Apparently going a little off message, Vice President Joe Biden pronounced himself against going anywhere on the subway or on an airplane. If I read him correctly, he doesn’t even believe that people should drive together in a car. And maybe not go to school. Reports ABC News:
Asked by NBC’s Matt Lauer what he would tell a member of his family who came to him and asked whether he should fly to and from Mexico on a commercial airliner in the next week, the vice president gave an answer that goes much farther than the precautions the president suggested last night, or the travelers’ advisories given by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“I would tell members of my family, and I have, ‘I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now,'” the vice president said. “It’s not that he’s going to Mexico, it’s that you’re in a confined aircraft, and one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft.”
“That’s me,” the vice president said.
“I would not be — at this point, if they had another way of transportation — suggesting they ride the subway,” the vice president said. “So from my perspective what relates to mitigation, if you’re out in the middle of a field and someone sneezes, that’s one thing. If you’re in a closed aircraft or a closed container or closed car or closed class room, it’s a different thing.”
No report yet on exactly how this strategy would help stimulate the economy.
