Mexico this Monday saw the lowest number of new coronavirus cases since April 2020, adding 704 infections on the final day, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 2,366,496 according to the latest health department.
In the last part, 104 more deaths from COVID-19 were reported, which to date have killed 219,089 people in Mexican territory.
In this context, the Undersecretary of State for Prevention and Health Promotion, Hugo López-Gatell, has emphasized that the current epidemic proportions of the pandemic are similar to those of April 2020, but this time show a decline in the trend, reports the Mexican media ‘Milenio’.
“If we compare the burden of disease we have at this point in time, infections, hospitalizations, deaths, with the history of this epidemic, we would see that we are like we were in early April 2020, just then and now below “has indicated.
And the fact is, the country, with an estimated 18,020 active infections in virtually all residential areas, has had reductions in both cases and mortality. Among them, the most worrying is Quintana Roo, which has added five weeks with an increase in positive results in contrast to the other. López-Gatell, for example, pushed ahead with working with government agencies on a strategy to reduce infections.
On the other hand, he has indicated that as part of the COVID-19 vaccination schedule, 21,300,414 doses have already been used in the country after 72,055 had been administered on the last day.
