With the coronavirus continuing to spread around the world, President Donald Trump took swift action with regard to travel restrictions.
In February, once the spread in China was beginning to snowball, the president quickly pulled the plug on the country, stopping all travel to and from China.
Then, on Wednesday, during an Oval Office address to the nation, Trump made an unprecedented move — he announced that all travel to Europe would be stopped. The next day he added both the United Kingdom and Ireland to the list of banned countries.
In the next few weeks, should the virus be unable to be contained within the United States, the president and his administration will consider restricting all domestic travel.
Currently there are over 3,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States.
Did President Donald Trump make the right move in banning travel to these countries?
