However, if the analysis is done per 100,000 inhabitants, the country ranks ninth with an average of 234.78.

This also does not mean that Mexico is the country with the most deaths associated with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, since the first place is still occupied by the United States with 827,825 deaths.

The fatality rate figure is obtained by dividing the total number of registered cases by the number of people who have died.

According to the latest reports, Mexico has a historical accumulation of 3,993,464 cases and 299,581 deaths.

While the United States, for example, has registered 56,238,210 cases and 827,834, which gives a mortality rate of 1.5 percent.
