      @Mathy Don look i know what you mean but this is something people don’t get. This virus is a death sentence for those with compromised immune systems. So we are coming out of a very long quarantine. In most part people are confident when they join the party. So it better to keep it local for a minute. If we slip and let one +ve in this crowd, imagine what are gonna go through. I am tired of staying at home. I will lose my mind if we get 2nd wave and lets have sympathy for those who are going to be in trouble. But if we manage to keep it safe.. I’m up for it.

    • SeaJay Oceans but how will Donald have his cheap crap manufactured?!?!? You’re cutting into Trump organization profits!!!! What about all the immigrants Donald brings in from Eastern Europe to work at his bed bug infested empty hotels?!!!?

      @Crystal Giddens don’t worry. I am French. I am here in usa for business. I will be doing so in a very near future but till then i am gonna keep it.

    • Liverpool fc Fun So yes the people who die tend to be older and already sick, but younger fairly healthy still get sick and become hospitalized for up to a month, while they survive the economic impact spreads to their whole family and their employers as well as family and company must try to fill the fairly extended gap left while that one person is hospitalized.

      Deaths are a primary concern but also people who be some sick and do eventually recover are a huge problem because they clog up the hospitals, cause indirect preventable because they clog up the system and people with other illnesses and injuries can’t get prompt care, and it costs a lot to the economy having millions of people out sick because we lose their economic contributions and their whole family goes on pause as they try to deal with the hospitalizations in the family and their employers and coworkers try to fill the gap- so for every one million sick the economic disruption can affect at least 5 million family and company/coworkers…

      @Crystal Giddens As long as i am living in the community ,even if I am not from their is my community and i have a right to my opinion. This is just my opinion. I am not trying to change any law but history teaches us that when we are open to discussion, we always come up with a better solution that serves the best interests of all party involves. And we are discussing how to tackle this unprecedented challenge.

  3. It will be funny when other countries start banning people from the US

    He issued a travel ban for them and we are still above them…. Irony is dead.

  6. In other words a ton of other countries are still free to travel here.

      @Ver Coda Thank You so much for your response,your so right it hurts,l wish FOX could be banned from our Country for false and misleading content.

    • Rebecca Galvan | May 25, 2020 at 8:56 PM | Reply

      @Ver Coda lol not every state is the same in my state we actually follow our governors orders which has kept our numbers really low I can’t say the same for other states but I do think people should get some fresh air and some sunshine it does them good!!! It really doesn’t matter when you are still allowed into the country just because its essential travel people can be asymptomatic and be spreading the virus around without knowing!!

    • @Rebecca Galvan He is not comparing sizes or anything like that, he is talking about the attitude of the people. And he is correct.
      It’s pointless to do things state by state, or will your state travel ban people from states that didn’t have the same level of lockdown?.
      And it matters it’s not the same controlling tens of thousands travelers each day than a few hundreds.

      @Juan Fran well we can’t all hide in a bubble can we if Im gonna die I’m gonna die enjoying my last few days on earth not locked away!!!if your sick stay home if your scared stay home if you wanna be around people and risk getting the virus that’s on you!! People make their own choices

    • @UCnsEV7wOzVai9W0ncte3wEw
      Look at India, 3 deaths / 1M pop with 1.378 BILLIONS population. Let alone China, 3 deaths / 1M pop with 1.439 BILLIONS population. Us with 302 deaths / 1M pop with 330 MILLIONS population. But then again, of course you will refute by saying they are lying about the fatality figures. 😱😱

    To be honest, the rest of the world needs to issue a travel ban on us.

      @Mike Morgan Yep. As the list you provided states, the values listed are per 100,000 capita — directly opposing your claim that (quoting you directly) “Per capita number of cases, we’re near the BOTTOM of the list”, seeing that in fact, the US is near the TOP of the list, as you put it: “per capita”. Specifically, 9th out of 153. 😂😂

    • Our borders are shut to everyone. And when they do open it will be only to countries that we can rely on to test, track and trace, and control things. The US will certainly not be on that list. When you’re confronted little reality with that you will huff and puff and throw your weight around, but this time it will be to no avail. We’re done with you.

    • LairdDougal I mean, so be it? You’re not going to find a defender of the US in me. Your matter-of-fact attitude to international relations is amusing, though. Keep in mind Japan was trading with us during WWII. Those issues are a bit complicated.

    Like the phony China ban it’s just Brazilian nationals, still people coming in from Brazil. Just a little red meat for the “low IQ” base, they never catch on.

    I’m Brazilian and I’m happy that it prevents the Americans from infecting us since they are the global epicenter

      Fahim Ahmad , Here is the math: Ten Countries with the Highest Population in the World. are China, India, United States, Indonesia, Pakistan, Brazil, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Russia and Mexico. Expected Pop.
      Internet World Stats › stats8
      Start with population then move to per capita ( I hope you know what this means) totals: FIND THE CHART with the yellow lines. There you have it moron.

      @Mike Morgan the USA is in the top 10 for infected, dead and infection growth rates. Your own data shows it. Shame you fail understanding what per capita means. When I say shame I mean you should be fn ashamed

    • orecoast 1961 | May 25, 2020 at 10:43 PM | Reply

      Is that why Brazil has massive cases and your president says it’s a hoax?

    • @Mike Morgan The US doesn’t have a better healthcare than the Netherlands or Sweden or the UK or France. The data coming from the US is about as reliable as China’s or Iran’s.

    The travel ban is a good idea. Brasilians need to be protected from catching Covid-19 from americans. Bolsonaro however is welcome to catch all sorts of diseases in the WH from the unmasked rats there.

  16. It’s a great time to dress as Zorro

  17. VOTE Blue and trump goes back to crimes on his own time!!

  18. We have the greatest pandemics, the biggest numbers in terms of deaths, we will make the Spanish Flu look like the chicken pox
