The Mexican Ministry of Health reported this Monday that the line of 53,000 deaths has been exceeded from the disease caused by COVID-19, confirming its position as the third deadliest country, surpassed only by the United States and Brazil.
In their final part, the authorities confirmed 5,558 new infections and 705 more deaths, so that 485,836 cases and 53,003 deaths have already been accumulated while investigating the cause for another 2,415 suspects.
Despite the figures, the Director General of Epidemiology, José Luis Alomía, has stressed that the pandemic has slowed down in recent weeks, which is reflected in the fact that less than half of the tests carried out were positive.
Of the 485,836 accumulated cases, only 8 percent are still active, and there are already 327,993 people who have managed to overcome the disease. Her epicenter in the country is in Mexico City, where Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum is in quarantine after the secretary of the Mexican capital’s government, José Alfonso Suárez, tested positive for coronavirus.
Along with Mexico City, with 3,790 active cases, the states of Guanajuato with 2,279 and Nuevo León with 1,847 are the regions of the country where most people continue to try to recover from the disease.
