Save USA from Pandemic Close all USA Borders to Non-Essential travel

Call for a presidential Executive order closing all USA borders to non-essential travel.

If we had close the borders to non-essential travel, we wouldn't be having so many cases. We left the barn door wide open.

The crisis is airline travelers returning from overseas unknowingly infected to all parts of America. Map of cases exploding across America. https://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

Israel orders 14-day self-quarantine for travelers coming into the country https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/coronavirus-covid-19-israel-travel-quarantine-12520256

Johns Hopkins doctor warns coronavirus ‘could happen here’ like Wuhan “We need to tell people right now to stop all nonessential travel. I feel strongly about that,” he added. https://nypost.com/2020/03/10/johns-hopkins-doctor-warns-coronavirus-could-happen-here-like-wuhan/

Our nation is at a crossroads, we still have a small window of time to stop more airline travelers returning unknowingly infected to all parts of America, but that is quickly closing. If we act now we can at least slow down, perhaps even contain and halt the spread of Covid-19 in America.  Soon the window of time to act will be gone forever.

America is ill-prepared to deal with this rapidly exploding crisis, soon our medical institutions will be overwhelmed, all schools will be closed, small businesses and factories will shut down, we need to buy more time to adjust and respond more adequately, vaccines will not be ready until months.

The cost of a widespread pandemic of Covi-19 will be 10,000's times more in economic losses and US citizen lives, compared to the cost of closing the US borders until we can possibly get a handle on greatly diminishing the spread.

Sadly this reminds me of the movie Jaws, the businessmen want to leave the beach open, to not lose money, this is similar to leaving the borders wide open. We are allowing Jaws (Covid-19) to come to all parts of America to devour our citizens and the whole economy, mainly by airline travelers unaware they been infected, where jaws can't be stopped.

Call for a presidential Executive order closing all USA borders to nonessential travel.
