Trump Takes Strong but Necessary Action Amid Coronavirus Panic

Trump Takes ''Strong but Necessary'' Action Amid Coronavirus Panic.

An announcement late last night saw the United States President Donald Trump announced new travel restrictions to affect travellers from Europe, trying to enter the USA.

To protect American citizens from the Coronavirus, now categorised as a Pandemic, Trump has banned all European residents from the 26 countries in the Schengen border-free travel area from coming into America. To see whether you're affected, refer to the listing below -

These new restrictions will be enforced as of midnight tomorrow (Friday 13th March 2020) but will not affect US or UK citizens and does not apply to cargo travelling to and from America.

As the virus toll rises to 1,135 confirmed cases, with 38 deaths so far, Trump decided that as well as travel restrictions he would send troops into the areas of New Rochelle near New York City where the outbreak is thought to have originated. His plans for drastic action have pleased many Americans whilst other Governments still seem undecided about their best cause of action. Donald Trump has since said that the European Union had "failed to take the same precautions" as the US in fighting the virus.
