I think the US closed it's borders to China before Australia. President Trump closed down border January 30 and the liberals went berserk. Dems went off again when he closed down flights to/from Italy (re the outbreak info), Spain, etc. It's an emergency and Dems are having a difficult time hiding their true colors/lies.
Cuomo and de Blasio are only proficient at corruption and did nothing medically constructive in the state of NY to prepare them against pandemics or anything else. Thousands have been fleeing from the state of New York for past years because of the taxes, political horror/corruption alone. Now they can't get out of Dodge fast enough.
