As of Saturday, April 18, more than 100 people had died from COVID-19 in the past 24 hours in Mexico, bringing the country’s death toll to 650, Public Health Undersecretary Hugo López-Gatell said.

With 622 new confirmed cases, the number of the total infected in the country had risen to nearly 7,500 on Saturday, Lopez-Gatell said, although many medical experts are warning that the incidence of the disease is grossly unreported in Mexico.

To better contain the spread of the disease, on Thursday, April 16, the Mexican government announced an extension of a nationwide lockdown until May 30.
