Covid Test Data?

by FrozenNoMás @, Wednesday, October 20, 2021, 12:43 (40 days ago)

Hola all you good people! I’m assessing an extended family trip to Zihua in December. It’s really great to see the active case numbers for Zihua and Guerrero so low, per Rob’s valuable daily reports. Does anybody have a source for testing data, including number of tests administered daily/weekly and the positive test %’s? I don’t recall seeing that info discussed recently, but if I missed it I apologize.
Gracias for any help you can provide.

You won't find that data for Zihuatanejo. It doesn't exist.

Thanks amigo. Was hoping to get some context for the low case counts, but I understand.

I've mentioned repeatedly in my ZIH posts that we really can't trust our stats, and that the true number is probably three times as much. But I know what I see as well as the illnesses we hear about. Almost all of us here have lost friends if not also family to this infernal disease, and it's the reason so many of us take the extreme precautions that we do. Mexico's Sub-Secretario de Salud Dr. Hugo López-Gatell has expressed optimism recently as most of the country went to Semáforo Verde including the entire Área Metropolitana del Valle de México. A major achievement for our largest population center. So even with the sketchy stats I feel good about how we're doing locally as well as nationally.

We agree.
