The U.S. will also impose mandatory quarantines for any U.S. citizens who have been to Wuhan China.
The United States is dramatically strengthening their response to the Coronavirus epidemic:
“As part of the Administration’s work to protect Americans and respond to the 2019 Novel #Coronavirus outbreak, today I signed a public health emergency declaration.”
— Secretary Alex Azar (@SecAzar) January 31, 2020
U.S. Health & Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced that U.S. President Donald Trump signed an order that will ban foreign nationals who have been to China within the last two weeks from entering the United States.
Some exceptions will be made, with immediate family of U.S. citizens allowed to enter.
However, U.S. citizens who have travelled to Wuhan China within the last 14 days “will be subject to up to 14 days of mandatory quarantine to ensure they’re provided proper medical care and health screening.”
The U.S. actin makes perfect sense. Noting that the risk to the U.S. is currently ‘low,’ their government is taking prudent action to make sure the risk stays low.
After all, you and I know it’s far better to act early when dealing with an epidemic, since acting later can bring disaster.
Meanwhile, while the U.S. takes stronger action, the Trudeau Liberal Government is refusing to take those steps, exposing Canadians to further danger even as much of the rest of the world takes stronger and stronger action to defend their Citizens.
