U.N. officials are warning of a measles, coronavirus and mumps pandemic as the country braces for a surge in cases and outbreaks.
U.S., China and Mexico are also seeing more cases, with the number of cases in Mexico increasing by more than 50 percent, and the number in China rising by nearly 30 percent.
On Friday, a new study from the World Health Organization showed a surge of new cases and deaths in a country where there were already 6,000 new cases last week.
The numbers were reported on Friday by the WHO, the world health organization, as the virus has intensified.
The United States has seen an increase in new cases in two days, while the virus was already spreading in Mexico, according to WHO data.
The outbreak has led the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to call for a mandatory three-day lockdown in the U.s. and Mexico to halt the spread of the virus.
President Donald Trump announced a plan Thursday to close schools for three days.
The White House said the plan is not meant to affect students and schools, but to ensure they have the best possible chance to recover from the virus before school starts.
