« on: March 12, 2020, 01:52:27 pm »
Wow.....first the NBA cancels its season because 1 guy tested positive and now the USA and Europe and closed for travel.

Man, I hope the NHL doesn't do this. It's Bruins time!

Are you saying that nobody can travel into the USA by plane?

The UK and Ireland are in Europe and can still travel.

Not going to make any difference.  Too late from trump.  If he wasn't reading from a prepared statement on his teleprompter you'd hear what he really thinks about this.  I'm sure Korea has not banned (bar China) flights from other countries and once it arrived here has instead focussed on sorting it in-house and has pretty much got it under control, mainly through testing the shit out of people.  Would banning flights from Sweden make a difference?  Course not.

At last the penny has dropped and Trump gets it but its too'late for containment from outside the US. They've been getting community spread  inside the US for at least a week or so but still don't ave enough  testing  to mitigate  effectively.

Dr. Brian Monahan, the attending physician of Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court, said he expects 70 million to 150 million people in the United States will become infected with COVID-19, NBC News reported Wednesday, citing two sources.

Nobody, but that's beside the point.  The way to mitigate and prevent that 150 million blow out of cases starts with testing so authorities can track and isolate cases. Without adequate testing this becomes challenging. Here'e a comparison to give an indication of the problem.

Isn't it lucky that is also where trump has golf courses.  Rightly, his airtime announcement yesterday has been well and truly ripped to pieces.  Anyone who doesn't describe him or his administration as a car crash is denying what is right in front of their eyes and ears.

Ronnie, you said in a previous post you are well educated in politics.

And here you are saying that POTUS Trump has not included The United Kingdom and Ireland in a travel suspension is because, wait for it...

'Trump has golf courses there'

We know you don't like him, that's fine. But your hatred is massively clouding your judgement here.

Okay, so how about: They're white people who (mainly) speak English, like Trump--and Stephen Miller, who apparently penned a significant hunk of the speech and policy.
Mr. C is not a bad person, in fact is quite a good person here. One of the best people on this forum if you really look at it

Looking forward to how the Trumpists spin this one.

You're exactly right about Stephen Miller's fingerprints being all over this.

I didn't say I was 'well-educated', I merely mentioned it was my degree so therefore I have an interest in it.

trump has three struggling resorts in the UK and Ireland.  Not sure if you've noticed but he doesn't do anything that doesn't benefit him and his brand even in the midst of a serious problem in the US that needs leadership.  A 30-day ban would stop any travel and money going to said resorts.  It really isn't that hard to connect those particular dots from his ridiculous 'foreign virus' speech yesterday, which as Mr C wrote was written by miller, and was his second speech from behind the resolute desk, the first being about him building the wall with Mexico.  See the trend there?

There is simply no 'clouding' of my judgement, you can see for yourself.   :undecided:
