MEXICALI, B.C. (KYMA, KECY)-With each passing day Mexicali sees an increase in coronavirus cases and deaths caused by the virus, as it continues to spread.

Despite the fact that health officials in Baja California reiterate the community to stay home and take social distancing serious to prevent the spread, deaths continue to rise in Mexicali.

Baja California now sees a total of 65 deaths with a total of 538 confirmed cases.

On Thursday, health officials confirmed 216 cases, 122 suspected cases, and 22 deaths in Mexicali.
