However, the official death toll could be much higher, as it should be remembered that on March 28 the federal government reported in its report on the “Excess mortality” that the country had registered 294,287 deaths associated with the coronavirus until February 13, after analyzing death certificates.
According to the update of the official technical document consulted on the agency’s website, the country has 26,293 active cases, that is, people who had signs and symptoms of the disease in the last 14 days (March 21 to April 03).

In that sense, Mexico City it is the entity with the highest number of active cases, followed by the State of Mexico, Guanajuato and Puebla; together they concentrate the 58% of all active cases in the country.
By contrast, Campeche, Chiapas, Nayarit and Colima They are the states with the least amount of active cases, with 89, 89, 64 and 63, respectively.
This is still reflected in the new colors of the epidemiological traffic light that came into force since last Monday and will be in force until April 11, where for the third time in a row, no state is painted in color “Red”(Maximum risk of contagion).
In color “verde”(Low risk) there are seven entities: Coahuila, Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Jalisco, Nayarit, Chiapas and Campeche.
In “yellow”(Moderate risk) 18 entities: Baja California, Baja California Sur, Sinaloa, Durango, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosí, Colima, Aguascalientes, Michoacán, Guerrero, Nuevo León, Tlaxcala, Quintana Roo and Guanajuato; Sonora, Oaxaca, Morelos and Tabasco are added.
