Mexican travel restrictions to resume on Sunday
MEXICO CITY — Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Saturday ordered travel restrictions on Sunday and Sunday evening as a result of the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
The restrictions will include a one-day limit on international flights and two-hour limits on public transportation, he said in a statement on Twitter.
He also ordered the suspension of border patrols and curfews in the southwestern state of Guerrero and other parts of the country, the statement said.
Mexico has been struggling to contain the spread of the virus, which is linked to travelers who have come from outside the country for medical treatment, including those from countries including the United States, Britain, Canada, France and Germany.
More than 1,000 people have died in the epidemic, with at least 16,000 being infected.
