I know what EU did this summer. I realize that it may not affect the president’s travel plans, since he’s just not that into EU. And while I wasn’t planning to get on a plane any time soon, EU shook me all night long with its latest move. You’re probably thinking to yourself, “EU cannot be serious!” But I’ve got nothing against EU. I love EU to death, but I don’t want to do that literally. EU only live once, and whatever doesn’t kill EU makes EU stronger. This story is a lot more ominous than your canceled summer vacation plans. That’s why I got to get EU back in my life, because until I do, it means America is in deep trouble. European Union bars travelers from U.S. citing coronavirus concerns.

+ This is not about politics. It’s about science. One graphic explains why Americans are facing an EU travel ban.

+ It’s not just Europe. States are quarantining each other. New York to require travelers from 16 states to quarantine.

+ America has turned a once in a generation crisis into something much worse. Anthony Fauci: “We are now having 40-plus thousand new cases a day. I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around. And so I am very concerned.”

+ We’re hearing about surging caseloads in Arizona, Texas, and Florida. But even states like California that took the threat seriously are seeing a rise. “‘To some extent I think our luck may have run out,’ said Dr. Bob Wachter, a professor and chair of the department of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. ‘This is faster and worse than I expected. You have to have a ton of respect for this thing. It is nasty and it just lurks and waits to stomp on you if you let your guard down for a second.'”

+ In other news, a flu virus with ‘pandemic potential’ has been found in China.
