White House limits travel to U.S. from Brazil due to coronavirus

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House on Sunday said it was prohibiting most non-U.S. citizens from traveling to the United States if they had been in Brazil in the last two weeks, two days after the South American nation became the world No. 2 hot spot for coronavirus cases.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the new restrictions would help ensure foreign nationals do not bring additional infections to the United States, but would not apply to the flow of commerce between the two countries.

National security adviser Robert O’Brien earlier on Sunday told CBS’ “Face the Nation” he hoped the move could be reconsidered at some point.

“We hope that’ll be temporary, but because of the situation in Brazil, we’re going to take every step necessary to protect the American people,” O’Brien said.

4. It should be the other way: US has 3.0 X the cases per capita and 3X the deaths per capita

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

Total Cases per 1M population:
US: 5098,
Brazil: 1712

Total Deaths per 1M population:
US: 300,
Brazil: 107

USA USA USA!

5. thanks for this post. Did you know trump doesn't know what per capita means...he fumbled all

over it last week when a reporter asked him question concerning per capita positive tests and deaths.

6. I forgot about that! But yeah, I read all about that including an extended quotation, it was

pathetic. (Actually I think he knew up to a few years ago what per capita is, but well, his mind has obviously been slipping for awhile)

Reminds me of Bush's Internets. Lots of Internets. Lots of webs. Lots of per capitas. Lots and lots.

9. Isn't that a pity. Our government is punishing Brazil for enforcing the same policies Trump does.

Dump's brother-in-crime, Bolsonaro, must be very disappointed.
