On 31 January, POTUS issued the following travel restrictions:
Proclamation on Suspension of Entry as Immigrants and Nonimmigrants of Persons who Pose a Risk of Transmitting 2019 Novel Coronavirus
Biden responded that President Trump’s travel restrictions were xenophobic and fearmongering:
China Joe Accuses President Trump of “Fearmongering” Coronavirus Due to Suspension of Entry…
In response to an escalating spread of the Coronavirus President Trump initiated a suspension of entry visa’s for persons traveling from China…
Biden stated: “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering…”
…And just like that Democrats become the party of pro-virus.
You know the professional open-border democrats have lost their minds when they start defending the rights of a potentially deadly virus to enter the U.S.A. Nuts. Great job Joe…
He didn’t stop flights but issued a level 4 advisory for parts of Italy. From yesterday’s press conference (VP Pence):
“First, the President authorized action today to add additional travel restrictions on Iran. We will be using section 212(f), on banning travel from Iran. Iran is already under a travel ban, but we are expanding existing travel restrictions to include any foreign national who has visited Iran within the last 14 days. In addition to moving Iran, we are going to increase to the highest level of advisory, which is level four advising Americans do not travel to specific regions in Italy and South Korea. Let me say again, the President today has authorized the State Department to increase the travel advisory for Americans to level four. We are urging Americans to not travel to the areas in Italy and the areas in South Korea that are most affected by the coronavirus. The President has also directed the State Department to work with our allies in Italy and in South Korea to coordinate a screening, a medical screening, in their countries of any individuals that are coming in to the United States of America and we look forward to working with them in a collaborative and a cooperative way.”

Gatherings banned, travel restricted as coronavirus cases grow worldwide. “Leaders in Europe, the Middle East and the Americas rolled out bans on big gatherings, and stricter travel restrictions as cases of the new coronavirus spread around the world.”
