The outbreak in those countries is only getting worse.
Mexico reopened several sectors of its economy including the mining, construction, and tourist industries.
On the same day, the country surpassed ten thousand virus-related deaths becoming the seventh nation to do so.
The country has at least 93,450 cases, yet officials have pushed ahead with easing the lockdown with a plan dubbed the "The new normal."
