Just when we had started breathing a bit easier our Covid-19 numbers have started surging again like in most of the nation. This week we had 35 new cases and while they make no reference if any of these are of the Delta variant they have transferred 12 individuals to other hospitals in the interior of the state (San Antonio, Texas). This brings the total active positive cases in Del Rio and Val Verde County to 84.
Cases are also incrementing in Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila, México. While our country donated vaccines to México their president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador decided that those should be allocated only to Tijuana, Baja California the largest border in the United States with México and also the most transited border in the world.
Yesterday, thousands showed up starting at 6:00 a.m. to line up to receive their vaccines causing chaos and traffic jams per El Zócalo newspaper. I am trying to post a picture but my computer is not cooperating so here is the link. https://www.zocalo.com.mx/provoca-caos-vehicular-asistencia-a-vacunacion/
We are so fortunate to have so many vaccine doses in our nation while many countries wish they were as lucky...yet ours go unused.
On a sad note, a Laughlin Air Force Base pilot instructor who was only 34 years old lost his life in an aerial accident. His plane went down in a private ranch 30 miles from Del Rio.
Have you looked up at the sky this evening? It is a beautiful full moon with an orange tinge.
Good night, May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
