Two Days After Trump Travel Ban, WHO Names Europe Epicenter of the Wuhan Flu

Published

The head of the World Health Organization, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced on Friday, March 13, 2020, that Europe is now the “epicentre” of the Wuhan virus pandemic.

He implored countries to take aggressive measures, while also using community mobilization and social distancing to save lives.

“Do not just let this fire burn,” he advised.

His comments came in the midst of various European countries reporting notable increases in infections and deaths. So far, Italy has recorded its highest death toll in one day.

Reports indicated that there were 250 deaths recorded during the last 24 hours. Now, Italy’s death toll is 1,266, with 17,660 total infections.

Spain, the next country after Italy hardest hit by the Wuhan flu, reported a 50 percent increase in fatalities to 120 on Friday. Infections moved up to 4,231.

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced that a state of emergency will go into effect in Spain on Saturday, March 14, 2020 for two weeks.

More than 132,500 people have been diagnosed with the Wuhan flu in 123 countries across the globe, according to WHO reports.

The total number of deaths has gone up to 5,000. Dr Tedros described this as “a tragic milestone.”

“Europe has now become the epicentre of the pandemic, with more reported cases and deaths than the rest of the world combined, apart from China,” he said.

“More cases are now being reported every day than were reported in China at the height of its epidemic.”

This makes Trump’s previous travel ban from Europe, which he announced on March 11, look like sensible policy.

While political elites were screaming for open borders, Trump took bold action by banning travel from Europe.

This is in stark contrast to globalist Democrats who enjoy virtue signaling and gushing about open borders.

In times like these, such globalist policies could put thousands of Americans’ lives at risk.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis

Published

on

After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”

Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”

Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.

In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.

With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.

Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.

A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.

This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.

Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
