The coronavirus pandemic is now in “sustained decline” in Mexico after a significant drop in fatalities during the past week, the government’s coronavirus czar Hugo Lopez-Gatell said on Tuesday.
In the week through Aug. 17, Mexico’s health ministry recorded 4,020 additional fatalities from the virus, a decline of almost 20% from the previous seven-day period.
Deputy Health Minister Lopez-Gatell and President Andrés Manuel López Obrador have made a series of declarations about how the government is winning the fight against the virus, even as the pandemic continues to hit new records in Mexico.
Lopez-Gatell said that in most of Mexico, the number of new daily cases and deaths has been diminishing.
“The epidemic is slowing … it’s now in a sustained decline,” he told a regular news conference.
