With 65,241 confirmed Covid-19 fatalities (as of September 1, 2020), the pandemic has hit Mexico particularly hard. Mexico’s death toll has already exceeded levels originally conceived as “catastrophic” by local health authorities. But, what’s scary is how many Covid-19 patients in Mexico are dying before being connected to ventilators. According to Mexico’s publicly available epidemiological oversight database, only 20% of the country’s Covid-19 patients who died were intubated. An astounding 51,924 Covid-19 patients never received ventilator treatment before they died. Right now in Mexico thousands of Covid-19 patients are dying every week without access to the type of delicate intensive care that could have saved their lives.
