Mexico has recorded more than 100,000 deaths from Covid-19 - the fourth country to pass the sombre milestone.

According to Johns Hopkins University, the country has suffered 100,104 deaths since the pandemic began. 

The news comes just days after the world's largest Spanish-speaking country reported more than one million infections.


Bad as that news is the real situation seems to be much, much worse

Quote Government officials have acknowledged that the true toll from the pandemic is likely higher.


The Government there also seems to have followed the lead of the country to the north in playing down the seriousness, and then letting the people pay the price with their health and their lives.

Quote Critics accuse President Andrés Manuel López Obrador of being too slow to bring in measures to tackle the outbreak when the pandemic began, and of rolling back those restrictions too quickly. 

In March the government ran adverts declaring that the virus "is not an emergency situation", and President Obrador told the media that amulets and prayer were his "protective shield" against infection.

After telling Mexicans to stay at home at the end of March as Covid-19 cases started to rise, Mr Obrador eased regulations in May in a bid to restart the suffering economy.
