On Sunday afternoon, October 17, the Ministry of Health (SSa) released the Daily Technical Report of COVID-19 in Mexico, in which the new figures on the advance of the coronavirus disease in Mexico were announced.

According to the federal agency, since the pandemic began, 3,757,056 accumulated cases of the new coronavirus have been reported, while 284,381 accumulated deaths have been registered.

With these data, in the last 24 hours, 1,993 new infections and 60 deaths were registered, the lowest figure reported by the agency since last July 3, the date in which the number of deaths rose to 42.

Active cases are considered to be those positive cases that started symptoms in the last 14 days, making it possible to identify the areas where there is greater viral activity and, consequently, an increase in transmission. In this sense, the entities with the highest number of active cases with the presence of SARS-Cov2 are the following: Mexico City (6,093); Guanajuato (3,727); State of Mexico (2,793); Tabasco (2,277) and Nuevo León, with 2,076 cases.

These entities represent 66% of the total accumulated cases in Mexico.

Confirmed cases show a higher prevalence in women, with 50.1% and the general average age is 39 years. In this sense, the SSa specified that in the last five weeks, most of the cases are present in the groups of 18 to 29 years, followed by the age groups of 30 to 39 years and 40 to 49 years.

According to the distribution by sex and age of confirmed deaths caused by COVID-19, the Secretariat reported that the prevalence of SARS-CoV 2 is 62% in men and emphasized that the average age of deaths from the coronavirus disease is 64 years old. At the last report, the states with the highest number of deaths are: Mexico City (51,763); State of Mexico (32,090); Jalisco (16,522); Puebla (15,020); Veracruz (13,904) and Nuevo León (12,878).
