At the Thursday night Coronavirus press briefing, Lopez-Gatell announced that the peak of the coronavirus pandemic in Mexico could occur in July. He also noted that if no social distancing measures had been implemented, Mexico would have had a "mega-curve" but the pandemic would have been over within 10-12 weeks.
Exactly 15 weeks have now passed since the first two cases were reported in Mexico and 12 weeks since the first death. Now, 133,974 Covid-19 cases have been confirmed and 15,944 people have died.
Of the total number of cases, 20,832 are considered active. There are 55,700 suspected cases and 381,139 people have been tested. Fewer than 2,900 per 1 million citizens in Mexico have been tested.
It is expected to last until October but it is possible that it could make a comeback with the arrival of influenza.
