These make for quite the shots and chaser.
First, from late January/early February of 2020:
JUST IN: The Trump administration has announced a ban on foreign national travel for those who have been in China within the last 14 days https://t.co/oBOXSrj8up

We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency.

And now this from yesterday:
JUST IN: President Biden is expected to impose travel ban Monday for most non-US citizens traveling from South Africa, 2 White House officials say; Biden is also expected to reinstate restrictions affecting travel from the UK, Ireland, and parts of Europe. https://t.co/G41eqYBroH
