    No one has learnt, it’s just been declared a pandemic.... a lot of hype and scaremongering... Europe is learning from Italy’s contagion and experiences... the USA is ignoring the world atm apart from its economic stimulus oh well

    Can I just say huge credit to all those in here who have talked so openly and bravely  about issues that often don’t get discussed in these types of forums . And also to thank all the members who

    I do not post in this thread for two reasons. 1, I don’t know enough about the subject so my comments would be worthless 2 The ban on the political dimension means that it cannot be discusse

    Okay, there appears to be a couple of ideas circulating on the forum which people may be getting carried away with? I understand why people are running with them, because it creates the idea that

    In his address to the nation on Wednesday, President Trump announced that in an effort to stop new coronavirus cases from entering the United States all travel from Europe to the United States would be suspended for 30 days, beginning Friday at midnight. “There will be exemptions for Americans who have undergone appropriate screenings and these prohibitions will not only apply to the tremendous amount of trade and cargo, but to various other things as we get approval,” Trump said. “Anything coming from Europe to the United States is what we are discussing.” The president added that the restrictions would not affect travel from the United Kingdom.

    Fab. Even though the UK is currently exempt, this is going to further affect my business, as US customers will just assume we're included.

    Oh well I was right, Trump has gone to blame others mode. That ban covers countries which still have very low numbers of cases whilst he allows others with larger numbers a free pass.

    Anyway this isn’t a random Trump bashing act, this is just looking on in disbelief that we see a president not take this seriously and then when things start getting really bad he desperately tries to change the narrative whilst showing little regard for the people he represents... it’s all about the economy, all about Wall Street and stopping the shares crashing...

    Ireland excluded as well. We have pre clearance to US . So can people from banned countries in EU travel to here and UK then on to America? Will only make it worse for us if so. 

    That's why we need a travel ban in place too

    It’s the only way Trump’s ban would actually work (sort of).

    Frankly it would have felt more genuine if the entire region was off limits rather than selecting countries due to political regions. Sparing Ireland and the U.K. starts to make more sense when politics gets factored in.

    The ban is only on travel, goods are fine from all over the EU, so you should be fine.

    I'm also puzzled as to why trump has not banned the uk and ireland too, we're an infected country.  

    I'm starting to wonder what kind of world we will live in this time next year, maybe it'll boost the British home holiday market, revitalise towns centres....... I really hope some good can come from all this ?

    Bubs school has been told to get a plan sorted in the event they have to close.  They also have been upping their cleaning to include handles being done every hour or so, plus other things.

    Beginning to feel a bit surreal.

    Stay safe, Jhonny; it's most likely one of the nasty bugs that've been doing the rounds, as I had all those horrible symptoms, only a few weeks' back.:oldsmile:

    But, aye, self-isolation would make a lot of sense, though...Good man!:oldgood:

    I agree with the flight ban in principle, but why on earth is the UK not included? It makes no sense.
