Mexico City, Sept 12, 2020, SPA -- Mexico reported 5,674 new confirmed cases of coronavirus infection and 421 additional fatalities on Saturday, bringing its totals to 663,973 infections and 70,604 deaths, Reuters cited the country's Health Ministry data as updating.

The government has said the real number of infected people is likely to be significantly higher than the confirmed cases. So far, Mexico's death toll from the pandemic is the fourth highest globally, and the 13th highest on a per capita basis, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University.

The spread of the virus has ravaged an already slumping economy, which is now seen contracting by up to 13% this year, the deepest downturn since the 1930s-era Great Depression.
