Demand for travel ban between US-China

The World Health Organization (WHO) has appealed to China to present comprehensive information regarding the recent increase in respiratory diseases and pneumonia in children.

Senators Rubio, JD Vance, Rick Scott, Tommy Tuberville, and Mike Braun wrote in the letter, "Dear President, in light of an unknown respiratory illness spreading throughout the People's Republic of China (PRC), we call on you to immediately restrict travel between the United States and China. "During the COVID-19 pandemic, the CCP did not know about the disease due to its lack of transparency and concealment of the truth," the letter said.

We shouldn't wait- US Senators

Throughout the COVID pandemic, the WHO repeatedly expressed concern about the lack of openness and cooperation shown by Chinese authorities in dealing with the pandemic. This means that until China learns more about the dangers of this new disease, we should immediately restrict us-China travel, this can save our country from deaths and lockdowns.

Defense of former President Donald Trump's decision

The senators defended former US President Donald Trump's decision to restrict travel from China to the US in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. The letter claimed that the travel ban, which came into effect on January 31, 2020, was criticised by many, during which time Trump was accused of "xenophobia" and "discrimination". However, US senators argued that the decision to ban travel was correct. "History and common sense show that Trump's decision was correct.
