El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele on Monday accused Mexico of allowing a dozen confirmed coronavirus cases to board a flight due to leave Mexico City for San Salvador, and said he had suspended all passenger air travel with immediate effect.

Bukele, who made the assertion on Twitter, did not provide evidence or more detail about the situation.

Without explaining how he knew, Bukele tweeted that “the El Salvador airport runway is closed to non-cargo aircraft until further notice. The planes on the way will have to change flights”.

Regarding the flight from Mexico, Bukele said in the Tweet that it was an Avianca flight, leaving Mexico at 4:00 pm and that it would arrive in El Salvador at 6:50 pm”.

According to him, it would bring 12 cases of the COVID19 and “The plane will not be able to enter the country. I ask all the people who think to board that flight, NOT  TO DO IT”.

Minutes later, Bukele retweeted this message from Avianca Central America.

“Flight AV431 operating the Mexico – El Salvador route has been canceled. It has NOT been boarded and passengers are being duly informed.”

Mexico’s Undersecretary of Foreign Relations, Maximiliano Reyes, wrote in response to Bukele:

“Mr. President, with all due respect, we would like to know what are the sources of your information? The Government of Mexico has always acted with absolute responsibility in this situation, including preventively, being pioneers in the region.”

For his part, Mexico’s Foreign Relations Minister Ebrard C. also tweeted Bukele:

“President Bukele: the Avianca flight you mentioned was canceled because all the flights to San Salvador were suspended. Could you share with us what are the 12 cases of coronavirus you mention and where they were confirmed? Is it responsible in this and in any other case?”

Two hours later, the Minister tweeted Bukele with:

“Mr. President, we checked the passengers of the AVIANCA flight and I can confirm that they are healthy. The health authority found no coronavirius, including the 12 Salvadoran youths who were wearing face masks. I know you will be happy. Kind regards.”
