A month ago, in a private laboratory located on Avenida Américas They performed about 60 COVID-19 tests throughout the day, but currently the average has grown to more than 120.
At this point in the city, there are people waiting all day to take a test, either for antigens or PCR.
“It has about a month that increased again. For antigen tests, more than 100 arrive a day… plus PCRs,” said Lupita, who works there.
It’s not the only one. In the pharmacies that are located on Normalistas Avenue, in Guadalajara, employees agreed that the rise began a month ago.
“They are even handling dating again. There are days when the doctor tells us that there are more than 20 that come out positive. A month ago there were about eight. said Maria, a worker.
On May 9, in Jalisco the mandatory use of face masks was eliminated in most spaces (except in public transport and hospitals), this as a result of the decrease in hospitalizations.
According to data from the Jalisco Health Secretariat (SSJ), the number of tests applied has grown 50% since then in hospitals, laboratories or public modules.
