In the particular case of the North American country, deaths of younger groups stand out old.

The distribution of deaths There have been no noticeable changes since mid-March, when the first fatality from this condition occurred: the median age is 57 years and the range is 26 to 92 years.

As age increases, mortality also. However, the Undersecretary of Health, Hugo López-Gatell, the main government health worker since the start of the pandemic, indicated that, despite the fact that the distribution of deaths between age ranges "is more or less as expected", "there is something that is striking".

The official was quick to point out that "the most probable explanation for this situation" is the "immense burden of chronic diseases that our country has." And it is that, among the confirmed deaths, the 44.33% suffered from hypertension; 39.69% had diabetes and the 37.63% of fatalities were also obese.

That is why, beyond the fact that those over 65 accumulated the highest number of deaths, with almost 70 of them in that range, followed by those between 55 and 59 years old, with almost 40 cases; then, Above 30 deaths, there are those who were between 50 and 54 years old and, just above 20 people, those who were between 45 and 49 years old..

That is why the Mexican health authorities had already launched a campaign focused on younger populations not to neglect. "Do not trust, I am addressing you young men and women, do not trust, this is a serious epidemic, do not take it lightly”López-Gatell said in a pre-recorded video published on Wednesday.
