Mexican state minister dies after being hospitalized for COVID-19

The health minister of the Mexican state of Chihuahua, Dr. Jesus Grajeda, has died, Chihuahua’s governor said on Sunday, nearly two weeks after Grajeda was hospitalized with COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

“I have no words to express all my feelings in this moment, except for profound sadness,” Governor Javier Corral wrote on Facebook.

With more than 390,000 confirmed cases and 43,680 deaths, Mexico has the world’s fourth-highest death toll from the coronavirus.
