Understanding Mexico's Covid Statistics
Thank you for all you do for the community, Glenn. It’s a tremendous service you offer and I commend you.
Of course the COVID-19 deaths are caused by COVID-19. Those willing to so glibly discount the enormity of this pandemic, even in this forum, probably take their lead from someone in Washington, D.C. who shall go unnamed. They are part of the problem rather than being part of the solution.
We in México are in a very dangerous period right now and we’d do well to assume that contagion is at its highest levels yet in SMA. The numbers of deaths due to COVID-19 are vastly undercounted both here and in the US. And with even less testing here than in the US, and therefore less contract tracing and other wise public health practices being followed, we can expect that it will get much worse before it gets better. Please, please, please friends: do not be lulled into carelessness by those who would minimize the crisis we are going through. Let’s live through this.
