People get to the streets in Mexico City following a quake on June 23, 2020 amid the COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic. – A 7.1 magnitude quake was registered Tuesday in the south of Mexico, according to the Mexican National Seismological Service.

The US Geological Survey reported that the quake struck with a magnitude of 7.4, at a depth of 23 kilometers. After initially publishing a reading of 7.1, the Mexican Seismological Service revised its figure to 7.5.
