EU Versus Indonesia

Among the biggest frustrations is the apparent lack of logic behind the U.S. travel ban. Along with the Schengen zone, the U.S. has banned travel from places where coronavirus is running rampant such as India and Brazil. Not on the list are other nations with high infection rates, such as Mexico or Indonesia.

[...]

A July 7 letter signed by a bipartisan group of 75 members of the U.S. Congress urged the administration to lift the travel restrictions, arguing that studies have shown it’s unlikely inbound travelers will carry or transmit the virus. They said keeping entry restrictions in place would result in the loss of 1.1 million jobs and $175 billion by the end of the year.

Who benefits from slowing down the recovery this year so that next year's economic numbers look better? Mid-term elections anyone?

Is travel to and from Mexico no problem because politicians like their little trips to Cancun?

So many questions...

Yeah, bizarre!  It seems quite arbitrary in how they open up travel and borders.  With the delta variant, it's just going to make it longer and harder to open.  Not sure why non-essential travel between Canada and U.S. isn't open...Canada has nearly 80% vaccinated with first dose and closing in on 50% with second dose.  Cheers!

COVID has been the gift that keeps on giving for democrats. The ability to suspend constitutional rights, totally rewrite how elections are conducted, bribe citizens with free money, make folks reliant on big government, censor any speech that isnt advantageous to them, play arrogant lecturer with respect to "following the science" or even what constitutes science for that matter, and the best of them all, general subservience of 52% of the population. Pathetic.

It's because BIden's administration wants the unvaccinated Americans to stay home in the US where they cannot escape the Delta variant.  Can't you see?  It's a plot to kill off unvaccinated Republican voters.  If they vacation in Canada where you are 80% vaccinated they might have a chance of avoiding infection.

Some news titles from yesterday:

"‘Huge disappointment’ in EU over Biden’s continuing travel ban"

"Germany Demands Fair Play From Biden on U.S. Travel Rules ..."

President Joe Biden's administration [...] hampering German business interests by continuing to restrict European travelers from entering the U.S..

EU is weak..

I do agree. Its amazing there's folks who refuse to get vaccinated. Again, maybe younger people its different, but your stereotypical red state antivaxxer looks much more like, idk, a hippopotamus than an Olympic athlete. Additionally, how many with concerns over a vaccine have drank alcohol, smoked, or done illicit drugs? Kinda dumb to pick and chose which risks we take seriously.
