Protesters in Mexico block lanes at Arizona border crossing to demand stricter coronavirus screenings, (405 confirmed cases)
As of Wednesday afternoon, Arizona's Department of Health Services has confirmed more than 400 cases [CSSE: 401], including at least six deaths resulting from the coronavirus. All four Arizona border counties confirmed additional cases Wednesday, including Santa Cruz County, which includes Nogales.
Some of the signs asked U.S. residents to "stay at home." Others called on Mexico President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to step up controls and restrictions along the U.S.-Mexico border to contain the spread of COVID-19.
The demands call for a temporary ban on visits for tourism and minor medical procedures in Mexico for both U.S. citizens as well as Mexicans living in the U.S. The group is asking for Mexican health officials to step up screenings of everybody crossing the border for symptoms of COVID-19. The protesters emphasized the risk to border communities if health officials don't properly screen all migrants that U.S. border officials are deporting or sending back into Mexico.
