MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s health ministry on Monday reported 4,973 new coronavirus cases and 342 additional deaths, bringing the country’s total cases to 395,489 and death toll to 44,022.

The figures were published earlier in the day by Johns Hopkins University.

Mexico has the fourth highest coronavirus death tally worldwide.

The government has said the real number of infected people is likely significantly higher than the confirmed cases.
