As the coronavirus continues to spread, public health officials have warned that the U.S. could face a similar situation to Italy within the next 10 to 15 days. The entirety of Italy is currently on lockdown, with all public gatherings banned — including soccer matches.
“Do you know how bad things have to be for Italians to cancel soccer matches?” said Late Night host Seth Meyers during Wednesday’s episode. “Italians love soccer more than they love talking with their hands, and they love talking with their hands.”
President Donald Trump gave a national address concerning coronavirus (officially called COVID-19) on Wednesday evening, announcing a 30-day suspension of travel into the U.S. from Europe (excluding the UK). However, Meyers noted the Trump’s messaging concerning the coronavirus hasn’t been very reassuring — or accurate — up to this point, referring to his statement on Tuesday that “it’s really working out and a lot of good things are gonna happen.”
“The World Health Organisation just called it a pandemic, and the president sounds like your stoner friend trying to get you through a bad acid trip,” said Meyers. “‘Don’t worry bro, just stay calm, a lot of good things are gonna happen!'”
