Mexico has surpassed 10,000 coronavirus-related deaths, according to the country’s health authorities.
An additional 237 deaths on Monday took Mexico’s toll to 10,167 since March 18, when the country’s first coronavirus fatality was recorded. Officials also reported another 2,771 cases, bringing the confirmed total to 93,435.
The country has recorded the second-most deaths in Latin America — and the seventh-most worldwide.
It comes as Mexico entered a new Covid-19 phase Monday, reopening certain sectors of the economy such as mining, construction and tourism in certain areas under a plan deemed the “new normal.”
