    The most lethal pandemic in Guanajuato is insecurity
    ve1vv3b8pydjkmlp.jpg

    To this day, Guanajuato remains at the national level, as the federative entity with the most violent deaths, by adding with a cut to March 31, 2020 the stratospheric figure of 1 thousand 163 intentional homicides, but the death rate has not decreased in relation at the average of the first three months of the year, it is enough to observe the daily report that is issued by the Ministry of Security and citizen protection , to appreciate the high number of intentional homicides reported day by day.

    As of May 21, and according to the daily cut made by the am newspaper, we have that “In the first 19 months of the Diego Sinhue Administration , Guanajuato registers a total of 5,895 victims of intentional homicide . They are 821 from October to December 2018, plus 3,540 in 2019 and 1,534 in the first four months of 2020.” ...

    Looking at the numbers of deaths caused by insecurity and compared with the deaths caused by the pandemic, it can clearly be seen that insecurity is much more lethal than the coronavirus; Despite these alarming figures, the issue has been completely overcome and overshadowed by the health emergency, and if in the recent past the State Governor himself and the Secretary of Public Security avoided to address the issue before the media, today they have dropped it. Like a finger on the pandemic, since insecurity continues to grow, there are still dozens of deaths every day, but attention is no longer focused on this issue.

    Guanajuato people are dissatisfied with IMSS
    IMSS users in Guanajuato are not at all happy with the service.

    The level of satisfaction with the health service offered by the State Government in Guanajuato was much higher, at 59.3%, higher than the national average of 47.2%, which placed the entity with the sixth best rating of the 32 entities.

    They continue in search of giving voice to the indigenous people of Guanajuato
    Next week the two opinions that seek to give greater political and electoral participation to the indigenous community of Guanajuato will be uploaded to the plenary session of Congress. ...

    These opinions seek to reform, add and repeal various of the State Electoral Institutions and Procedures Law, as well as the Organic Law of the Municipalities of Guanajuato. The first seeks that in the municipalities considered indigenous, the parties are obliged to integrate people with that origin in the first three places of their lists so that they have representation in the municipalities that are renewed in 2021.

    The second seeks that indigenous peoples can elect their representatives before the city council, according to their uses and customs, but with voice and vote within the decisions that affect them in their communities.

    Cyclone Amphan caused an estimated $13.2 billion in damage in India's West Bengal: government source
    The powerful cyclone that slammed into the coastal region where India and Bangladesh meet Wednesday likely caused $13.2 billion dollars in West Bengal alone, according to a source in the Indian state's government.

    The storm, Cyclone Amphan, packed powerful winds and heavy rains that killed at least 80 people in West Bengal and another 10 across the border in Bangladesh. As many as 500,000 families in Bangladesh may now be homeless, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, while the West Bengal government said that about 60% of the population was affected.

    There is added urgency to get people displaced by the storm into adequate shelter due to the Covid-19 pandemic, as both India and Bangladesh grapple with accelerating infection rates.
