The Ministry of Health of Mexico reported that the country registered 33,626 new infections of COVID-19 on Tuesday, the highest number during the pandemic, for a total of 4,170,066 cases, in addition to 162 deaths to reach 300,574 total deaths.

The more than 33,000 infections represent the maximum number of cases after the country reported 30,671 cases on Saturday.

Despite these figures, Mexico remains the sixteenth country in the world in the number of confirmed infections and is the fifth with the most deaths from this cause, behind the United States, Brazil, India and Russia, according to the University count Johns Hopkins.

The health authorities acknowledge that, based on the death certificates, the country may close to 451,000 deaths and estimate that Mexico actually accumulates 4,408,014 infections.

Of the number of confirmed cases, there are 184,660 active, who have presented symptoms during the last 14 days and account for 4.2% of the total.

In addition, 3,363,803 people have recovered since the start of the pandemic.

The average occupancy of general beds in Mexican hospitals stands at 23% and the use of intensive care beds at 14%.

This Tuesday, the Undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell, in charge of managing the pandemic in Mexico, asked people who have been in contact with a positive for COVID-19 not to take a test and limit themselves to isolation .

“Taking the test is not going to change our decision to isolate ourselves to protect other people from being infected, instead of running to the kiosk to take a test, what you have to do is stay at home,” said the official.

In recent days, long lines of people have been seen in Mexico seeking – sometimes unsuccessfully – to take a test in public and private centers.

Unlike other countries, Mexico spent Christmas holidays without restrictions due to the pandemic. And despite the rise in infections, the Mexican government has defended its management of the health crisis and has ruled out a fourth wave of COVID-19.

Regarding deaths, Mexico City, the focus of the pandemic, accumulates about 18% of all deaths nationwide.

VACCINATION PLAN

The authorities also indicated that within the vaccination program 152.31 million doses have been administered, adding 263,819 during the last day.

The Government of Mexico affirms that it is the seventh country that has applied the most doses in absolute numbers.

Of its 126 million inhabitants, 82.48 million in the country have at least one dose of the vaccine.

Meanwhile, 74.23 million have completed their vaccination schedule.

Since the end of December 2020, 201.29 million vaccine doses have arrived in Mexico from the American companies Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna, the British AstraZeneca, the Russian Sputnik V and the Chinese CanSino and Sinovac.

The Mexican government said last week that the country expects to have the Cuban vaccine Abdala against COVID-19 in the second quarter of 2022 and it would be considered as a booster dose.
