Posted May 18, 2019 08:16:49 A tourist resort in the Mexican state of Michoacán is in the final stages of being closed by authorities because of a coronavirus outbreak.
The resort in Mexico’s northern state of Jalisco has been under a lockdown since early April.
The outbreak has caused hundreds of thousands of people to leave their homes, and hundreds of flights to and from the resort have been canceled.
Mexico’s Ministry of Health said that the airport was not functioning as planned and that the resort would be closed for 90 days from April 25 to May 4.
The Ministry said it had notified the United States and Mexico’s partners on the ground that it would be closing the airport.
The United States, which operates its own air carrier, United Airlines, had already canceled flights to the resort on April 25.
Mexico is the third country in the Americas to be hit by a coronacovirus pandemic.
The other two countries are the United Kingdom and Australia.
The World Health Organization has said that there has been a dramatic increase in cases across Mexico, with more than 10,000 new cases reported in the country in a span of two weeks.
More than 3,000 people are still being treated in hospitals.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta said it is working to isolate and treat patients infected with the virus.
The Mexican government has also said that Mexico will have to close the entire resort for the entire month of May.
The closure was announced in a statement on Tuesday by the Health Ministry, which said the decision was taken to avoid a large number of visitors.
