Vice President Mike Pence reportedly directed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to use its authority to seal U.S. borders as COVID-19 was spreading rapidly, though scientists for the agency advised the action would not contain the virus.

According to former officials, the top physician at the CDC responsible for issuing such orders had refused to comply with an administrative directive regarding the border closure on grounds there was not a legitimate public health reason to do so, The Associated Press reported.

After the doctor refused, Pence — who had been placed in charge of the government’s coronavirus task force — got involved, the AP said. The vice president called the CDC’s director, Dr. Robert Redfield, and instructed him to issue the order under his agency’s special legal powers, which apply during pandemics.
Wow, what a surprise.

But he nor they really closed the border. Europeans were coming over. And most of those Chinese new year party goers lived in Europe or the us and came home through Europe.
I think there are times to shut all the borders down but they never have in modern times; I don't know why. They never even closed the border till we found who did 911. just one maybe two days. and Saudis were coming and going even then.
I'll tell ya what's a shame is that the CDC's directive for masks and social distancing was ignored. And right now they have a plan for how to reopen that's being shoved in a drawer in favor of pandemonium.
