Sonora Now 1 Of 14 Mexican States At Green, Lowest COVID-19 Risk
Sonora, Arizona’s neighbor to the south, is now at green, or low risk, on the Mexican pandemic semáforo — or traffic light — scale.
It’s one of 14 states with that status, nearly half of Mexico’s 32 states. However, three large Sonoran municipalities — including the capital Hermosillo — remain at yellow, or moderate risk, according to the state’s own scale.
“This should not in any way encourage you to go out as if COVID has left,” said Enrique Clausen, Sonora’s health secretary,
Sonora previously regained green status in mid-March, only to lose it a few weeks later.
State data tracked by the University of Sonora show declining daily cases and deaths over the past month.
