Mexico’s government has revealed the country’s Covid-19 death toll is over 321,000 – 60% more than the 201,429 total deaths officially reported as of Saturday.

According to a new government report, from the start of the pandemic through February 14, 2021, there were 294,287 deaths from Covid-19.

Since then, there have been 27,223 additional deaths, according to a CNN analysis of health ministry data, bringing the total to over 321,000.

If the data in this report is correct, Mexico’s death toll would be higher than Brazil’s and would place the country as second worst hit in the world, following the United States.
