Byrne Calls to Suspend Travel from China Due to Coronavirus
Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) issued the following statement calling for an immediate suspension of all travel from China to the United States due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Congressman Byrne said: “The Chinese coronavirus is a serious global health threat whose severity and complexity is not yet understood. Unfortunately, the danger posed to Americans is made worse by a Chinese government that cannot be trusted regarding its efforts to contain the virus.
“Because of the severity of this threat, I am calling for an immediate suspension of all travel from China to the United States until officials at the Departments of State, Health & Human Services, and Homeland Security can confirm it is safe to resume. We must always put the health and safety of the American people first.”
