Canada initiates border lockdown amid coronavirus pandemic

Remember all those cries about President Donald Trump being a racist for closing down travel from China on January 31?

Well, nobody said a word when notoriously liberal Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Monday that he was essentially closing Canada off from the world.

Shutting it down

While nobody really wants to admit it, the travel bans Trump put into place on January 31 and after have dramatically reduced the spread of the coronavirus in this country.

Since Trump made his initial move, we have seen numerous countries follow suit. This happened after the accusations of xenophobia were defeated by virtually every medical expert on the coronavirus task force citing the effectiveness of this tactic.

Trudeau was a little late to that party, but on Monday, Power & Politics reported that the Prime Minister declared, “We will be denying entry to Canada to people who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents.”

“Some designated exceptions including for aircrews, diplomats, immediate family members of Canadian citizens and, at this time, U.S. citizens.”

As of Tuesday morning, Canada has reported 424 coronavirus cases, with the majority being concentrated in Ontario and British Colombia.

Pushing self-quarantine

Much like the United States, Breitbart is now reporting that Canada is pushing self-quarantine measures of 14 days for anyone that has traveled abroad once they return to the country.

Trudeau himself is under quarantine after his wife tested positive for the virus last week. The Prime Minister himself has not yet tested positive and his doctors have stated he is showing no signs of the virus.

In addition to the travel bans, more stringent guidelines have been put in place as well as the mass canceling of social gathering events, such as sporting events and concerts.

While some extreme models have predicted close to two million people dying from the virus, they are not taking into account the protective measures that have been put in place.

During President Trump’s Tuesday update, he stated the current massive shutdown of restaurants and entertainment venues is in place for the next two weeks, at which time a decision will be made whether to re-open these venues or not.
