Pres. Trump takes decisive actions re: pandemic

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

World Health Organization has announced a global pandemic

Addressing Americans from the Oval Office on Wednesday evening, President Trump announced decisive action in response to the Coronavirus that medical authorities have said has reached “Pandemic” proportions. (The virus is also known as COVID-19 and Wuhan virus in China where it originated).

Among his actions is the imposition of a 30-day ban on those from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. U.S. citizens will be allowed to return home after undergoing enhanced screening. (The link in this paragraph provides an information page on each country listed.)

The U.S. State Department has issued this Global Level Three travel advisory.

At President Trump’s request, health insurance companies have agreed to extend insurance coverage to cover Coronavirus treatments as well as waive related co-payments.

The president also announced his plans to implement emergency action to provide financial relief for workers who are sick or need to be quarantined, saying he will ask Congress to take legislative action to extend that support, and will instruct the Treasury Department to “defer tax payments without interest or penalties for certain individuals and businesses negatively impacted.”

Colleges and universities across the country have suspended classes, implementing online instruction. CNN provides the list. Study abroad programs have been suspended. National sporting events have been cancelled, as have St. Patrick Day parades, trade shows, concerts, and theater events. Increasing numbers of churches are suspending services until this health threat posed by large gatherings has abated.
