THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE:

A Global Level 4 Health Advisory. All Americans abroad told to come home. All Americans at home told not to plan international travel. “If you choose to travel internationally, your travel plans may be severely disrupted, and you may be forced to remain outside of the United States for an indefinite timeframe.”

Possibly related: Trump eyes grounding jets, halting stock trading, and ordering shelter in place. “European nations are also considering grounding passenger jets. . . . There are some internal government models that show that the number of people infected in the coming two months could reach over 5 million.”

And: “The moves were described as very seriously being discussed and not imminent. However, we were also told that decisions are moving fast at the top levels of the administration.”

Remember (like last week) when the standard criticism was that Trump wasn’t doing enough?
