  2. Understand, Chinese really shouldn’t travel at this moment. My parents still lockdown, but safe and sound. Hope this goes well soon.

  3. Donald Trump the only modern President not to invite US Nobel Laureates in Medicine, Chemistry, Physics, Economics to the White House.

    Trump is the only President who directed the Centers for Disease Control not to use the term "evidence-based."

    Trump is the only President whose attacks on science have caused thousands of top scientists to leave government service.

  4. Huh. Trump actually has a real reason to block foreigners from entering the country…let's see how long it takes him to exploit it.

  5. Anyone took their calculator? More people die from coconuts falling. Meanwhile, other subjects don’t make the headlines.

  6. Smoking kills 8 million people per year, 1.2 million of which is due to passive smoking. Why is this not a health emergency?

  7. 36,000 Americans are killed by ordinary flu every year, mainly due to the cost of medical care being out of reach for so many Americans. Why has the president not declared that a medical emergency?


  9. Glad Trump cut funding to Health and Human Services and the CDC. I saved 0% on my taxes and the US is not prepared to deal with an outbreak.

  10. What is coronavirus and how worried should we be? ►

  11. what about shipping ports? Are there people on the incoming ships who have been exposed when loading/shipping products from China?
