Brando Gonzalez Ortiz cries after receiving the news of his 43-year-old mother Carmen Ortiz's death from the COVID-19 disease, outside the Iztapalapa General Hospital, in Mexico City, Sunday, May 3.

The Iztapalapa General Hospital is one the hospitals designated by health authorities to treat new coronavirus cases. According to the Johns Hopkins University, Mexico has more than 22,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and more than 2,000 deaths.

Health authorities expect the month of May to be the most difficult in the pandemic for Mexico, exacerbated by inequalities that mean some people will find it impossible to stay at home.

In Mexico City, where authorities expect infections to peak next week, workers will turn the Hernandez Rodriguez Formula 1 racecourse into a temporary hospital for COVID-19 patients. The paddocks and suites along the front straightaway will have eight hospital modules with 24 beds each. The pits will be used as offices for consultations.

Some of the world's most populous countries reported worrisome new peaks in infections Sunday, including India, which saw its biggest single-day jump yet.

Second in population only to China, India reported more than 2,600 new infections. In Russia, new cases exceeded 10,000 for the first time. The confirmed death toll in Britain climbed near that of Italy, the epicenter of Europe's outbreak, even though the U.K. population is younger than Italy's and Britain had more time to prepare before the pandemic hit.
