Now to those new concerns on the border. Covid-19 cases are climbing in Mexico. Ian Pannell joins us now from Mexico City with more. Good morning, Ian. Reporter: Yeah, good morning, Michael. That's right, rising cases and concerns here in Mexico. Now, although that land border is technically closed, we're seeing images of long lines in both directions and people still able to hop on a plane and travel by air. Here in Mexico, the death toll continues to mount with the number of reported cases now topping 68,000. This cemetery used to bury around five people a day. Now it's at capacity, 24 hours a day, at least 25 bodies, and this is just the latest covid-19 victim to be entered. There are now spikes in border cities like Tijuana just across from San Diego. Mexican officials believe travelers from the U.S. Are bringing the virus into the country, a source of anxiety for some like this intensive care unit doctor. There's too much traffic at the crossing and it makes me afraid, she says. We're going to have another wave of covid cases in a couple of weeks. We've been talking to Mexico's chief 'em deemologist, Mexico's Dr. Fauci. He's telling us the country is now in the peak but it will be here for a couple of weeks, but those rising number of cases in Tijuana and across the border in San Diego will make it much harder for both countries to try and contain this spread. Ian Pannell in Mexico City, our thanks to you.
