MEXICO CITY (AP) — A referendum in Mexico on Sunday is going to cost the country about $25 million, few like the poorly written, yes-or-no question on the ballot, and the vote is being held in the middle of a third wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

"Because I grew up in Trinidad, it was a big thing," Heather Mark said. "When we were growing up, our mom would take

However, he said not enough are inoculated to “crush the outbreak” at this point. Fauci's warning comes days after the Ce
