The good news this past week is the R reproduction rate dropping to 1.05 and according to the Central American Population Center (CCP) that reports the rate every Wednesday, it is on the down trend.

The R rate indicates the average number of people that each infected person infects during their contagion period. A rate of 1 means that each generation of cases is replaced by another of the same size. The ideal is below 1 which would mean the epidemic is on its way to extinction.
