Trump: No quarantine for NY-NJ-CT

Trump: No quarantine for NY-NJ-CT

Not sure it could have worked, and not deemed necessary by CDC

There had been a suggestion by Trump that he might order some sort of quarantine for the greater New York City area because it has become a hotspot of Wuhan coronavirus infections and deaths.

Trump just announced that he has decided against it:

President Donald Trump said Saturday that he will not seek to impose a quarantine on New York, New Jersey and certain parts of Connecticut, after floating the idea earlier in the day as way to contain the coronavirus from spreading out of hotspots where the disease has taken a particularly heavy toll.

Trump said he decided a quarantine wasn’t necessary after consulting with the White House task force and the governors of the three states. He has asked the Centers for Disease control to issue a strong travel advisory, which will be administered by the governors in consultation with the federal government.

Trump tweeted:

On the recommendation of the White House CoronaVirus Task Force, and upon consultation with the Governor’s of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, I have asked the @CDCgov to issue a strong Travel Advisory, to be administered by the Governors, in consultation with the…. Federal Government. A quarantine will not be necessary. Full details will be released by CDC tonight. Thank you!

Thank you, prof, for continuing to call it the Wuhan Virus and not some watered down “COVID 19” or other PC term.

    CHINA, it comes from

      Yes, but so do hundreds of other viruses, so calling it the Chinese virus doesn’t narrow it down enough. China is a virus factory, constantly throwing new diseases at the rest of the world.

Any doubt he was just getting the governors to quit fear mongering?

    It sure revealed Cuomo as the Hyper-Hypocrite he is.

    Cuomo like many of the DEMS have been screeching non-stop “national shut down!”

With how Comrade Cuomo and the other states have been shutting down the states, I think Trump had no need to do anything further. What he did was highlight that Cuomo went nuts over a quarantine order from President Trump, even though this is exactly what he has done with the state he is dictator of.

Yeah, Cuomo is “great” presidential material. That is would be more like the Third Reich than a Republic is only an enhancement for the foolish leftists.

Trump saying no quarantine for NY is a sure fire way to get New Yorkers to demand a quarantine. Because opposite world.

What Trump did was exposure the hypocrites who were clamoring for him to do a “national lockdown”.

Tell me there is no difference in the reporting. And post this wherever you can to tick off the liberals.

Can we quarantine them to keep them from meddling with local issues in places they’ll never go?

Asking for the few remaining friends who haven’t yet fled.

New Yorkers are not healthy for children and other living things.

This PSA has been brought to you by the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.

Too late; the damage has been done. The mass exodus to Florida will soon result in a huge spike in confirmed cases and deaths down there.

I spoke with a friend in Coco Beach yesterday. She “bumped” into a NYer at the grocery store, who came down the day before yesterday. This person basically ignored the whole stay at home thing. SMH… Multiply this by a few thousand..

    I might note something of an observation, Chinese virus is being spread, in some cases by people with two homes… Might as well call it afluenza…

    It happened in a nearby county, Cherokee SC, where an idiot from NY came up to their getaway and went to a yoga class. She, and 5 others were later tested positive. My Coco Beach friend told me about this.

    Chinese afluenza.
