Mexico has confirmed another 495 coronavirus-related deaths, meaning that as of Wednesday, at least 90,308 people have been killed by the virus in the country since the pandemic began.
Mexico already has the fourth-highest Covid-19 death toll of any country, but officials here have long said the actual number of people who have died from the virus is likely higher than reported due to lack of testing.
After examining the numbers this week, health officials concluded that it is likely that at least an additional 50,000 more people have died as a result of the coronavirus than has been officially reported.
The Health Ministry also reported 5,595 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, bringing the country’s total to 906,863.
