There are both floating around 1-2 cases per day and have been for a bit.

If they cut off the rest of the world, it’s quite possible that both could be islands (Hawaii quite literally) without the virus where people who lived there could go on completely normally.

Who goes back and forth to Alaska? What percentage is tourist? I thought it was all oil and natural resources.

Hawaii is megafucked.

There is robust trade back and forth between Seattle/Tacoma and Alaska. Container ships and also ATBs pushing tank barges full of oil products. Alaska does not manufacture a ton of consumer goods.

Hawaii is the same thing.

Both states have lots of tourism, but Hawaii depends on it more.

Just getting supplies in and out is unlikely to spread the virus. If they keep people out and just unload supplies, the risk of infection seems low.

Ya, but no masks and bullshit social distancing.

New Zealand actually has a shot at this too. I have not looked into it much, but I imagine some random small islands have no cases. I know St. Helena has none, for example.

Right because in 6 weeks they might actually be able to get it to zero. Because you can’t drive to Hawaii they can actually quarantine all visitors for two weeks. An island or effectively an island with very low cases is the only place lockdowns could make sense.

I think it is stupid because basically it means no one can come and go from the island easily for perhaps years and it probably won’t work, but, in theory, it is interesting.

This is the wrong mentality. No life with the containment measures needed to do this is a life worth living. You have to extinguish it in your mind brother.

If the only containment measure is people can’t come in, that would be worth it to me.

If TRUMP had put a quarantine on NYC and it’s suburbs early, it would have had a massive reduction on cases in the Amtrak corridor. If TRUMP had banned air travel everywhere when he did China, it would have reduced cases.

The lesson of this to me is actually the reverse of Hawaii as an island, it’s that, if there is an outbreak, you lock up the area with the outbreak and make it an island, don’t let people leave, don’t let people in, deploy resources to track down those infected, but don’t let anyone out.

Apparently it is legal, and at this point we should have nuked china in January and the world would be a better place.

People forget how easy it is to play armchair quarterback months later.

Leaving aside the constitutionality of what Trump "should have done" there are myriad obstacles to "shutting down all air travel" and imposing a complete lockdown of NY state at the executive level when nobody has died yet, particularly when impeachment hearings and DNC primaries are in full swing

He could have said everyone coming to the US has a two week quarantine and no more flights in except for US citizens.
