Mexico exceeds 35 thousand deaths from coronavirus and becomes 4th in the world with more deaths

Deaths caused by the pandemic of coronavirus in Mexico it surpassed 35,000 on Sunday, and the country now has the fourth highest number of deaths due to the covid-19 in the world, surpassing Italy, according to a Reuters count.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said yesterday that the pandemic is “losing intensity” in Mexico, and blamed what he calls “conservative media” for causing alarm.

On the same day, the nation recorded another 276 deaths and 4,482 new infections, bringing the number of deaths from the coronavirus to 35,006 and confirmed cases to 299,750. Italy accumulates 34,954 deaths and 243,061 cases. Mexico lags behind the United States, Brazil and the United Kingdom in total deaths.

While Italy appears to have tamed the virus, the pandemic shows little sign of abating in Mexico, and López Obrador’s leftist government was criticized for reopening the economy too soon.

López Obrador said he was updated about the pandemic last week and is optimistic.

“The report is positive, good. The conclusion is that the pandemic is receding, that it is losing intensity,” he said in a video message.

López Obrador also supported Hugo López-Gatell, the deputy minister of health and responsible for combating the coronavirus, after the criticisms he received for handling the crisis.

López-Gatell revised his projections for total deaths several times, and in June predicted up to 35,000 deaths by October – in early May, the estimate was 6,000.

The number of coronavirus deaths per million inhabitants in Mexico, whose population is about 120 million, is the 16th highest on the planet, according to data from research firm Statista.

But Mexican officials say the real figure is probably much higher due to limited tests. An analysis by Reuters based on data from funeral homes in May indicated a number more than twice that reported.

Several former officials have criticized the López Obrador government for its handling of the epidemic.

Former Health Minister Salomon Chertorivski, who held the position between 2011 and 2012, said on Thursday (9) that the government reactivated the economy before meeting globally established criteria for doing so, and added that Mexico may have to impose new insulation.
