a "modified" version of the protocols for Semáforo Naranja. I've been watching the numbers here and around the country, and they generally seem to be dropping. Only in parts of Ciudad de México and some other large cities do the rates of infection remain relatively high compared to most of the nation. If we get through the next couple of weeks without a spike, then I would expect to see numbers continue decreasing.

If you are planning on visting us this coming fall or winter season, PLEASE consider making plans to take a tour or two and sending a deposit to help these folks get through these tough times.

Economies are frail in normal times but this is about as bad as it can get. Small biz is getting killed everywhere first by shutdown and now the restrictions. Most are just fighting to survive by losing as little as possible until things open up 100%. I can only imagine how bad it is when almost the entire town is small biz like Z and then tourism being stifled to boot. Since there isn't light at the end of the tunnel as to not needing the restrictions I don't see things improving soon. Of course none of this has applied to Amazon and Walmart.

This is probably the worst disaster the world and planet have seen since World War II. That's pretty bad! It is absolutely devastating to economies and individuals world-wide, everywhere! Even those with financial security are suffering from uncertainty, fear, and a HOST of other emotional and mental problems. But, as hard as it is to imagine, something, somehow, good is going to come out of all of this. For the first time in a long time WE ALL, everyone in the world, has something in common: a thread of common concern and empathy for all of mankind that is binding us all together, for the first time in a very long time! And this new world, collective consciousness will hopefully lead us all to something far, far greater than that which we have been living in recent years. I wish Peace, patience, kindness, and understanding to all! Eric
