More than 100,000 deaths in Mexico are now attributed to Covid-19, a disease that has placed a major strain on the country's health system and exacted a severe economic toll on its most vulnerable citizens.

Mexico currently ranks fourth worldwide in the number of deaths attributed to the pandemic, behind only the United States, Brazil and India. It also ranks 11th globally in coronavirus cases even though authorities there have been criticized for a lack of widespread testing.
