This is so stupid. It’s going to do nothing at all. Maybe they should give other governors the “full discretion” to keep residents from NY and NJ out, if they need it – they can probably do it without permission. They need to help foreigners – both legal and illegal – return home, if they haven’t, to help alleviate the burden on the US healthcare system. They should have done a quarantine, like Trump suggested early on Saturday. The Trump administration is knocking itself out with deadly stupidity. The Trump Admin’s refusal to accept the WHO coronavirus tests, early on, was a deadly mistake. And, the Trump Admin just gave 25% of the US government reserve ventilators to NYC, leaving the rest of the country to rot. Some rural counties don’t have one ventilator in their hospital. The county hospitals had better hide the ones they have, lest the government tries to steal them for the urban areas.
