Mexico City: 20,535 COVID-19 deaths, 2 times official toll

An official says Mexico City suffered 20,535  ‘excess deaths’ attributable to COVID-19 between April and August, almost double the number reported in the official death toll of 11,318

“These are figures that describe a tragedy,” Merino wrote.

Merino did specify how the city had assigned that number of excess deaths to COVID-19, but city officials have been leading an effort to review death certificates to determine how many untested people had probably died of coronavirus.

It was also unclear whether test-confirmed cases were included in the excess-death figures.
