MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) - Mexico’s confirmed coronavirus cases rose to 753,090 on Friday, according to updated data from the health ministry, along with a total reported death toll of 78,492.

Authorities reported 4,775 new cases and 414 deaths on Friday, but the true figures are likely significantly higher due to little testing.
