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.
