  1. Will this include people like pilots and people who work on ships? If so, that’ll be a massive hit to trade between these countries, right?

  2. I’m so glad coronavirus decided to wait until Sunday 5PM est to begin infecting people.

  3. I wonder if this includes Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Doesn’t specify in the article.

  4. Does this include Taiwan?

  5. I wouldn’t be against Europe doing this as well.

  6. One of the very few things this administration has done that I agree with.

  7. Lmao this is 100% per cent because you cant force people into quarantine and then also force them to pay for the medical bills and quarantine. Probably be a 100k bill by the time they tell you it’s only the normal flu.

  8. This panic is ridiculous. The new Ebola scare on tv news. More people will die of influenza.

  9. My roommate works at a hotel packed with traffic from Disneyland travelers and got a gnarly cough and runny nose, she figured she had strep and went to urgent care, nope! They suspect something viral and swabbed her, sent the sample off.

  10. what about US citizens who have been to China – what are they subject to?

  11. …. Why not immediately? It’s SARS going to honour the two days and wait?

  12. “Trade is effected by viruses. This is true.

    People will be sick and die. This is also true.

    If you are worried about the first thing, the second thing may happen to you, and change your priorities, too!”

  13. I’m pretty sure the virus already has all the air and water upgrades at this point

  14. Great, can australia do the same

  15. This should have been our response over a week ago.

  16. Good. This is a good thing… mitigate spread, first rule of any outbreak.

  17. I wonder what’s changed. There was a lot of reluctance to enact this kind of thing.

  18. It is in our best interests.

  19. What people continuing onto Canada?

  20. Time to invest in China futures and sell I guess.

  21. So, infected people have roughly 48 hours to get here. After that, what? We send them to Mexico with everyone else we don’t want?

  22. Hey, look at that. A US travel ban that actually makes sense.

  23. This is bad news. People are just going to lie, then they’re going to bring in the virus and not tell anyone about it.

    That’s worse, because in their effort to hide that they’d been to china, they will also hide the virus, and will spread it.

  24. What about people who have transit there?

  25. The image for this article hurts me. I feel so bad for them.

  26. Of course, American Citizenship should protect nationals from the coronavirus. Only foreign nationals get infected.
