Israel found that 70% of the coronavirus transmission in the country could be linked to the US

While only 27% of US travelers to Israel tested positive for the coronavirus, a new study found that travel from the United States alone could account for 70% of coronavirus cases in the country, The New York Times reported.

A genome study from Tel Aviv University sequenced the genomes of virus samples from more than 200 randomly selected patients across six hospitals and compared them to sequences worldwide. The study has not yet been peer-reviewed.

According to the Jerusalem Post, while flights from some European and other countries began to be halted starting on February 26, those from the US were not suspended until March 9.

"Those who returned from the US created transmission chains," Adi Stern, from the School of Molecular Cell Biology and Biotechnology at TAU's George S. Wise Faculty of Life Sciences, told The Jerusalem Post.

1. Before this is over the US will face travel bans

The rest of the world has leaders who are acting to stop this in their countries, the US has no leadership and we're about to initiate a second and bigger wave because our President lacks the courage to do what is right.

There will come a time when flights from the US are banned, and US citizens are banned from going to other countries, the risk will be too high. The rest of the world will have beaten this while we drag it on for the rest of the year or longer.

2. And Trump will say it is all the fault of China, and the WHO, and the CDC, and Obama, and Biden.
