The US, India and Brazil remain top three worst-hit countries.

The US has confirmed more than 200,000 deaths due to Covid-19.

Mexico’s case fatality rate* has declined since it reported its all-time high at 12.40 cases per million population on 27 June.

However, Mexico’s case fatality rate at 10.52 cases per million population on 22 September was much higher than Colombia’s or Peru’s.
