MEXICALI, B.C. (KYMA, KECY)-Baja California's Governor Jaime Bonilla says the state continues to be on red alert for this week due to the rise in cases.

"Really what I should have said is, this is how we are and we are going to wait, when there is a change we will notify it. They were given to understand that each week this would be changing, and this is not the case because it is like predicting how the pandemic comes, "said Governor Bonilla Valdez.

The Secretary of Health in Baja California, Alonso O. Pérez Rico, says two of the municipalities of the entity with the highest population density (Mexicali and Ensenada) are not in conditions for "return".
