The sixth wave of COVID 19 has alerted the health authorities to the rebound of certain strains, and the introduction of a new one known as Kraken. However, and to reassure the population, the Ministry of Health indicated that the infections are no longer as serious as at the beginning of the pandemic thanks to the vaccination campaign that has protected a large number of people.
According to data from the Government of Mexico, vaccines have protected 91 percent of the population corresponding to those over 18 years of age, with at least one dose.

The Ministry of Health warned that the winter season and the icy waves that have hit the country in recent weeks have led to the spread of COVID 19, as well as other respiratory diseases.
The agencies recommend continuing to use face masks in closed spaces and with little ventilation, in addition to, as far as possible, maintaining a healthy distance and recurrent application of antibacterial gel.
The authorities also advised the population to avoid sudden changes in temperature and go to any health center when presenting any related symptom in order to take the corresponding precautions and avoid further infections.
It should be remembered that, despite the different registered variants of COVID 19, the symptoms are very similar, such as: cough, fever, fatigue and general malaise, nasal congestion, lack of taste and smell and in some cases diarrhea.
