MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s health ministry on Thursday reported 16,244 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country, its highest daily jump since the end of January, and 419 more fatalities.
Those figures swelled the country’s tallies to 2,709,739 infections and 237,626 deaths.
The government has said the real number of cases is likely significantly higher, and separate data published recently suggested the actual death toll is at least 60% above the confirmed figure.
