MEXICO CITY, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- Mexico's Health Ministry reported on Wednesday 10,335 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the country's total number of infections to 1,070,487.
The country recorded 858 more deaths in the past 24 hours, raising its COVID-19-related death toll to 103,597.
Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said Tuesday that the Latin American country may start COVID-19 vaccinations in December if regulatory institutions certify the effectiveness of related drugs.
Mexico is now in contact with firms working on "highly effective projects," including China's CanSino Biologics, the United States's Pfizer and Britain's AstraZeneca, Ebrard said at a press conference.
Mexico's COVID-19 death toll exceeded 100,000 on Thursday, becoming the fourth country in the world to reach the grim milestone after the United States, Brazil and India.
