The first death due to corona virus happened in Wuhan on 1/10. Why do liberals keep saying Trump knew about it for months?

It's brand new, no one knew what it was but banning travel to a country twenty-one days after the first death ever in history to a new disease I think we can all agree is a pretty fast turn around for an administration

And the CDC issued a level 1 travel advisory on 1/11 and a level III not until 1/27 and the WHO didn't issue warning until 1/30

Trump banned travel to China on 1/31 taking effect 2/2

It's a new disease people, we didn't know what it was but I think we can all agree Trump had a pretty freaking fast reaction to it

    21 days is not a "fast turn around"... Unless maybe you're a sloth.

      21 days to lock down an entire country over a new virus is very fast especially when you compare his reaction to the rest of the World. The UK waited until March 15. The EU waited until March 17. And so on and so forth. Only Italy closed thir borders faster than we did

    On 23 January 2020, the central government of China imposed a lockdown in Wuhan and other cities in Hubei in an effort to quarantine the centre of an outbreak of SARS-CoV-2.  That same month China was building a new hospital (completed it in ten days) in Wuhan.

    When will Trump order a national lockdown?

    Literally within days of the 1st case in the US being identified Trump imposed the ban on travel from China.

    Simply banning travel is not a lasting solution, especially since you cannot ban American citizens from entering the country. It was inevitable that the virus would arrive in the US even with the ban. Trump should have been spending time creating quarantine facilities and increasing production on necessary equipment like masks and ventilators. Instead he spent six weeks saying that the virus was a hoax and it would magically disappear. He also did not enforce quarantine for people returning to the US. “Voluntary quarantine” measures are doomed to fail.

    You conservatives REALLY need to get your stories straight before you start trying to debate.

    All they have are Democrat talking point not based on reality.  If you have the chance to actually ask one of them for specifics all you get is the talking point repeated with a variation.
