The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) granted Mexico $3 million to help with the impacts of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), carry out research, and help migrants along the border. The money comes at a time when Mexico surpassed 51,000 coronavirus-related deaths and climbed to number three on the list of nations with the most fatalities.
