The Pentagon imposes restrictions on the movement of the military within the United States

The Pentagon imposes restrictions on the movement of its military personnel and members of their families throughout the United States in connection with the outbreak of coronavirus. This was announced by First Deputy Secretary of Defense David Norkvist.


A memorandum circulated by the Pentagon states that the imposition of travel restrictions on military personnel and their families is due to the continued spread of the new coronavirus. Restrictions come into force on March 16 and will last until May 11.

These prohibitions are necessary to maintain alertness, limit the continued spread of the virus and preserve the health and well-being of military personnel, civilian personnel of the Ministry of Defense, their families and the communities in which we live

- the document says.

The US Department of Defense prohibits any travel within the country, with the exception of some cases specifically specified in the memorandum. Movement is permitted in cases where it is “necessary for the fulfillment of the assigned tasks”, “necessary for humanitarian reasons”, or “required due to extreme conditions”.

Previously, the Pentagon imposed a 60-day travel ban on US troops and their families in the countries most affected by the coronavirus.

As reported, on Friday in the United States introduced a nationwide emergency regime. The number of cases of infection with a new coronavirus in the United States amounted to 2033, 47 people died.

    Yes, enter already full quarantine. Why trifles then?
    I wonder how things are with coronavirus in Cuba and North Korea.
    It’s practically closed to all countries, and in theory everything should be zero.

      how are things with coronavirus in Cuba

      Cuba is not a closed country. As of March 12, the first three infected were recorded in Cuba. It is not known about the DPRK ...

          In Italy, the Chinese began. Northern Italy, there are concentrated clothing factories. The outbreak of the disease occurred just at the end of the Chinese Nezavisimaya Gazeta when hired workers, a cheap slave force returned from home. In general, it turned out to be not so cheap.

            And you do not jerk. It will be necessary to fight - they will, it will be necessary to climb under the tank.
            You must have forgotten that the US Army, unlike 98% of the armies of the rest of the world, is ready and can conduct combat operations at the epicenter of a nuclear explosion and it has everything it needs for this.
            The Italians also giggled over the Chinese in January, and now they bury 200-250 people a day.
            Yes, and I would advise you still not to think that Russia and you personally will bypass this 100%, no one can give a guarantee.
            As for the US ban on the movement of the military, that’s right. A large number of people immediately turn off “migration”; moreover, the military are disciplined, only it had to be done yesterday.

      Introduced. Trump announced the introduction of an emergency mode in the country. All educational institutions are closed, all events with the mass participation of people are stopped, those workers who can work remotely, i.e. also left home.
      As for S. Korea, then it is also a closed country so that neither of whom knows anything about what is happening. But given close contacts with China, it is quite possible and there.
      We are also actively preparing. An infectious diseases hospital is being built at an accelerated pace in Moscow. Sobyanin allocated as much as 43 hectares of land for the construction. Such a nice plot. For us, it’s bad that according to a doctor from Milan we need ventilators (artificial lung ventilation). He complained that in Milan there are only 800 of them, it is interesting that we have so much for the whole country.
      We expect a surge after May 10. Well, there is more of a political component to both forecasters and those who deny.

        That’s for sure: a referendum must be held on April 22, then marked on May 9, and then at least the grass does not grow.
        We ourselves need to quarantine, albeit funny, albeit stupid, but how many lives we will save, though ...
        They say that the majority of deaths occur in people over 60 - why don’t you solve the pension problem?

      and in North Korea?

      Kimovtsy in early February closed the borders. Absolutely. They gathered all the diplomats in the country in one complex, and later planned to load them on a ship and send them to Vladivostok.

    Everything is very foggy there, in the USA. There were not enough tests, and so far no one has seen the real picture ... And the panic is already "covering"!

    All massively on holiday in Italy, these hoaxes of these Yankees themselves spread this infection all over the world, and now for the alibi and their own people they are still poisoned, cynicism is of the highest degree, although it is no wonder that in their history there are WTC twin towers.

    The world is waiting for another - when the United States restricts the movement of its military outside its island. It’s time to put all of your AUG into quarantine in the Bermuda Triangle. yes

    ================
    Ethnicity of America (d \ politicians) means nothing.
    It's amazing that they made such a decision. Nowhere \ no one to recruit ranks !? hmm
    But in general ... dreams that more reasonable men would come to power (both in Europe and America).
    Who appreciates the masculine \ family. Look who is in power !? Mostly "cabbage rolls", or those who do not have children.
    Don't you, organized crime groups, etc., bother you !? that the world began to rule inadequate !?
    When a man is a MUZHIK, then thoughts and cerebellum in another way “work”.
    Think about the opposition (against Russia).
    Then it may be too late ... Although ... to whom I say.

    Do not hang all the dogs on the same Americans. It began in China and the peddlers were not only the Chinese, but everyone else. Somewhere more, somewhere less. Or that we have registered patients, including and in Moscow, too, the Americans are to blame? And the fact that they introduced stricter rules is understandable. Many would do well to introduce such bans. it’s better to always overdo it.

    Why does our MO not introduce a ban on the movement of the military within the Russian Federation?

    After all, you know how it is with us. "Until the thunder strikes, the man will not cross himself." Even in the conditions of influenza epidemics I do NOT remember NEVER that employees of institutions that could work remotely were transferred to such a regime. Worked in the office. But sick or not sick - this is how the card will fall
