    I agree! We should be doing whatever those nations that have seen decreases in new cases have been doing.

    Instead, our government seem to be having meetings about having meetings

    How can the US warn the EU when no-one in the US knows about these things until they come out of Trump's mouth?

    I assume anyone in desperate need of travel from mainland Europe to the US will simply travel via London?

    One of the big confusions that caused chaos in CDG was that Trump never specified that Americans are not part of that ban, so you have a bunch of vacationers paying out their asses for last minute flights.

    The other one is Trump said trade and cargo would be part of it. They aren't. Kind of a big f*cking deal to screw that up, but that's the leader of the free world for you.

    And isn't it great that Britain thought it best to dump the EU and get into bed with this crazy asshole

    Trump blamed Europe for "seeding" the US with the "foreign virus".

    Exactly. Maybe Trump and China are working together to bring Britain down

    Worse than that (or better for some hotels) but they've got to be outside the Schengen Area (Europe) for 14 days before they can get into the US.

    Perhaps a trip via Dubai or Canada/Carribean will be more attractive for those that can afford it.

    It’s all health and child services except for doctors where people can be tested for free.

    Desperately trying to deflect from his own incompetence over the last 2 weeks. Nothing new there. This is what happens when you ignore a potential pandemic in favour of the economy and re-election

    Apologies if I’m way off the mark here. I’m a physicist after all, not a biologist .

    But wouldn’t monoclonal antibodies be a way to try and fight it? Lymphocytes (white blood cells that make antibodies ) are taken from rats and fused with tumour cells to make them undergo rapid cell division (mitosis) . You can make the required antibodies with the mass of lymphocytes we have made . Only instead of using rats , why not extract the lymphocytes from people who have just recovered from the disease? Their immune systems have obviously successfully rid the body of the disease after all .
