President Donald Trump is taking measures to safeguard the American people as the Chinese coronavirus continues to spread throughout the world.
The White House has issued a travel ban on foreign nationals who have been to China in the past 14 days, keeping these individuals off of airplanes in an attempt to stop a pandemic from occurring in the U.S.
Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar made the announcement on Friday that the administration will be “temporarily suspending the entry into the United States of foreign nationals who pose a risk of transmitting the 2019 novel coronavirus.” It is set to go into effect on Sunday at 5 p.m. EST.
Azar also confirmed that all U.S. citizens who have traveled to the Hubei Province within the last two weeks will be subject to a mandatory quarantine for up to 14 days when they return to the country. U.S. citizens coming back to the states from mainland China will be screened as they return and subject to up to 14 days of self-monitoring following arrival.
Dr. Anthony Fauci said to reporters that these emergency measures are being taken because of “the unknown of the aspects of this particular outbreak.”
This follows news that Russia shut down its border with China completely due to fears over the coronavirus pandemic spreading to that country:
State owned Russia Today reported that Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin issued an order to close Russia’s border with China in the Far East.
The Far East is Russia’s largest region in terms of landmass and it’s also the most remote area of the country.
This decision is following Vladimir Putin’s instructions on Wednesday when he requested that government officials do whatever they can to prevent the dissemination of the Chinese coronavirus.
Furthermore, Mishushtin directed Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova to update the public on a daily basis on the status of coronavirus in Russia. As of now, the Russian government has not confirmed any cases of the virus.
“An order has been signed today, it has become operational,” Mishustin informed ministers in Moscow.
“We will inform everyone today of the relevant measures to close the border in the Far East region and other measures the government has taken [to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Russia].”
Similarly, Moscow temporarily suspended the issuance of electronic visas to Chinese nationals, according to a Foreign Ministry announcement on Thursday afternoon.
President Trump is making sure that U.S. officials take the coronavirus seriously, and Americans are not afflicted with this terrible and deadly virus from Red China.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic
Another Republican governor with courage.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.
According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.
“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”
Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”
“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.
Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.
“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.
Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.
“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.
Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:
Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…
This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.
Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.
“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.
The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
