Mexico is yet reaching its infection peak but the government is still pushing ahead with its plans to reopen the country.

Mexico is rapidly becoming one of the worst-affected countries from the novel coronavirus in the world.
With more than 15,000 deaths, it officially has the seventh-highest global death toll, according to a tracker by John Hopkins University. The government has said the real number of infected people is significantly higher than the official count, according to Reuters.
With a weak health system, high poverty rates, and public officials who long chose to ignore the severity of the virus, the country is now feeling the brunt of it. 
But as the numbers continue to climb, the country still plans to gradually reopen its economy as it faces mounting pressure from US officials to power up factories operating at the US-Mexico border.
