No, those countries were not part of the study. This is for countries with an economy of 200 billion or more, per annum.


Some are probably ahead and some are probably worse. But you cant conclude they are all better than Mexico.

https://opinionsonora.com/2020/11/24/llenos-hospitales-de-hermosillo-de-pacientes-con-covid-19/




If you translate more of the article, it also says the government is reporting that occupancy jumped from 41 to 44% on Nov 21st, or half of what Opiniion just stated a a couples of paragraphs above in the same article.


Clear as mud, as usual.


It's very possible that the number of cases REPORTED increased by 41-44% on Nov 21st, which brought the OCCUPANCY in hospitals up to 95% capacity. Those two percentages can exist, side by side, and be correct.


At this point, based on all I have read, the only statistic I believe in Mexico, is the hospitalizations. There have been too many interviews with persons within the Mexican government who admit their numbers on infections and deaths are significantly higher (than their OFFICIAL numbers) because there is so little testing done on a per person or per death basis.

There are two VERY SIGNIFICANT articles, published in the last two days, on Mexico News Daily.

One claims that the CDC has just issued a Level 4 travel advisory for travel to Mexico, due to the virus. And, sure enough, there it is.

https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/covid-4/coronavirus-mexico

The other is the article that is purportedly from Bloomberg News Service which ranked Mexico 53rd (last) out of the 53 countries studied in "covid resilience". I cant find that article on the Bloomberg News Service website.

So, if anyone finds that link, please post it.

The CDC article had a VERY SIGNIFICANT statement that persons coming from outside the US MAY BE DENIED ENTRY BACK INTO THE US. Here is how it reads:

"If you get sick with COVID-19 or test positive for the virus that causes COVID-19 while abroad, you might not be permitted to return to the United States until you can end isolation. If you are exposed to someone with COVID-19 during travel, you might be quarantined and not be permitted to return to the United States until 14 days after your last known exposure."

Day 13 with Covid. Slightly increased congestion and cough, but still no issues breathing, and no fever. So far, treating it like a bad cold or nasty flu.

I'm a little surprised. I knew Covid was serious, so took precautions with the idea of safeguarding others. But, always thought that if I got it, it would be kicked in a matter of days. Not so. It's sticking around with symptoms present.

Since Mexico does not have to seek FDA approval for a vaccine, is there any talk about vaccines being available?

Not a chance, not until it's proven and I have to get it to travel, which will be in September to Indonesia.

I will get the vaccine as soon as I can to protect me from people in denial. Then they can do whatever they want.

I equate a new vaccine with buying the first year of a new car model. Let others try it out first.

Pony, Thousands of participants in the testing process of the vaccine, should satisfy your desire not to be in the first wave. I am with RichD, sooner the better.

The deal MX has made for purchasing the vaccine is with China.
China and Russia did NOT finish the phase 3 trials with their vaccines.
So, IMO, people who get the vaccine in Mexico will be the phrase 3 testing that should have been done before release.

For me, the later the better. I have no family to protect and am not worried about myself. Give it six months or so and I'll get it to enable world travel. I don't get the flu vaccine, either.

Marigot, I understand your concern. For those that have the ability to get it in the US, that might be preferable. The Phizer version should be available to some this month. Moderna version soon. Gov says first responders, medical workers, teachers, people in assisted living come first.

Plus, it's more than one dose that you must get.

It is two shots 28 days apart. Those of us that are older, will be able to get the shots about mid year, next year, at the earliest according to the CDC. Then the general public after that, so they say.....I figure at the earliest would be June or July, for the elderly with no serious underlying condition.
