In international news, the coronavirus death toll in Mexico has topped 35,000. Mexico now has the fourth-highest death toll after the United States, Brazil and the United Kingdom. On Saturday, the Mexican government held a ceremony in Mexico City honoring the repatriation of 245 urns containing the remains of Mexicans who died of the coronavirus in the United States. This is Jorge Islas López, Mexico’s consul general in New York.
Jorge Islas López: “It’s a sad day, because 250 of our compatriots who died are arriving in Mexico. The majority of them were alone and isolated as a result of them fulfilling their duty and their work to sustain their families in both the United States and in Mexico.”
