Fauci: U.S. Stopping Travel ‘Very Early’ from China ‘Has Gone a Long Way’ in Fight Against Coronavirus
FAUCI: "The reason I think there is a real problem, one of the things we did right was very early cut off travel from China to the United States. Because outside of China, where it originated, the countries in the world that have it are through travel, either directly from China or indirectly from someone who went someplace and then came to that particular country. Our shutting off travel from China and, more recently, travel from Europe, has gone a long way to not seeding very, very intensively the virus in our country. Unfortunately, Italy did not do that. They had an open border, they let people in. And until they really knew they were in trouble, then the cat was out, the horse was out of the barn and that was it."
