Mexico becomes 4th country to hit 100,000 COVID-19 deaths

Mexico passed the 100,000 mark in COVID-19 deaths Thursday, becoming only the fourth country — behind the United States, Brazil and India — to do so. Mexico resembles a divided country, where some people are so unconcerned they won't wear masks, while others are so scared they descend into abject terror at the first sign of shortness of breath.

Mexico becomes 4th country to hit 100,000 COVID-19 deaths

Mexico passed the 100,000 mark in COVID-19 deaths Thursday, becoming only the fourth country — behind the United States, Brazil and India — to do so. José Luis Alomía Zegarra, Mexico's director of epidemiology, announced that Mexico had 100,104 confirmed COVID-19 deaths.
