3/17/20, Activist Judges Blocked Trump’s Iran Travel Ban, Now NYC’s Outbreak is Due to Travel from Iran,” Big League Politics, Jose Nino

“Daniel Horowitz of Conservative Review made an interesting observation on March 16, 2020.

He tweeted, Nearly the entire outbreak in NY came from a traveler from Iran, a place that was supposed to have a travel ban, but thanks to lower courts continuing to militate against Scotus decision, it was rendered moot.“

On March 1, 2020 New York did confirm its first case of the Wuhan virus.

“The patient, a woman in her late 30s, contracted the virus while traveling abroad in Iran, and is currently isolated in her home,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declared in a statement.

The woman resides in Manhattan, and Cuomo reported that a lab in Albany confirmed her test.

“The patient has respiratory symptoms, but is not in serious condition and has been in a controlled situation since arriving to New York,” Cuomo stated.

He added that the case should not cause a massive stir.

“There is no cause for surprise — this was expected. As I said from the beginning, it was a matter of when, not if there would be a positive case of novel coronavirus in New York,” Cuomo said.

There is no reason for undue anxiety the general risk remains low in New York. We are diligently managing this situation and will continue to provide information as it becomes available,” he continued.

Lower courts have tried messing with Trump’s sensible travel ban from several Islamic countries. Thankfully, the Supreme Court has stepped in to uphold these bans….

When countries like Iran are already plagued with so many cases of the Wuhan virus, it makes zero sense for people to travel there.”
