Sonora Health Secretary Enrique Clausen said during a press conference on Aug. 8, 2020, that young people are spreading the virus more than anyone else in the state.

Sononran health officials reported the state’s lowest daily death toll from coronavirus in months Saturday.

Every day for months, health officials in Sonora have reported dozens of deaths from the coronavirus during nightly press conferences. But on Saturday, there were only eight.

"It's been months since I can remember that we had a night en which I could provide low numbers of deaths like those that were reported today," State Health Secretary Enrique Clausen said.

State data show the last time the state’s daily reported deaths were in the single digits was early June.

But Clausen urged residents not to let their guard down, saying preventative measures are as important as ever. And while the low number of reported deaths is a positive sign, it’s unclear if the state will continue to register fewer deaths in the days and weeks to come.
