Coronavirus: Trump ‘considering quarantining New York’

Source: BBC

US President Donald Trump has said he is considering imposing a quarantine on New York state in a bid to slow the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

“We’d like to see [it] quarantined because it’s a hotspot,” he told reporters. “I’m thinking about that.”

He spoke as confirmed cases in the state increased to more than 52,000, about half of the total in the US.

But New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the idea was “preposterous”, “anti-American” and a “declaration of war”.

Mr Cuomo said the state had already implemented “quarantine” measures, such as banning major gatherings and ordering people to remain at home, but that he would oppose any “lockdown” efforts.

“If you said we were geographically restricted from leaving, that would be a lockdown,” Mr Cuomo told CNN on Saturday.

“Then we would be Wuhan, China, and that wouldn’t make any sense,” he said, adding that this would cause the stock market to crash in a way that would make it impossible for the US economy to “recover for months, if not years”.

“You would paralyse the financial sector,” he said.

  1. 3500 years ago…this is before Muhammed- pbuh-!
    Medicine and religion were closely connected for Jews in ancient times. Priests were “the custodians of public health,” and Jews in biblical times regarded the physician as “the instrument through whom God could affect the cure.” This is the picture we see in Leviticus 13, which, although it may sound somewhat elementary to our ears, was very progressive for its time (around 3500 years ago).

    According to Leviticus 13:21, the priest was to inspect someone who had a disease and could “isolate the affected person for seven days.” He would then re-examine them and could “isolate them for another seven days.” Fourteen days! Sound familiar? The diseased person “must live alone; they must live outside the camp.” And if they did walk around, they had to “wear torn clothes, let their hair be unkempt, cover the lower part of their face and cry out, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’”
