“CNN ‘New Day’ hosts suggested on Monday a travel ban for states like Florida where the number of COVID cases are rising. ‘New Day’ co-host Brianna Keilar told viewers that one in five people hospitalized with COVID-19 in the United States are coming from Florida. She then referenced a comment from CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner. ‘It’s so high in Florida that I think if Florida were another country, we would have to consider banning travel from Florida to the United States. He [DeSantis] needs to understand that he’s painted himself into a corner. People are dying in Florida, it’s going to get much worse. The hospitals are filling with people,’ Reiner said.”
“Fellow co-host John Berman asked CNN analyst Harry Enten, ‘if Florida or Louisiana were foreign countries, would we ban travel at this point?’ The CNN reporter said Dr. Reiner was ‘on to something’ about a travel ban against states like Florida. Enten said countries like the United Kingdom, Greece, and France, which have travel restrictions imposed on them by the CDC, currently have lower COVID rates than Florida and Louisiana” Fox News reports.
