Mexico acknowledges higher death toll

Mexican health authorities acknowledge the country’s true death toll from the pandemic is far higher than previously reported, saying there were 193,170 “excess” deaths this year through Sept. 26. Of those, 139,153 are now judged to be attributable to COVID-19. Mexico’s official, test-confirmed death toll is about 89,000, but officials previously said many people didn’t get tested or the tests were mishandled.

Authorities had previously presented an estimated death toll of 103,882, after taking into account mishandled tests.
