430,000 People Have Traveled From China to U.S. Since Coronavirus Surfaced

Source: New York Times

Since Chinese officials disclosed the outbreak of a mysterious pneumonialike illness to international health officials on New Year’s Eve, at least 430,000 people have arrived in the United States on direct flights from China, including nearly 40,000 in the two months after President Trump imposed restrictions on such travel, according to an analysis of data collected in both countries.

The bulk of the passengers, who were of multiple nationalities, arrived in January, at airports in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Newark and Detroit. Thousands of them flew directly from Wuhan, the center of the coronavirus outbreak, as American public health officials were only beginning to assess the risks to the United States.

Flights continued this past week, the data show, with passengers traveling from Beijing to Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York, under rules that exempt Americans and some others from the clampdown that took effect on Feb. 2. In all, 279 flights from China have arrived in the United States since then, and screening procedures have been uneven, interviews show.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly suggested that his travel measures impeded the virus’s spread in the United States. “I do think we were very early, but I also think that we were very smart, because we stopped China,” he said at a briefing on Tuesday, adding, “That was probably the biggest decision we made so far.” Last month, he said, “We’re the ones that kept China out of here.”

10. Jmho ...

This virus is more widespread and traveling by the day ...

My own personal BFE (bum f*cked Egypt) in the middle of nowhere ... literally ...

On no major highway ... a poor rural aging population ... no one really goes anywhere because no one has had two dollars to rub together for 40 years ...

100 miles from any major population....

A 90 yr old resident of a nursing home tested positive yesterday ...

She has been a resident since September... the nursing home locked down on March 12 ... no one in except for employees ... everyone has there temperature taken upon entry as well as answering a 15 point questionnaire...

No one symptomatic...

Resident displayed UTI symptoms on Tuesday ... was transferred to local hospital (23 miles away) ... maybe had elevated temperature... was tested for covid19 .... came back positive yesterday ...

We have a county of 2000 people in a 295 square mile area ...

....

If it is HERE ... it is EVERYWHERE

Stay safe ... my friends

11. Only 430,000?

If we had anyone other than Trump as President, it could have been twice that many.

13. So yet another thing the media repeatedly gives him credit for is basically meaningless.
