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

Pandemic ravages Mexico. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, whose public statements have rarely acknowledged the gravity of Mexico’s outbreak, began the month urging Mexicans to forgo the holiday parties that stretch through December into January.

Families across Mexico scaled down Christmas festivities to avoid the spread of coronavirus, while others spent the holiday alone after having lost loved ones to the pandemic that has killed more than 120,000 in Mexico this year.

Despite having promised to demilitarize public security, during his two years in office President López Obrador (widely known as AMLO) has instead expanded the powers of the Mexican armed forces beyond national security tasks. The recent release from a U.S. jail of General Salvador Cienfuegos, the former head of Mexico’s Ministry of Defense (SEDENA), on foreign relations’ grounds tells us something about the military’s new role in the government.

Regarding deaths, a 7% increase was reported by COVID-19, compared to the previous week.
This increase is due to the cold season, since "the number of acute respiratory infections always increases."

Since 2000, almost three-quarters of the 119 journalists murdered in Mexico were killed by firearms, an investigation by the Cartel Project has found – and most of those weapons are imported.

Mexico’s health ministry on Tuesday reported 11,006 new confirmed cases of coronavirus infection and 800 additional fatalities, bringing the total in the country to 1,193,255 cases and 110,874 deaths.

Corrupt Mexican officials have helped drug cartels in the country obtain state-of-the-art spyware which can be used to hack mobile phones, according to a senior DEA official.
As many as 25 private companies – including the Israeli company NSO Group and the Italian firm Hacking Team – have sold surveillance software to Mexican federal and state police forces, but there is little or no regulation of the sector – and no way to control where the spyware ends up, said the officials.

Mexico aims to begin the COVID-19 vaccination process for 125,000 people in December.
Mexico’s Deputy Health Minister Hugo Lopez Gatell said Mexico will prioritize health workers and elderly people to receive the first 250,000 doses of the two-shot Pfizer vaccine in December and January, with the second phase of Mexico’s vaccination program slated to begin in February.

American politicians and Mexican media and the American press has been quick to tie López Obrador’s actions to his coziness with Trump—and highlight Mexico sharing a stance with Brazil, Russia, and North Korea, all of which have yet to recognize Biden’s win.
