13 Jan 2021 / 09:20 H.

    MEXICO CITY, Jan 12 (Reuters) - Mexico reported 14,395 new confirmed coronavirus cases and 1,314 more fatalities on Tuesday, according to the health ministry, bringing its total to 1,556,028 infections and 135,682 deaths.

    The real number of infected people and deaths is likely significantly higher than the official count, the ministry has said, due to little testing. (Reporting by Anthony Esposito; Editing by Himani Sarkar)
