By BBN Staff: Since early April, Mexico has seen a rapid rise in COVID-19 infections and deaths, but the United Kingdom-based media house The Guardian, says that the number of actual deaths coming out of Mexico City could be even higher than the official reports.
The Guardian published an article this week saying that Mexico had issued over 8,000 more death certificates for the period January-May 2020, than it did for the same period last year. The Guardian cites information published in the Mexican magazine Nexos as its source. The article, which was published on Monday, compiled data from the capital
city’s 53 civil registries. The article also reported that Mexico saw some 479 deaths from COVID-19 on Friday alone.
“The investigation into Mexico City’s death certificates added to growing questions about the official COVID-19 death count in both Mexico and its capital,” the Guardian said.
Mexico hit a new record of reported cases this week, according to the Mexican media site Informador, with over 2,400 cases reported in 24-hours on Monday. Mexico’s official COVID-19 number stood at over 74,000 confirmed cases with over 8,000 deaths as of today, May 27, 2020.
The increase in numbers has prompted authorities in Belize to keep many of the State of Emergency measures in place despite the country going over 40 days without a newly reported case. Illegal crossing of the border into Mexico is currently still punishable by mandatory prison time.
