    Not seeing how that would work. Could you give an example of a coronavirus free state?

    You need to consider the date of the post you’re quoting. In early February of last year there were more Coronavirus free states than not. Oh, the difference a year makes.

    I still stand by that if distancing and masks were actually observed last year, everything would have been fine. Can't fix stupid.

    That is the simple unvarnished truth.

    Different, probably
    "Everything would have been fine", you are delusional.
    Be careful calling people stupid, you might be looking at a mirror.

    And I was really hoping to find an update, not just an old post dragged back to life with no good info added.

    if we had done appropriate distancing, contact tracing, and ppe usage, it would have been completely different. asian countries have seen very low numbers of infections and deaths.

    Careful, reality doesn’t always play well.

    I will go out on a limb and predict that Chuuk and Bikini will not be open to tourism this year. FSM has stopped repatriation of their own citizens due to concerns about new variants of the disease. The Marshall Islands are repatriating a few citizens and essential workers but require a total of 5 weeks of quarantine.

    I was hoping for better news than that. I'm suppose to be on a plane in 6 months heading that way.

    I rebooked my flight to Chuuk and Palau via NRT for this April last summer, after cancelling last Feb.
    I cancelled it again - agree that it is not gonna happen this year or most likely the next (at least not hassle/quarantine free)
