I don’t really believe any of these numbers or rankings. The U.S. vastly overcounted COVID deaths by combining those who died “from” COVID with whose who died “with” it. China’s numbers are utterly unbelievable. Some countries are not testing at nearly the rate of others, so nobody knows how many actually died of COVID. We really don’t have any idea how many people COVID-19 killed with any specificity. We never will. We missed out opportunity for data integrity.
Mexico has published revised figures indicating that the number of deaths caused by coronavirus is 60% higher than previously reported.
More than 321,000 people are now believed to have died from Covid-19 in the country.
The revised toll places Mexico with the second highest number of Covid-related deaths in the world, after the US.
That places Mexico above Brazil, which has registered 310,000 deaths, and below the US which has recorded 549,000 fatalities – despite having a population of 126 million which is far smaller than either country.
