At least 1,163,574 cases and 113,826 deaths. Official case counts likely under-represent the true extent of infection, as the nation has very low testing rates.
30 November: The Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) said in a media briefing today that Mexico is in "bad shape" regarding its surge in cases and deaths. Weekly deaths has increased from around 2,000 a week in mid-October to 4,000 a week by late November. Director-General Tedros urged the government to take serious action to help curtail the outbreak, which he called "very worrisome." The nation now has the fourth-highest death toll from COVID-19 worldwide, and at least seven of the 54 public facilities designated to treat COVID patients are at capacity for respirator beds.
20 November: In the week of November 9-15, the country reported more than 42,000 new infections (328 cases per 100,000 people), a 16 percent increase from last week. Deaths rates climbed 9 percent.
15 November: Mexico has reported over 1 million deaths and over 100,000 deaths as cases continue to rise.
6 November: The northern state of Durango now joins Chihuahua - a neighboring region on the U.S. border - in the highest level if alert in the country. Officials designated the areas as red in a bid to try and contain the climbing infection rates in northern Mexico. Most of Mexico's 32 regions are designated orange or yellow (18 orange, 11 yellow) with only Campeche in the green category.
