The entity reported that 16,133 cases of the disease were confirmed in the past 24 hours, bringing the total to 5,924,000 cases since SARS-CoV-2 emerged in Mexico back in February 2020.
The growth of the epidemic curve is also evident in the number of individuals who showed symptoms of infection in the past 14 days. Another 15,555 active cases in the same period brought the total to 91,559.
Another 24 new deaths were also confirmed, for a total of 325,511 since the first death reported in March 2020. Although the protection measures have been relaxed, many people spontaneously maintain them and the mask still prevails, even in open spaces
The rise in infections reported by the Ministry of Health has also triggered the number of rapid tests, not only free ones in state establishments, but also those with exaggerated prices between 10 and 25 dollars in private pharmacies and clinics.
According to official figures, the daily average number of tests in state facilities ranges between 20 and 100, something not expected two or three weeks ago when almost no one went to the places enabled to this effect; now, however, care modules are being reinstalled in many municipalities.
