Thank you Rebecca, excellent posting! |

Hypertension continues to lead as the most frequent co-morbidity
suffered by people who have died from COVID-19 in Jalisco: It is
reported in 53 percent of the 1,147 confirmed deaths to date.
The second place is occupied by diabetes, present in 42 percent
of reported deaths. And it is common for affected people to suffer
from both diseases.
The figures show the vulnerability of chronic patients to
the attack of the new coronavirus and it is recognized by
experts and health authorities that especially people with
hypertension and / or uncontrolled diabetes are more susceptible
to complications since SARS infection -CoV-2 affects not only
the respiratory system, but all organs.
That is why people with chronic diseases are considered a
vulnerable group and it is recommended that they stay home as
long as possible, so as not to expose themselves to infections,
since they are at greater risk than the healthy general population.
However, this group should not neglect their usual treatments,
both for hypertension, diabetes and other chronic conditions,
and it is recommended that they continue with the care and practice
of healthy habits: balanced diet, regular exercise, sufficient
sleep and combat stress. .
Additionally, preventive measures must be followed in the face of
COVID-19, such as the proper use of the mouth mask in public space,
which must avoid or remain for a short period of time, seeking a
minimum distance of 1.5 meters from other people.
Following these measures reduces the risk for this vulnerable group
and for the general population, which also protects the sick,
elderly and pregnant women when taking care of themselves.
In any case, before symptoms such as fever that does not subside
or respiratory distress, it is important to immediately go
to a health unit, in order to avoid complications from this new infectious disease.
Today, the Jalisco Health Secretariat (SSJ) reported 755
new infections of COVID-19, which accumulates 21,033 confirmed
cases since last March when the first patient was reported in this entity.
Of the total, this Monday 2,907 active cases are reported (positive
people who started with symptoms in the last fourteen days).
In Jalisco, 1,232 people recovered from the disease are reported,
of whom there is complete certainty of their recovery (either
by a negative test or by epidemiological clinical criteria).
This Tuesday, the SSJ reported 42 more deaths from COVID-19 (deaths
occurred between June 5 and July 15 of this year); which accumulates
1,147 deaths confirmed by the SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Of these deaths that occurred in the state, 1,117 correspond to
residents of 63 municipalities of Jalisco; and 30 to residents
of other entities in the country who died here.
The deaths reported today are distributed as follows:
