The number of confirmed and suspected coronavirus cases continued to rise in Mexico over the weekend.
The Mexican government announced on Monday that there are now 53 confirmed cases and 176 suspected cases in the country.
There is a case in nearly every state in the country. Experts believe that by the end of March these numbers will get much higher.
“This is the reality and these are the dates,” Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said. “The very moment and minute that we detect that we have entered the community transmission [stage], we will inform about it.”
