Deaths in Mexico from the COVID-19 pandemic have crossed 35,000 with the Latin American country overtaking Italy for the world’s fourth-highest total deaths.

Mexico on Sunday recorded 276 additional deaths and 4,482 new infections to bring its COVID-19 death toll to 35,006, with 299,750 confirmed cases and 184,764 recoveries.

It trails the United States, Brazil and the United Kingdom in total deaths caused by COVID-19.

The government has faced criticism for reopening the economy too soon and the number of cases is expected to rise in the coming days as restrictions affecting small businesses and restaurants are relaxed.
