    Canada and Mexico have closed their borders and Europe won’t allow flights to land.

    Didn't stop Farage coming back and breaking his 14 day quarantine to be first in the pub. Oh, I forgot, we're not in the EU any more are we. Silly me.

    So Trump got what he wanted after all (sort of).

    Can you post a link to this news story? In your brevity, I am trying to work out what you are posting and why...

    ...and America didn't pay for it - well not in money anyway.

    He's been reported to the police, but it seems doubtful that the police are bothering to check on quarantine breakers.

    USA CV 19 rates are too high so Canada, Mexico and Europe have stopped all but essential travel. Trump has indeed got his way of closing the borders but not quite how he hoped.

    I think we are still the highest deaths per head of population but they must be fast closing in.

    I read that the reason Belgium are top is that every death that may have Covid as a cause is counted. Not the case in other countries. It’s the difference between the normal death rate and pandemic period that is helpful due to different demographics ( eg Italy has a very elderly population). We also have many dieing in excess of normal that are not CV deaths but linked to the disruption to the Health service.

    I don't think the whole of USA needs walling up, if they did this it would solve a lot of problems :D:)

    It's an inaccurate story. The US has had a restricted border agreement with both Canada and Mexico since March. It is reviewed every 30 days. This is either the 3rd or 4th mutually agreed 30 day extension.

    The death rate in Florida has shown no sign of falling since April.

    Well quite.
    Hence my previous question.
    I read the opening post to mean there was a news story about it ie something just announced, and that was certainly the implication in the way it was said. So I just wondered what OP had just read to put it that way.
