Will states close their own borders?

That doesn't matter. Every state already has the virus. Closing state borders does nothing but add to the already stupid level of panic.

The unprecedented (that word again) panic is more contagious than the virus itself.

Back in 2009, despite the UK tabloids' best efforts, claiming we were running and screaming to the hills...



... it was more or less literally business as usual, especially without Facebook and Twitter at popular enough levels to stoke a wider panic, and hence the hospitals managed to cope.

It's a vicious conundrum - panic fills the hospitals, hence the need for lock-downs to control hospital intakes, leaving us financially crippled.

Canada is closing our Provincial Borders soon. May be as early as this week.

Wonder how they are going to regulate this.

I think it could be done with the National Guard perhaps, it would no be legal as the constitution gives the federal government the power to regulate interstate commerce. Maybe a county could do it legally?

I for one am totally for Georgia closing it's borders.
But not exactly for the same reason.
That would be a thread on it's own
