    Mexico Confirms First Case of Coronavirus, Warns of Likely Second

    Mexican health officials revealed that two males tested positive for the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). One was confirmed through two separate tests while the second man awaits the results of his second exam. Several other patients are in observed isolation.


    Mexico’s Undersecretary of Health Hugo Lopez Gatel first announced on Thursday night the first case, claiming one individual tested positive and was waiting for final results on the second exam.

    On Friday morning, Lopez Gatel joined President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to confirm that second test was positive and confirmed the Coronavirus was now in Mexico. The official revealed there was a second case showing the initial positive test result.


    According to health officials, the fully confirmed case is a 35-year-old man who traveled to Italy within the past month, returning on February 22. He started to show symptoms one day after his return. In Italy, he reportedly came into direct contact with an Italian citizen who lives in Malaysia. Upon his return to Mexico, the 35-year-old came in direct contact with a 41-year-old man from the state of Hidalgo who later traveled to Sinaloa, where he is under quarantine in a hotel.



    During the conference, officials revealed the men show slight symptoms and that their relatives are also subject to seclusion and testing.

    Mexico among 8 more countries to report first confirmed coronavirus cases


    February 28, 2020

    By Amanda Woods



    Eight countries reported their first confirmed coronavirus cases Friday — including Mexico — as a World Health Organization spokesman said the deadly bug could reach most “if not all countries around the world.”

    Mexico’s assistant health secretary, Hugo Lopez-Gatell, said there is one male patient in Mexico City and another man in the northern state of Sinaloa.

    While a second test is still pending on the Sinaloa case, “we are treating this as confirmed,” Lopez-Gatell said, adding that neither person is seriously ill.

    One of the men had been in contact with someone who traveled to the northern Italian region battling a severe outbreak.
    Nigeria also became the first country in sub-Saharan Africa to confirm a case.
    Nigerian officials said the infected person was an Italian citizen who entered the country Monday on a Turkish Airlines flight from Milan through Istanbul, according to The Guardian.

    The man stayed at a hotel near the airport that evening and then continued to his workplace in neighboring Ogun state in the southwestern part of the country, the paper reported.

    He was treated two days later at his company’s medical facility before health practitioners there notified government biosecurity officers, who transferred him Thursday to a containment facility in Yaba, Lagos.

    He is described as clinically stable with no serious symptoms, authorities told the outlet.

    Wales, New Zealand, Estonia, Denmark, Netherlands and Lithuania have also reported their first infections, according to reports. In the majority of those cases, the patients had recently traveled to Italy.

    “The outbreak is getting bigger,” WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier told reporters in Geneva, Switzerland, on Friday. “The scenario of the coronavirus reaching multiple countries, if not all countries around the world, is something we have been looking at and warning against since quite a while.”

    WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus tweeted Friday that “the continued increase in the number of COVID-19 cases, & the number of affected countries over the last few days, are clearly of concern.

    “Our epidemiologists have been monitoring these developments continuously, and we have now increased our assessment of the risk of spread and the risk of impact of #COVID19 to very high at a global level,” he said.

    Most cases “can still be traced to known contacts or clusters of cases,” the WHO official said.

    “We do not see evidence as yet that the virus is spreading freely in communities,” he said. “As long as that’s the case, we still have a chance of containing this coronavirus, if robust action is taken to detect cases early, isolate and care for patients and trace contacts.”

    TRUMP NEEDS TO IMPLEMENT THIS SUSPENSION BY PROCLAMATION EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY!!!



    Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) gives the President of the United States broad authority to implement immigration restrictions by proclamation.


    The statute allows the President
    to suspend the entry of any aliens or of a class of aliens or place restrictions on the entry of a class of aliens temporarily if he or she determines that the entry of such aliens would be detrimental to the U.S. interest
