In Mexico, hospitals in the northern border city of Ciudad Juárez have reached capacity and began wait-listing patients amid a surge of COVID-19 cases.
Officials have imposed a nightly curfew and ordered the largely U.S.-owned factories known as maquiladoras to close on weekends.
Across the border, overtaxed hospitals in El Paso have been airlifting COVID patients to other cities in Texas.
