Mexico has posted another daily record for newly confirmed coronavirus infections, with 16,105 new reported Saturday, and a near-record of 1,135 deaths related to the virus in the latest 24-hour period.
The country has now topped 1.5 million total infections and over 133,000 deaths so far in the pandemic. Given Mexico’s extremely low level of testing, official estimates suggest the real death toll is over 180,000.
Health authorities said 6,722 shots of coronavirus vaccine were administered Friday, for a total so far of about 75,000. In Mexico City, the current center of the pandemic in Mexico, 90 percent of hospital beds are full.-AP
