Yesterday, March 11, 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared Coronavirus a pandemic.

(Note: coronavirus is officially known as COVID-19 and was previously referred to as the Wuhau virus; it’s also known as the novel coronavirus).

President Trump’s actions regarding Coronavirus have saved American lives. The strategy he is employing is recommended by epidemiologists to slow the spread of the disease, which prevents overwhelming of the medical system, which will save American lives. (See #FlattenTheCurve).

Here is a timeline of the virus and the Trump Administration’s actions:

– January 7 the virus was first identified by China

– January 31 President Trump declared a public health emergency and the Trump Administration enacted mandatory quarantine on military bases of travelers to the US from China

– February 2 the Trump Administration enacted a travel ban of travelers from China

– February 27 the Coronavirus Task Force, led by Vice President Mike Pence was established

– February 29 travel bans were extended for travelers from Italy, South Korea, and Iran and the FDA cut regulations allowing more rapid testing capacity

– March 2 the President met with pharmaceutical executives to discuss treatment options and vaccination plans

– March 3 the CDC lifted all restrictions on testing

– March 6 the President signed an $8.3 Billion emergency spending package

– March 10, after meeting with the President, the insurance industry agreed to waive copayments for patients seeking testing and treatment of coronavirus

– March 11 the President met with banking executives on economic impact and tax relief and extended a 30 day travel ban of travelers from all of Europe excluding the U.K.

Meanwhile here in Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis has taken the following steps to protect Floridians.

– Cancelled all non-essential travel of state employees and asked them to work from home

– Purchased an additional 2,500 testing kits to distribute to hospitals

– Asked that cities and counties cancel or postpone mass gatherings for the next 30 days and to screen attendees at mass gatherings to prevent people that may have the virus from entering

– Signed an executive order prohibiting visitors to assisted living facilities and nursing homes

– Activated the Florida National Guard

As of March 11 there were 29 cases in Florida and 2 deaths. Almost all of these were from people who had traveled elsewhere and returned to Florida. A few have unknown origin. And of course we keep hearing that it’s highly contagious, airborne, and can remain virulent on surfaces for days, while its incubation period is about 5 days on average.

– All Florida state universities are moving to online classes as soon as possible to reduce student gatherings.

– The Tamba Bay Times has published a list of dozens of events that have been cancelled or postponed.

– Florida’s Department of Corrections is prohibiting visits.

– The VA hospital in Orlando is screening everyone that enters the facility.

– In today’s news a 68 year old male that recently traveled elsewhere has tested positive here in Seminole County (at an Advent Health facility in Altamonte Springs)

– A man from New York that attended Bike Week in Daytona has tested positive

– Several new cases have shown up on the west coast of Florida and Pasco County has declared a state of emergency

Seminole County Republican News:
– Glenn Weiner, President of the Republicans for Israel Club, has cancelled his Club’s April 2 meeting.

– Yesterday, at the request of the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF), I sought input from the SCREC Executive Board (Seminole County Republican Executive Committee) about whether to cancel our March 19 meeting.

– I have been in contact with several other County REC chairmen around the state about their plans to proceed or cancel Republican meetings. As of today Broward and Palm Beach counties have cancelled their next REC meetings.

Members of Seminole County’s Republican Executive Committee, who are medical doctors, have asked me to consider cancelling the Party’s March 19 meeting based on their knowledge and expertise.

Based on everything coming from the President, the Governor, the news today of a Seminole case, WHO and CDC guidelines, and input from Republican colleagues, local medical professionals, and others, I have decided to cancel the March 19 Republican Executive Committee meeting.

Until otherwise noted, we will have our next meeting April 16 with the same program, subject to the availability of our speakers.

Chairman, Republican Party of Seminole County

P.S. For the next 30 days all Republican Party events hosted by the The Republican Party of Seminole County are postponed or cancelled
