America has allegedly banned “most travelers” from China.
The United States on Friday declared a public health emergency and announced significant entry restrictions because of a new virus that hit China and has spread to other nations.
Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, who is coordinating the federal response, announced that President Donald Trump has signed an order that will temporarily bar entry to the U.S. of foreign nationals, other than immediate family of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, who have traveled in China within the last 14 days. The new restrictions take effect at 5 p.m. EST on Sunday.
I guess it made sense to Donald Trump to wait this long to announce the ban, and then give two more days for travelers from Wuhan to pour into America.
As recently as Friday, the US was still allowing flights directly from Wuhan.
A Chinese airline is offering travelers a rare deal: a flight from Hong Kong to New York for $201.
But there’s a catch: You have to stop off in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the center of the global coronavirus outbreak.
Business Insider on Friday found a May 20 flight from the budget airline China Southern for just $201 on the travel-comparison site Kayak. The offer was first reported by Bloomberg, which found an even cheaper flight, for $193.
The site showed the flight, from Hong Kong International Airport to New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, departing at 11:25 a.m. local time and arriving 23 hours and five minutes later, at 10:30 p.m. ET the same day. (Hong Kong and New York have a 13-hour time difference.)
The journey comprises a roughly two-hour flight from Hong Kong to Wuhan, a six-hour layover in Wuhan, and a 14-hour flight from Wuhan to New York.
Direct flights from Hong Kong to New York on the same day were significantly more expensive, with nonstop Cathay Pacific flights listed on Kayak for about $1,200.
Obviously, a 6 hour layover would allow for travelers at the Wuhan airport to board the flight.
It would also allow people who had left from Hong Kong to be exposed to the disease during their layover.
I don’t even know how the Wuhan airport is operating, given that the entire city is quarantined – but whatever.
I would not be the least bit surprised if this line from Hong Kong to New York – through Wuhan – remains open after Sunday, given how totally incompetent the US government has been in dealing with this threat.
Furthermore, the “US Citizens” exemption in Trump’s ban is egregiously retarded.
What difference does it make which citizenship a person holds if they are infected with a deadly disease?
Viruses do not check if someone has an American passport before infecting them. And the idiot United States government has given millions of Chinese people US passports, because… because we just give everyone in the world passports, because Jews claim that makes our country “stronger.”
Meanwhile, most third world countries are refusing to engage in this insane behavior, and are flat-out banning anyone coming from China.
Vietnam has suspended all China flights as part of “strengthening measures” against the coronavirus outbreak, its civil aviation authority said in a statement on Saturday.
The step applies to all airlines “which have routes between Vietnam and China” and also includes Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, it added in the directive which was posted on its website and took effect at 1 pm Saturday (0600 GMT).
An AFP correspondent on a flight from Taiwan to Vietnam was among 98 passengers told to disembark just as the announcement went public.
“The decision is ridiculous and unacceptable,” Vietnamese tourist Doan Thi Ngoc Diep told AFP after leaving the plane.
How long can the US continue to be the bully of the entire world when they refuse to even protect themselves from plagues?
America is not invincible.
And even if this Coronavirus does not turn out to be a global disaster, the fact that the US has dropped the ball in such a moronic manner, refusing to protect Americans from the potential of a plague, demonstrates that the ZOG empire is far from prepared to manage the threats that face it.
