Notable disparity in Covid deaths on both sides of the border
The statistics on the impact of Covid in the region between San Diego County and the state of Baja California are very similar, except in the number of deaths, since Baja California human losses are more than double that of San Diego.
In the state of Baja California, more than 10,940 people have died from Covid 19 so far in the pandemic, according to data from the state chief of epidemiology, Oscar Efrén Zazueta Fierro.
The county of San Diego accumulates 4,500 deaths as of Friday, December 7, reported the state Department of Health.
Comparatively, the county of San Diego with 3.3 million inhabitants has only 41.3 percent of the deaths in the state of Baja California with 3.7 million inhabitants.
In addition to the proximity in populations, the number of infections throughout the pandemic is also similar.
The California Department of Health reports 44,100 infections in San Diego County and Baja California reports 48,225 infections.
The vaccination rates are also similar and in fact both sides of the border reached the levels of the so-called herd immunization almost simultaneously.
On June 14 of last year, the California government lifted restrictions to begin to reactivate the economy, having reached more than 70 percent of vaccination rates among those over 18 years of age.
Around the same time, the government of Mexico sent one million 350 thousand Johnson & Johnson vaccines to Baja California, donated by the administration of President Joe Biden. The Mexican Foreign Ministry hoped that achieving similar levels of immunization would allow for the gradual reopening of the border, or gradually end restrictions on nonessential border crossings.
However, shortly after, the Delta variant of the coronavirus emerged, which again impacted the region, and now Ómicron threatens to take infections to unprecedented levels on both sides of the border.
