Latest Coronavirus Developments Push Trump Administration to Take Drastic Action

The news comes just hours after Delta Airlines announced major changes to their service to China on account of the outbreak.

In China, over 200 people have now died as a result of a recent outbreak of a novel strain of Coronavirus, with thousands more being diagnosed by the day.

The World Health Organization has already declared the outbreak a “global emergency”, and with cases popping up all over the world, there are fears that the two-week incubation period associated with the virus could be preventing an accurate portrayal of the problem.

Just a day after the WHO’s declaration, the White House has also begun to take action.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said that President Donald Trump signed an order for the U.S. to deny entry to foreign nationals who have traveled to China within the past two weeks, aside from the immediate family of U.S. citizens.

Azar, speaking to reporters at the White House, also said that any U.S. citizens who have been in China’s Hubei province — home of Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus — within the last 14 days “will be subject to up to 14 days of mandatory quarantine to ensure they’re provided proper medical care and health screening.”

Azar contends that the risk to the US population remains “low”, despite the increasingly widespread outbreak currently ravaging the Far East.

Earlier today, Delta Airlines announced that it would be suspending flights to China as Beijing works to bring the crisp under control.
