    In an ironic turn of events, a group of Mexican protestors has apparently blocked part of their border with the US, demanding that Americans stay home instead of being allowed to come into their country where they might spread coronavirus. The US is quickly becoming the new global epicenter for COVID-19.

    Do you agree with these protestors? Why or why not?

    I think that everyone who has corona, should self-isolate, as to not infect others, else corona will never end. Travel to other country is not smart.

    That. Is wonderfully hilarious.

    Yeah, I agree with the Mexicans. I think it's best for all countries right now to minimize possibility of spread. If you're not a citizen, get outta here (wherever 'here' is).

    Oh, I agree with them all right. Karmic boomerang in real time is at play.

    I don't blame them. Who wants Covid 19? USA should have done a better job closing it's border sooner.

    They are only tying to stop those who are legally entering.
    Thus they set up on the road just south of a port of entry.

    so IMO, to be ironic, they would need to be trying to stop the illegals from going into Mexico.

    What to me REALLY amps up the irony is that the US is becoming the epicenter for the virus precisely because of Mr. Trump's incompetence in responding to the situation -- yet it is he who tries to shut out Mexicans.

    Exactly. Would Clinton or Biden have disbanded the pandemic response team or cut funding to the CDC? I think not.

    The virus is spread primarily through droplet transmission. It's not freely floating in the air.

    It takes up to three hours for the droplets to settle out of the air. Where do you think the droplets are, if not in the air?

    BUT Trump might be a visionair, kicking out "china" (huawei) just before corona (or someone else whispered it in his ear). My guess is, that 'he' got a vision about a chinese virus, and naturally 'he' thought about computer virus (backdoors) in all huawei smartphones. 'He' did not see corona coming, but 'he' got it close. It's like "silence before storm", it's all about reading the signs. The more you purify, the better you get at it.
