Mexico is considering closing its border to stop Americans bringing coronavirus into its country

Oh the irony…

From Daily Mail: For once, the conversation over closing the US-Mexico border is being driven by Mexican health officials who say they are considering shutting out Americans to keep coronavirus out of their country.

There are currently more than 2,000 cases of the virus in the US and it is spreading rapidly. Forty-three people have died from it.

By contrast in Mexico, there have only been 16 confirmed cases and no deaths.

At a press conference on Friday, health minister Hugo Lopez-Gatell said: ‘Mexico wouldn’t bring the virus to the United States, rather the United States would bring it here. The possible flow of coronavirus would come from the north to the south. If it were technically necessary, we would consider mechanisms of restriction or stronger surveillance,’ he said.

Trump has said little on the subject of coronavirus in Mexico.

Unlike several Latin American countries, Mexico has yet to take measures such as closing schools or banning entry to people coming from places with high numbers of coronavirus cases.

However, the private Tecnologico de Monterrey university said on Thursday it would suspend academic and classes from next week until further notice, while Mexico’s National Autonomous University (UNAM) said it would tighten preventative measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

I find it interesting that *many* folks are now more open to the ideas of minimizing/restricting travel to/from areas where Covid-19 is spreading as a way of *containing* it to that region rather than allowing wide-spread infection and possible death. But many of those same people declared similar policies of minimizing /restricting such travel to/from places with high Islamic terrorist activity to be racist, anti-Islamic, or xenophobic. Just as gays declared policies against blood banks accepting donations from homosexuals during the AIDS epidemic as being nothing more than “homophobia”. And refused to follow admonishments by the CDC et al. to… Read more »

This whole thing, even if not caused on purpose, is being monitored and analyzed by the US Government if not the deep state as well. Just to see how easily a population can be manipulated. We’ve never seen this kind of action/reaction over an illness. Everything closing, cancling, postponing. I call BS.

As I recall, sometime before the government shutdown in Dec 2018, thousands of illegal aliens rushed the southern border—border patrol agents reported large numbers of people in that group had contagious diseases, and large numbers of women, children, and yes, even BABIES were repeatedly raped on their journey northward , by the criminal illegal aliens seeking to invade America
