With this figure, Mexico is the thirteenth country with the most confirmed cases, according to data compiled by the Johns Hopkins University platform.
They also already add 132,069 deaths, after they confirmed 1,038 more in the last 24 hours, the fourth consecutive day with more than 1,000. With the total, Mexico remains the fourth country that accumulates the most deaths.
Mexico is experiencing an upturn in infections that can be seen in the fact that the last half a million was confirmed in less than two months, when it took five months to reach the first and the second three months.
The Ministry of Health affirms that the end of the year holidays have begun to be reflected in the positive cases and deaths in recent days.
