    Ok. Europe banned everyone from entering the continent. Very good.

    Then how did Europe become the epicenter of the virus?

    I didn't claim that Europe banned everyone from entering the continent. I have to wonder why you're changing the topic and making things up, and what are these meaningless simplifications for?
    If you're seriously interested in how the virus has been spreading in the last few weeks, I'm sure there's plenty of reliable info out there and that excludes Trump's claims. The epicenter is still China.

    The US air travel ban you seem to be so proud of didn't work, otherwise there wouldn't be any cases in the US. Didn't work for the US, didn't work for Italy. You made a false claim, Trump (as so often) made a false claim. Full stop.

    We did ban travel, but many arrived here while China was lying about the seriousness of the epidemic

    Well, I’m sincerely curious ... how did Europe have so many cases (exponentially more than the U.S.) if air travel was banned? I guess they came by boat or car.

    There is a lot to be criticized about China here and their politics re this pandemic is despicable. My thoughts: the US has only two neighbouring countries, this is very different in Europe. Some countries have four, five neighbours and you can easily cross two, three countries in a few hours by car. So an infected person might travel through three, four countries in one day spreading the virus. Contrary to popular believe by many 'mericans, EU countries still have a lot of autonomy without Brussels interfering in their domestic affairs. In certain situations this can be a disadvantage, esp re communication.
    Based on what I've read, everybody who was diagnosed with the virus had it in them for a week or two without knowing it and very likely infected others before feeling ill and seeing a doctor. You can be infected and the symptoms start appearing only after two weeks. One infected person can contaminate up to several hundreds without even realising that they have the virus.
    Most countries in Europe are very densely populated. Italy is pretty much the size of Arizona with a population around 9 times bigger. The Netherlands are half (!) the size of South Carolina with 3,5 times more people. For a highly contagious virus this is paradise.
    Pretty much all European countries are controlling their borders, their airports, their ports and EU external borders. Depending on where one lives, travelling is restricted. Regarding Italy, you might want to google "patient one", a 38-year old fit guy who seems to have been the "source." Felt ill, went to his GP who, unfortunately, detected the problem only after a few days during which it spread and infected maybe around a hundred others who then infect hundreds. The claim that European countries let it spread or didn't do enough is definitely incorrect.

    As a totally misinformed Republican or whatever, you are totally misinformed, you are talkin about communism. Socialism is always Democratic Fair capitalism with a good safety net everywhere outside your bubble of Bologna. "We are all capitalists now!" --president of Finland when ObamaCare passed. Try asking a socialist instead of right-wing brainwashers.... CERTAINLY NOT A COMMUNIST OR NAZI THEY LIE AS ALWAYS. SO DOES THE GOP PROPAGANDA MACHINE

    The wall is a joke and won't work. pass the 2010 Democratic immigration bill with an ID card and end this GOP scam. Like every other modern country with this problem.

    Italy is full of tourists from all over the world wake up and smell the coffee so is France-Chinese tourists are taking over the world San Francisco Los Angeles New York what a shock. They don't have illegal immigrants in Italy they have a working immigration system with an ID card like the Democrats want but can't even say because it's such a communist conspiracy. Poor America.

    Now you're conflating coronavirus and illegal immigration. Italy is pretty pissed off about all the refugees that the GOP has caused. Wrecking the middle East Afghanistan, and sub-Saharan Africa with the 2008 depression. Meanwhile they don't allow any refugees here period. Real scum-of-the-earth LOL. The GOP Masters I'm talking about. Rupert Murdoch poor America

    We don't have open borders policy. Scared people use it to scare others.
