Mexico's president says nation handling COVID-19 pandemic better than US

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Tuesday that his country is doing better than the United States in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, even though Mexico’s per capita death rate is probably higher and the country has vaccinated less than 1% of its population.López Obrador said Tuesday that comparing countries is in "bad taste," but went on to say "the most powerful nation on earth, our neighbor, did worse than us."The Mexican government's "estimated" death toll from COVID-19 is now about 201,000.

The United States death toll is around 500,000, but its population is 2.6 times larger.Moreover, estimates of excess deaths in Mexico since the start of the pandemic suggest the COVID-19 toll is now well.
