In May, the Times found that the Mexican government was not reporting hundreds, possibly thousands, of deaths from the coronavirus in Mexico City, according to officials and confidential data.

The New York Times is engaged in an effort to track details about cases and deaths around the world, collecting information from local governments and other sources around the clock. The numbers in this article are being updated several times a day based on the latest information our journalists have gathered.

The New York Times has found that official tallies in the United States and in more than a dozen other countries have undercounted deaths during the coronavirus outbreak because of limited testing availability.

About the data

The Times has identified the following reporting anomalies or methodology changes in the data:

Oct. 5: On Oct. 5, health authorities in Mexico reported a jump in cases and deaths due to changing their methodology for counting Covid-19 cases and deaths.

Governments often revise data or report a single-day large increase in cases or deaths from unspecified days without historical revisions, which can cause an irregular pattern in the daily reported figures. The Times is excluding these anomalies from seven-day averages when possible.
