The land border between Mexico and the USA is closed for thirty days as of Saturday 31 March 2029, though it could be extended after that.

That means non-essential travel is not allowed into Mexico or the USA. Exceptions exist for medical appointments, students going to school or back, persons employed in essential services o the other side of the border, etc. Air travel is not affected at this time.

Some Mexican citizens have formed a citizens vigilante group taking action to interfere with American traffic crossing into the state of Sonora.

Air travel is unaffected at this time, but people returning to the USA detected with symptoms will likely have to quarantine.

in the moment they know they are at the peak? yeah, right. also, they have only 10% of the daily confirmations than the US and marginally fewer new daily cases than the US has daily deaths? methinks they are not robustly testing.... oh wait, neither is the US.

I believe a truer measure is that the crematoria and funeral parlors in CDMX are overwhelmed, with an excess mortality rate exceeding 100%. The funeral home data in Mexico City implies a 250% actual COVID mortality over what the government is reporting.

awful, but sounds much more realistic and not unlike what New York City experienced.
