MEXICO CITY, /Xinhua/
Mexico’s health ministry said on Wednesday that 485 deaths were reported during the past 24 hours, taking the national death toll to 45,361.
The country that shares a northern border with the United States, the world’s hardest-hit country, has so far reported a total of 408,449 cases as of Wednesday with 5,752 new infections.
Mexico has the fourth-highest death tally worldwide, following the United States, Brazil and Britain.
As the testing capacity grows, the government has estimated that the real number of infections is likely higher than the current figure.
The Mexican Foreign Ministry said in mid-July that the country sought to extend restrictions on non-essential border travel with the United States for an additional 30 days.
