Coronavirus has claimed more than 40,000 lives in Mexico
Mexico's health ministry reported on Tuesday that the coronavirus left 40,400 dead in the country, AFP reported.

"40,400 deaths," said the secretariat in the daily technical report on the virus, which means that in the last 24 hours there were 915 more deaths.

The number of confirmed cases went from Monday to Tuesday from 349,396 to 356,255, which represents 6,859 new cases.

Mexico is the fourth country with the most deaths in the world behind the United States, Brazil and the United Kingdom, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.

Mexico began a gradual economic reopening in June, which according to Hugo López-Gatell, Undersecretary of Health and responsible for the strategy against the new coronavirus, always carries a risk of new cases.

In late May, López-Gatell said in an interview with AFP that the deaths could add up to 30,000 in Mexico if the containment measures were not taken. In a subsequent review, the official raised his forecasts and placed the death forecast at up to 35,000.
