    We are marshaling the full power of the federal government and the private sector to protect the American people. This is the most aggressive and comprehensive effort to confront a foreign virus in modern history.

    On January 31, 2020, in response to Trump's China travel ban, here is what Joe Biden said – “We have, right now, a crisis with the coronavirus,” Biden said in Iowa Friday. “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science.” "

    Seriously Joe? Go away. Thank God we have a President that takes ACTION based on advice from scientists and health professionals. Otherwise, we would be like ITALY today!

    Coronavirus is not that big of a deal . Out of the 130,000 cases 68,000 people have recovered and only about 5,000 have died. Very unlikely that a healthy human will die from the weak disease. PSA: You’re not gonna die!

    He is restricting travel from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

    But he is not restricting travel from the UK or Ireland which today announced it will shut down its schools.

    I wonder why.

    Oh….I know…HIS FREAKING GOLF CLUBS!!!

    Mica & Joe: Thank you for keeping Americans informed You are absolutely right! He did not even address OUR college children who are studying abroad and how to handle the situation. They are scared Some are being told to get a flight or change a flight and right now that is not as easy as it sounds! Some students have been told your dorm will close on Fri or Sat. Where do they go if they still can't get a flight? What do they do once they arrive back here? Should they go to their family doctors and obviously call before going. However, I would assume they should quarrantine for 14 days, ,but what if someone they live with has an autoimmune disease or are older?? We need answers….we need better than this!!

    We're playing hide-n-seek with a f#&king virus. We do not have enough tests. Those who can get tested have to meet certain criteria. Some tests are missing the reconstituting agent, so are worthless.

  • Reply Kimberley Hosmer March 12, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    Thank goodness Trump is waking up to the scope of the problem. Hopefully this will mean he takes his advisers seriously and will follow their lead on this. Calling it a “foreign” virus and trying to pretend that it is not already a domestic problem is counterproductive.
    The focus needs to be on getting clear, reliable information to the people.
    What symptoms to look for,
    Fever, cough, etc.

    What to do
    Frequent hand washing, use a mask if you have symptoms, self isolation, heightened sanitation efforts like disinfecting door handles, keyboards, and other high touch/ high traffic surfaces, call your doctor to ask if you should get tested vs going to an emergency room or clinic and risking infecting others including medical personnel.
    Ways to help others who are in vulnerable populations to get food and needed supplies without undue exposure to crowds. Maybe some free delivery from local stores and pharmacies? Let’s band together and get smart and creative and help each other out!
    Cell phone carriers: send out text alerts with links to CDC and helpful tips, links to hotlines for more information.

    and NOT do if you develop symptoms or if someone in your family or social circle or work develops symptoms. What everyone can and should do to prevent spreading and or contracting this virus.
    We need test kits, drive through or mail in testing, free or low cost supplies provided to low income communities and via employers to their employees.
    Access to unemployment benefits for ALL workers and free medical coverage for testing and treatment for all people so that no one has a financial barrier to getting tested or treated. Emergency room screening done outside of hospital buildings to reduce possible spread of the virus to vulnerable people inside the hospitals already dealing with other serious medical conditions.
    FEMA, National Guard, Corp of Civil Engineers could all be put to tasks to prepare for and mitigate the swamping of hospitals once this explodes.

    from October 1, 2019, through February 29, 2020, there have been:
    34,000,000 – 49,000,000
    flu illnesses

    16,000,000 – 23,000,000
    flu medical visits

    350,000 – 620,000
    flu hospitalizations

    20,000 – 52,000
    flu deaths

    Today in California there are 177 COVID19 cases with 4 deaths.

    Why would everybody be panicked? Got Democrat run media? Got an election cycle underway? Got used?

  • Reply Jazz man March 12, 2020 at 5:25 pm

    Trump wasted three months denying reality and during those three months an unknown number of people were needlessly exposed. Test kits weren't ordered, masks are in short supply, hand sanitizer impossible to find but even worse, no nationwide plans are in place. Every town, city and state is approaching the crisis differently, and some, not at all. By now, there should have been an overall game plan that addresses the 29 million Americans w/o health insurance and millions of undocumented people who fear deportation if they seek medical care.

    For those who remain incredulous that Trump filed bankruptcy six times, corona has laid bare his deplorable management skills. Trump supporters selected an abject failure as president and now the entire nation will pay the price. Many will pay with their lives.

  • Reply pjp88029 klee March 12, 2020 at 5:27 pm

    Trump exempted the UK because he owns 3 properties there; in Scotland and Ireland. Can't interrupt the influx of revenues to the Trump Org; right? per Wiki pages:
    A. Trump International Golf Links, Scotland is a golf course in Balmedie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, owned by Donald Trump. It opened in 2012.
    B. Turnberry a golf resort on the Firth of Clyde in Ayrshire, southwest Scotland. It comprises three links golf courses, a golf academy, a five-star James Miller-designed hotel from 1906, along with lodge and cottage accommodations.owned by the Trump Organization since 2014, who now brand the course "Trump Turnberry".
    C. Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland, formerly Doonbeg Golf Club, is a traditional links-type course situated to the north of Doonbeg in County Clare, Ireland.

Yet they are impotent to confront this virus. We know where they are. Held up in mansions counting their ill gotten gains from fleecing their blind flocks.
