GOP Senators Demand Biden Ban Travel From Red China To Prevent Mystery Illness Spread

A mysterious respiratory illness is once again spreading in China. Until we know more about what could be a new pathogen, the United States must do everything possible to prevent the illness from reaching our shores.

U.S. Senator Mike Braun joined Senator Marco Rubio and colleagues sent a letter to President Joe Biden urging him to restrict travel between the U.S. and China until we know more about this disease.

“At this moment, the world faces another unknown pathogen emanating from the PRC that could spread to other countries, including the United States. The PRC has reported an increase in this mystery illness—which it claims to be pneumonia caused by known pathogens—since mid-October. This illness reportedly is a special hazard for children and has overrun hospitals in the north of the country. The World Health Organization (WHO) says it is unclear if the disease is due to an overall increase in respiratory infections or separate events. If history is any indication, we have cause to be concerned.

“[W]e should not wait for the WHO to take action given its track record of slavish deference to the [Chinese Communist Party]. We must take the necessary steps to protect the health of Americans, and our economy. That means we should immediately restrict travel between the United States and the [People’s Republic of China] until we know more about the dangers posed by this new illness. A ban on travel now could save our country from death, lockdowns, mandates, and further outbreaks later.”

Signers of the letter are Senators Mike Braun, Marco Rubio, J.D. Vance, Rick Scott, Tommy Tuberville.

The full text of the letter follows:

Dear Mr. President:

In light of an unknown respiratory illness spreading throughout the People’s Republic of China (PRC), we call on you to immediately restrict travel between the United States and the PRC. As you know, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has a long history of lying about public health crises. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the CCP’s obfuscation of the truth, and lack of transparency, robbed the United States of vital knowledge about the disease and its origin.

On January 31, 2020, President Trump issued an order to restrict travel from the PRC into the United States to protect the American people and counter the spread of COVID-19. Many officials and commentators—including you—criticized his decision as being influenced by “xenophobia.” But history and common sense show his decision was the right one.

At this moment, the world faces another unknown pathogen emanating from the PRC that could spread to other countries, including the United States. The PRC has reported an increase in this mystery illness—which it claims to be pneumonia caused by known pathogens—since mid-October. This illness reportedly is a special hazard for children and has overrun hospitals in the north of the country. The World Health Organization (WHO) says it is unclear if the disease is due to an overall increase in respiratory infections or separate events. If history is any indication, we have cause to be concerned.

The WHO has requested that the CCP share “detailed information” about the mystery illness. However, CCP has an incentive to lie, just as they did throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and any new pathogen could derail its efforts to stimulate its economy. Besides, we should not wait for the WHO to take action given its track record of slavish deference to the CCP. We must take the necessary steps to protect the health of Americans, and our economy. That means we should immediately restrict travel between the United States and the PRC until we know more about the dangers posed by this new illness. A ban on travel now could save our country from death, lockdowns, mandates, and further outbreaks later.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

The UK’s Daily Mail reported CDC director Mandy Cohen said Thursday that her agency is confident the outbreak is being caused by known pathogens that are rebounding post-pandemic.


“We believe there is no new or novel pathogen,” Cohen told House lawmakers.


“These are related to existing pathogens — COVID, flu, RSV” and mycoplasma, a bacterium that can infect the lungs.


Last week the Daily Mail reported how one small county in Ohio had also seen “extremely high” cases of childhood pneumonia, some of whom tested positive for mycoplasma.


More than 140 children in Warren County have been struck down by pneumonia since August. Mycoplasma is not routinely tested for, which makes exact case numbers hard to come by.


Western Massachusetts is also recording high levels of “walking pneumonia”, a milder form of the condition for which mycoplasma can be a cause.


Dr Amesh Adalja, from Johns Hopkins University, told DailyMail.com the global phenomenon is not being caused by a single virus, but the mixture of several pathogens hitting at once.


He said mycoplasma was “cyclical”, hitting in waves around every five years. “Mycoplasma goes through epidemic cycles every few years and that may be what’s occurring globally at the moment.”


Trust in the CDC and public health agencies is at an all-time low due to the lies and obfuscation Fauci, Birx and other bureaucrats promoted about COVID. Can we take a chance they are lying again? The Capitol Switchboard is (202-224-3121), call today and tell your Senators and Representative you demand that you want travel from Red China banned until we have answers about this disease attacking our children.
