Should the USA: “Expect more worrisome variants after omicron, scientist say,” make us more worrisome or more prudent about travelers entering USA?

The Chicago Tribune articles today covered a host of problems as a result off the Covid Omicron variant that entered the USA from travelers. For example, school closures, garbage pickup, sick workers absent from work, etc. etc. One article gave the main clue why and how the omicron variant entered the USA in November 2021 from travelers from South Africa and lamented that when countries became alerted by South Africa, the result hurt their economy because other countries imminently issue travel restriction bile at the same time the USA removed travel restriction.

Another AP article titled: “Expect more worrisome variants after omicron, more or less reports scientist worries that there are no guarantees the next variant will be less deadly than the omicron and contained this following statement.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate ancient proverbs, an idiom, in hopes the USA Democrat Republic leaders in charge of travel entry into the USA will initiate the same travel restrictions procedures that have been successful in India, and other countries more prudent leadership than the USA.

King Solomon

The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. (Proverb 27: 12)

Woe to the land whose king was a servant and whose princes feast in the morning. (Ecclesiastes 10:16)

Idiom – wear sackcloth and ashes

To act in a way that shows one’s penitence or remorse for one’s misdeeds or poor behavior.

What’s My Point?

In a previous post, I referenced that in India, a plane landed from Italy and of the 165 passengers tested before being allowed to enter their country, each traveler was tested and 125 passengers tested positive for Covid.

My point is the USA does not test inbound travelers, instead they ask for proof of vaccination same as Italy does, but if the passages are not tested before entry into the USA, is it any wonder that Omicron entered the USA and our Nation is experiencing for not being prudent in allowing travelers to be tested/

Instead of being penitent or being remorseful, our Nation is in effect doing nothing to resolve this obvious missed of poor management of allowing infected travelers into the USA.

In My Opinion,

We voters  need to contact our legislators in Congress to manage travel into the USA by testing everyone same as in India and other far wiser management by their leaders.

If we don’t, our Nation in the future will in effect continue to be infected with new Covid variants according to the scientists which somehow our leader claim to listen to but obviously do not.

Or in other words, our leaders in power should be made to wear sackcloth and ashes until they resolve to manage the Covid pandemic in a more wise and prudent manner.

Why is Washington Congress not investigating the current ineffective minimum travel restrictions are not effective and have allowed the Omicron variant into the USA?

You Decide

For example, while India added restricts on Jan 10, 2022, the USA eased travel restrictions on Jan 14, 2022?

Why have or still are unvaccinated border refugees from a host of Nations not being fully vaccinated before being allowed to travel in the USA while at the same time President Biden is chastising USA citizens for not being vaccinated?

If after reading the Source links, is it time for more woe or time to change management of travelers entering the USA?
