Huh. Wonder what part of the "science" changed...

Wuhan Flu: Canada To Bar Entry To Non-Citizens

Quote:
Per the announcement this hour from the late Prime Minister: Canada to bar entry to all travellers who are not citizens or permanent residents. Exceptions will be in place for U.S. citizens, diplomats, crew and immediate family members of citizens…

And crossings via Roxham Road, one presumes.

If the Trump admin issues the same in coming hours, I think it’s safe to assume Trudeau’s hand was forced by a courtesy call from Washington.

Related: Mexico is getting that wall.
First comment nails it:

Quote:
When is a travel ban, not a travel ban?

How sciency was the first decision, compared to the sciencyness of the about face decision?

Apparently he’s listened to all the best experts before, which said travel bans don’t work. So, now bans DO work?

Incompetent azzhoe!

Wuhan Flu: Heads Up

Whatever you need that can't be found in a grocery store or pharmacy, get it now. Based on the last few days, I don't expect much to be open beyond grocery stores & pharmacies in much of Canada by tomorrow afternoon. #CoronavirusOutbreak #COVIDCanada #coronavirus #coronapocolypse

Update: This just came across the feeds, and it’s gut wrenching if accurate. (It may also explain why the Canadian government did an about face on foreign entry.)

Ever wonder why viral diseases always seem to start in China?

Here's your answer and it is very interesting.

And the usual suspects in here wonder why we see Trump for the lying, mealy-mouthed, double-talking, misinformed and unprepared asshat that he is....

Trump's fans were shrugging off COVID-19. Now it's a war, and he's their leader


(Source: TheWeek.com)
The MAGAverse has gotten the memo: Coronavirus is a bona-fide emergency that requires myriad actions from citizens and government in order to avert catastrophe.

(...)

The whiplash-inducing change in tone from American conservatives comes after prominent voices on the American right derided coronavirus as an exaggerated crisis at best — and at worst, a plot hatched by the media-Democrat industrial complex to take down Trump.

That what-me-worry attitude had potentially lethal real-world effects — with Trump's own fans facing the biggest risk. Republican voters overwhelmingly believe what the president says, according to one new survey, in contrast to the overall public.

After weeks of White House messaging downplaying the severity of the threat, it's no surprise several surveys showed Republicans being far likelier to shrug off health warnings.

One indicated Republicans were twice as likely to think that coronavirus news was exaggerated, and likelier to proceed with planned gatherings. Another showed similar findings.

(...)

What's changed?

For starters, Trump's message.

After COVID-19 case numbers undeniably grew in the U.S., and global markets unquestionably collapsed, and allies like Steve Bannon and Fox News host Tucker Carlson urgently pleaded with him, Trump ramped up his response.

Just a few days ago, he was spinning sunny messages of continued economic prosperity that had been central to his re-election strategy.

Trump was saying things about the virus like, "We have it totally under control … it's going to be fine" (Jan. 22), and "We've pretty much shut it down" (Feb. 2). He added that cases would drop to zero "within a couple of days" (Feb. 26) or disappear "like a miracle" (Feb. 27)...

(...)

And now President Trump is treating the virus for what it is: a historic health, economic and political crisis that is the biggest test of his presidency.

He insists he always took it seriously. For example, he points to his Jan. 31 restriction on travel from China. "I've always known this is a real … pandemic. I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic," Trump said.

(...)

Perhaps the best encapsulation of the before-and-after messaging came from Trump friend and prime-time Fox host Sean Hannity.

On March 9, Hannity bemoaned "mass hysteria," the "newest hoax" from Democrats, and "manufactured, irresponsible, over-the-top rhetoric."

He lumped it in with a variety of other ailments to fret about: "You should be concerned about the flu. You should be concerned about a cold," he said, but added that the media coverage of COVID-19 was "beyond despicable."

Fast-forward a week. In his show this Tuesday, Hannity had a picture of Second World War leader Franklin D. Roosevelt on the screen — and he cast this virus as a war, with Donald J. Trump as America's wartime leader.

He called the coming 15-day period critical in containing the spread. Rest assured, Hannity said, America and its leader are up to the challenge.
