Mexico is already the third country with more coronavirus deaths in the world after reporting 688 additional deaths this Friday and reaching 46,688, surpassing the United Kingdom (46,204) and it is located only behind the United States (153,268) and Brazil (92,475) .

In addition, 8,458 new infections were reported, the largest increase recorded since the arrival of the pandemic in the country, which already accumulates 424,637.

Mexico has used the sentinel model to measure the ravages of the pandemic, a system authorized by the World Health Organization (WHO) for other respiratory diseases, which has caused controversy for being one of the countries of the Organization for Cooperation and Economic Development (OECD) that performs less diagnostic tests on the population.

Even the same authorities have admitted that there is an under-registration of deaths and this Friday they reported that the actual number of deaths is 48,615, 1,927 more than the official figures. However, journalistic reports based on death certificates ensure that only in the capital it could be double or triple what was registered, according to EFE.

The undersecretary of Health Hugo López-Gatell has assured several times that it is “impossible” to have the exact numbers of sick and dead of an epidemic and has defended that the health strategy must be designed based on other data, such as the speed of transmission of the virus .

In a joint statement, 10 opposition governors called for López-Gatell to resign on Friday for giving “contradictory, confusing and inconsistent information.”
