01/21/22 The municipalities of La Paz, Los Cabos and Loreto remain at Level 3, while Mulegé and Comondú drop to Level 4. Increased cases and hospitalizations in these more remote communities has reached saturation. Last week had a costly toll, with 35 deaths in Baja California Sur. Statewide the number of active cases has dropped by about 1000 over last week's high of 8,500+, or more than 1% of the state's population. This week's number indicate a still number of concern, with 7514 active cases in the state. Hospital occupancy has fallen slightly in the major communities, but resources remain at critical levels in the municipalities of Comondú and Mulegé. 

La Paz would appear to be the epicenter of the latest outbreak, despite having similar populations to the municipality of Los Cabos, has more than 5 times the number of active cases. But the majority of the difference between the two municipalities is mainly in ambulatory cases where La Paz has 5096 and Los Cabos with just 887, while hospitalizations totals are nearly equal with La Paz having 58 and Los Cabos having 57. Los Cabos has nearly 2x the number of intimated cases compared to La Paz. The dramatic difference between the holiday tourist destination of Los Cabos and the more backwater La Paz is statistically unlikely, and more likely the result of the availability and active use of testing in the state's two largest municipalities. 

The reduction to Level 3 will mean more restrictions on the occupancy of businesses, greater restrictions on businesses selling alcohol, social events, and the hours for the sale of alcohol in stores. Restrictions for Level 4 are even greater to be applied to the municipalities of Mulegé and Comondú. 

Baja California Sur reported its first cases of the Omicron variation on Thursday. The vast majority of the new cases presenting currently are of the Delta variant.
