The local cities and states don't have to do anything when the President shuts down all international travel. Its what Taiwan did at the start and THEY NEVER HAD TO LOCKDOWN ANYTHING WITHIN TAIWAN. WHY? They were able to limit the amount of virus that penetrated the country and then had enough Testing and contact tracing ready to go to isolate the virus in any place it did penetrate. Taiwan's early action has allowed people there to continue normal life. Non-essential business's are open, children are going to school. We had an opportunity to be like Taiwan, but TRUMP missed the boat.International travel has not hurt Cali.Its the President's job to shut down foreign travel which he failed to do. The outbreak in New York came from people traveling from Europe to New York. That's why the President should have shut down all foreign travel, not just travel from China. Also the northeast has greater population density which plays a role is spreading this thing further. New York City is the hub for world travel, then combined with the population density within 300 miles of New York City and that explains the problem. Only way to prevent that is to STOP foreign travel EARLY.You don't seem to be interested in the facts......Look at New Zealand, only one death from Coronavirus. Why can't the United States protect its people as well as New Zealand has protected its people?Canada is getting crushed too. We lost massive jobs and Ontario lost over 40% of all jobs alone, even as the Premier tries to assure us our horse and buggy economy will recover.
We were already in dire straits before this virus, and they has made it so that people who apply for help must have made a MINIMUM in earnings, whereas the U.S uses a MAXIMUM ($99k). This means we have about 3-4x more people in desperate need in Canada with no option, they will just lose their homes, be evicted, not find work.
In an already destroyed economy this is horrible. Our leaders have told us to expect this to be the norm for at least a year! Meaning, we will have full blown communism in place while you are going back to work and crushing the global economies again.
Trump deserves some credit. If you want to place blame on a virus that came from Communist China, blame the Governor or Mayor of NY. If you don't think they are to blame, how is Trump?
1. Today ==> 2,000 deaths
2. New York + New Jersey ==> 1,000 deaths
3. Michigan ==> 200 deaths.
4. Penn + Con + Mass = 275 deaths.
75% of those deaths are in five states and it has pretty much been that way since we started (not always Mich...but NY & NJ for sure).
That leaves 500 for the rest of the country.
Many (like 30+) are still below 100 total deaths
Nobody in the west cares.
Especially not Wyoming (0 deaths).
So, blame it on Cuomo, De Blahzio and the wench from Michigan.
That's why JAPAN, TAIWAN, SINGAPORE and SOUTH KOREA are doing so well relative to the United States despite their greater population densities. Trump needed to shut down foreign Travel early, like late January. If he had, we could be in the same situation as TAIWAN right now.
International travel has not hurt D.C.
International travel has not hurt a lot of other places.
The leaders of New York (AS HAS BEEN WIDELY SHOWN) purposely told people to get out and party after they were warned.
The people of New York listened.
The leaders of New York caught on.
The people of New York didn't listen.
They just barely shut down public parks.
So, you can whine all you want about Trump.
New York is dying because of others.
Time to climb out of your PMSNBC bubble and come to grips with reality.
It was Donald Trump and FOX NEWS that made fun of the virus and its threat all month long during February.
