MEXICO CITY, July 14 (Xinhua) -- The Mexican Health Ministry on Tuesday reported 7,051 new coronavirus infections and 836 more fatalities, with both being among the highest figures the country has registered.
The recent increasing trend following gradual and partial resumptions have halted the government's plan to announce weekly updates of reopening in economy and social life.
The country so far has accumulated a total of 311,486 confirmed cases and 36,327 deaths. It sought to extend restrictions on non-essential border travel with the United States for an additional 30 days.
Also on Tuesday, the health authorities said the color-coded national risk and reopening levels would be updated every two weeks, instead of every week.
As the testing capacity grows, the government has estimated that the real number of infections is likely higher than the current confirmed cases.
