[Ed. – Mexico just detected the first cases there this week. People are complaining on social media (i.e., that this would be a biased reaction), especially since the U.S. already has many more cases than Mexico. Canada does as well. But the U.S. and Canada also had far, far more passengers than Mexico did arriving from China until a month ago. Both nations with high air traffic from China have been taking precautions for weeks. Meanwhile, Mexico has a high incidence of unscreened migrants — including illegal aliens from China — who could be carrying the virus undetected and infecting others in Mexico.]
The Trump administration is considering imposing entry restrictions at the U.S.-Mexico border to control the spread of the coronavirus in the United States, according to two U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials.
Mexico’s government said on Friday it had detected three cases of coronavirus infection in three men who had all recently traveled to Italy, making the country the second in Latin America to register the fast-spreading virus.
The concern over containing the virus at the southern U.S. border comes as the Trump administration also weighs possible restrictions on the entry of travelers from South Korea, Italy and Japan.
