Biden Considering Stronger Travel Restrictions On Red States Than On Mexico
[Federalist] President Joe Biden is reportedly considering domestic travel restrictions to slow the spread of coronavirus variants while effectively opening the nation’s borders to unvetted foreign trespassers.
"This is a war and we’re at battle with the virus. War is messy and unpredictable, and all options are on the table," an anonymous White House official told the Miami Herald, singling out Florida, where a third of all strains of the U.K. variant found in the U.S. has been identified.
The variant, known as B.1.1.7 is supposedly more transmissible, doubling in the United States every 10 days according to a new study published Sunday. The study has not yet been peer-reviewed. According to Stanford University professor of medicine Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, the COVID-19 vaccines and previous COVID-19 infection currently appear to give good protection against the U.K. and other newer variants.
