Neighboring Sonora is coming down steadily from its omicron-fueled wave.

Now, all but one of the state’s 72 municipalities are considered yellow, or moderate risk. Just the week before, the vast majority — including the capital and largest city Hermosillo — were at orange, or high risk. Only Caborca in northwestern Sonora remains at that level.

Weekly confirmed cases have now declined for three consecutive weeks. Deaths, hospitalizations and test positivity are also on the decline, according to data tracked by analyst Luis Armando Moreno.

Boosters for Sonorans in their 30s also started this week in a number of cities across the state.
