Mexico's Covid-19 death toll reaches 30,000 as it vaults over France for the world's fifth-highest.

Saturday's tally of 523 deaths pushed Mexico's coronavirus toll to 30,366, giving the nation the 5th highest Covid-19 death toll in the world, and the 2nd highest in South America (behind Brazil).

This comes as Mexico recorded its highest spike in new infections, with 6,914 new cases being reported by officials. The spike brings the number of confirmed cases to 252,165.

It is believed that the total number of infections and casualties is far greater than officially reported due to an inadequate amount of testing.
