COVID-19: Mexico records world's highest health worker mortality
Al Jazeera, 12 Jan 2021
Mexico has asked the United States to extend restrictions of non-essential travel at the border.
It comes as healthcare workers in Mexico plea for people to follow the rules to help keep them safe.
According to the government's own data, almost 2,500 people employed in the nation's health sector have died since the start of the outbreak.
Hospitals are nearing full capacity in several cities.
