Mexico considering restrictions on US border amid coronavirus fears


Recommended Posts



MEXICO CITY - Mexico could consider measures at its northern border to slow the spread of the coronavirus into its relatively unaffected territory, health officials said on Friday, with an eye to containing a US outbreak that has infected more than 2,000 people.

Mexico so far has confirmed 26 cases of the coronavirus, with no deaths. In the United States, 48 people have died.
Mexican Deputy Health Minister Hugo Lopez-Gatell said contagion from the United States was a threat.
"If it were technically necessary to consider mechanisms of restriction or stronger surveillance we would have to take into account not that Mexico would bring the virus to the United States, rather that the United States could bring it here," he told a news conference."
He did not provide details. A health ministry spokeswoman said she had no further information.
