Mexico is considering closing its border to stop Americans bringing coronavirus into its country as US case count passes 2,000
From The Daily Mail, by Reporter Jennifer Smith, 13 March 2020.
Here is the lede plus one:
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.It is good to see that in this first diverse world that some nations see the value of borers.

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.
