He's supposed to be the head guy! He's supposed to have access to all of the information and Intel. The president imposed the travel ban on Dec 31 and recognized the threat, why didn't Fauci???

Like I've said, I'm not impressed with the guy at all! I don't like the idea of him being in charge of recommending when we should impose or lift any kind of quarantine or social distancing.



Locking out foreigners hasn't seemed particularly challenging for this President. Not sure how much credit I want to give him for things that seem to come easy. YMMV.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

It seems to me that everybody dropped the ball on this one. I honestly think things would have played out the same way no matter who was in charge or in office.

You may very well be right. Depends on how aggressive Hillary would have been over this. And if she would have still had Obama's pandemic team working for her...I want to leave it at that to avoid giving an actual political opinion. But I would be curious to see how it would be different in theory if it was possible.

We probably got the best response that we could have gotten. Had a certain someone else have been president the travel ban would have never happened. As it was our president was called xenophobic, racist and other names as smug elitists started apologizing to the rest of the world for our travel ban as while we attempted to limit the spread of the Chinese virus here. At the state and local levels our gov officials and hospital purchasing agents were grossly negligent, especially in NY.

Yes, the travel ban to China on JANUARY 31st was one thing that I think was useful.

Hardly, but it's a political post so I won't detail the list of proposals and actions since 2016. Practically at the drop of a hat. Not really a challenge for him.

According to this study, Asian males are more susceptible the virus than any other group.

“East Asians, Japanese, and Han Chinese are the most likely people to become severely sick by the coronavirus with a chance of more than 90% when exposed. Europeans only rank in the 50%, Africans in the 60% range, and considered low to medium. It also makes a difference if one is a smoker or non-smoker.” - Article

The opposite may be true.

The combined populations of the non-communist Asian nations is 286 million. Combined deaths in those nations is currently 298.

US population is 327 million, with 8,454 Covid deaths. European mortality rates are currently much worse.
