In addition, 18 deaths were reported in the entity with a total of 11,206 deaths during the pandemic that continues more than a year after the containment measures were implemented.
The Federal Ministry of Health indicated in a report that the excess mortality in Jalisco is 64.5%, which means that there are actually at least 18,554 deaths attributable to the virus since the beginning of the pandemic.

The lag in figures at the local level is even greater than that of the national average, which is 61.4%, where, based on the federal government report, there are more than 322,000 deaths from the coronavirus.
The excess mortality is obtained by comparing the deaths in a specific year with those that would have been expected based on data from previous years.
