How Coronavirus Impacts the Political World

The Coronavirus is perhaps the most prevalent virus in recent memory, and it is definitely altering the way politicians are able to campaign. Let’s look at the some of the domestic impacts:

*Rallies- Rallies can have anywhere from 500 to 20,000 people at a time, and with the latest outbreak, some have opted to cancel or delay their planned events. Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders cancelled rallies in Cleveland, Ohio just yesterday. President Trump recently hosted a rally in North Carolina and has yet to cancel any further rallies.

*Debates- The upcoming democratic debate scheduled for March 15 in Phoenix, Arizona will not have an audience. Both Biden and Sanders requested this change. Here is a list of countries that have complete or partial quarantines:

*China- Wuhan, Hubei Province, and other surrounding areas

*Italy- entire country

*Israel- 14 day self quarantine for anyone entering the country

*Thailand- 14 day self quarantine for anyone entering the country

Embassies are closed, some of the UN meetings have been postponed, and stocks across the world have plummeted. The Dow Jones dropped more than 1,000 points earlier this week, it’s largest since the 2008 recession. And just this day, the World Health Organization declared the virus as a “pandemic.”

I won’t be giving out any medical advice on this post, but be smart and safe! -ThatPoliticalKid
