Mexico Coronavirus Map and Case Count
| | | |
There have been at least 142,600 cases of the coronavirus in Mexico, according to the National Agency of Science and Technology. As of Sunday morning, 16,872 people had died.
In May, the Times found that the Mexican government was not reporting hundreds, possibly thousands, of deaths from the coronavirus in Mexico City, according to officials and confidential data.
Earlier this week, the total number of reported cases and deaths increased significantly as the government added thousands of new cases to its historical data. Officials may revise historical data as more case details become known. The Times has made these historical revisions to the data on this page through June 3.

About this data:
The map shows the known locations of coronavirus cases by county. For total cases and deaths: Circles are sized by the number of people there who have tested positive or have a probable case of the virus, which may differ from where they contracted the illness. For per capita: Parts of a county with a population density lower than 10 people per square mile are not shaded.
Here’s how the number of cases and deaths are growing in Mexico:

The New York Times is engaged in an effort to track details about cases and deaths around the world, collecting information from local governments and other sources around the clock. The numbers in this article are being updated several times a day based on the latest information our journalists have gathered.
New reported cases by day in Mexico
Note: The seven-day average is the average of a day and the previous six days of data.
New reported deaths by day in Mexico
Note: Scale for deaths chart is adjusted from cases chart to display trend.
The New York Times has found that official tallies in the United States and in more than a dozen other countries have undercounted deaths during the coronavirus outbreak because of limited testing availability.
About the data
Confirmed cases and deaths are counts of individuals whose coronavirus infections were confirmed by a laboratory test. Probable cases and deaths count individuals who did not have a confirmed test but were evaluated using criteria developed by national and local governments. Some governments are reporting only confirmed cases, while others are reporting both confirmed and probable numbers. And there is also another set of governments that are reporting the two types of numbers combined without providing a way to separate the confirmed from the probable. The Times is now using the total of confirmed and probable counts when they are available individually or combined. Otherwise only the confirmed count will be shown.
Governments often revise data or report a large increase in cases on a single day without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible.

What you can do
Experts’ understanding of how the Covid-19 works is growing. It seems that there are four factors that most likely play a role: how close you get to an infected person; how long you are near that person; whether that person expels viral droplets on or near you; and how much you touch your face afterwards.
You can help reduce your risk and do your part to protect others by following some basic steps:
Keep your distance from others. Stay at least six feet away from people outside your household as much as possible.
Wash your hands often. Anytime you come in contact with a surface outside your home, scrub with soap for at least 20 seconds, rinse and then dry your hands with a clean towel.
Avoid touching your face. The virus primarily spreads when contaminated hands touch our nose or mouth or eyes. Try to keep your hands away from your face unless you have just recently washed them.
Wear a mask outside your home. A mask protects others from any potential infection from you. The more people who wear masks, the more we all stay safer.
Here’s a complete guide on how you can prepare for the coronavirus outbreak.
