Delta, American Airlines Suspend All Flights to China Amid Deadly Coronavirus Outbreak

On Friday, Delta Airlines announced that they would be temporarily suspending all flights from the U.S. to China beginning Feb. 6 through April 30 amid the deadly coronavirus outbreak.

“The last China-bound flight departing the U.S. will leave on Monday, Feb. 3 with the last return flight back to the U.S. departing China on Feb. 5,” the airline wrote in a press release. “The airline will continue to monitor the situation closely and may make additional adjustments as the situation continues to evolve.”

American Airlines also announced on Friday that they would be halting U.S.-China operations, effective immediately.

“Based on the U.S. Department of State’s recent increase of the China Travel Advisory to a Level 4 (Do Not Travel), American is suspending its operations to and from the Chinese mainland beginning today through March 27,” the airline wrote in a press release. “Our teams are contacting affected customers directly to accommodate their needs. We will continue to evaluate the schedule for March 28 and beyond and make any adjustments as necessary.”

The imaginations are adding fuel to the scare mongering...forced vaccinations coming? forced quarantines?

Coronaviruses hit seniors the hardest

Close to 10,000 people have contracted the new coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China—more cases than SARS in 2003. The preliminary fatality rate for 2019-nCoV hovers around 3%—which is low, but still concerning because of the number of cases accumulating. “During the original SARS outbreak, we found that the fatality rate was 10%,” says Vineet Menachery, an immunologist at the University of Texas Medical Branch who studies how coronaviruses affect aging immune systems.

Fury in China as footage appears to show officials, taking doctors' face masks

https://www.msn.com/en-nz/news/world/fury-in-china-as-footage-appears-to-show-officials-taking-doctors-face-masks/ar-BBZzR8G?li=BBqdk7Q

Inevitable when the political people consider themselves a class above the rest.

---

On a related note, to show that Thais' self interest is not dead. True story, last cupola days.

I have an associate in Laos, who ordered and paid for 4 containers of face masks. Yes the ones Asian people seem to love.

These had to be shipped to China via Thailand, don't ask me why, that's irrelevant.

So on arrival at Thailand, the local official man, instead of demanding money or sexual favours to release the shipment, appropriated them, saying, "Why should China have them? I look after my own country first."

Just another trustworthy official.

Virus deaths in China rise to 360, exceeding SARS mainland toll

China's death toll from the coronavirus epidemic soared to 360 on Monday, with deepening global concern about the outbreak and governments closing their borders to people from China.

The fresh toll came a day after China imposed a lockdown on a major city far from the epicentre and the first fatality outside the country was reported in the Philippines.

Authorities in Hubei, the province at the epicentre of the outbreak, reported 56 new fatalities. That took the toll in China to 360, exceeding the 349 mainland fatalities from the 2002-3 SARS outbreak.

Struggling to contain the virus, authorities took action in the eastern city of Wenzhou on Sunday, closing roads and confining people to their homes.

Wenzhou is some 800 kilometres from Wuhan, the metropolis at the heart of the health emergency.

Since emerging out of Wuhan late last year, the new coronavirus has infected more than 16,400 people across China and reached 24 nations.

The G7 countries -- Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States -- have all confirmed cases of the virus. They will discuss a joint response, German Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Sunday.

In Thailand, which has 19 confirmed cases, doctors said Sunday an elderly Chinese patient treated with a cocktail of flu and HIV drugs had shown dramatic improvement and tested negative for the virus 48 hours later.

Most of the infections overseas have been detected in people who travelled from Wuhan, an industrial hub of 11 million people, or surrounding areas of Hubei province.

...

China's efforts have included extraordinary quarantines in Wuhan and surrounding cities, with all transport out banned, effectively sealing off more than 50 million people.

But 10 days after locking down Wuhan, authorities imposed similar draconian measures on Wenzhou, a coastal city of nine million people in Zhejiang province, part of the eastern industrial heartland that has powered China's economic rise over recent decades.

Only one resident per household is allowed to go out every two days to buy necessities, and 46 highway toll stations have been closed, authorities announced.

The city had previously closed public places such as cinemas and museums, and suspended public transport.

Zhejiang has 661 confirmed infections, with 265 of those in Wenzhou, according to the government.

This is the highest tally for any province in China after ground-zero Hubei.

How well we know....sadly, the future generations of the USA will be paying for all the sins going on now.

Hope any business you are conducting with China will survive this bump.

Bangkok ‘most at risk’ for virus spread

Bangkok and Hong Kong are most at risk from the spread of coronavirus based on air travellers expected to arrive from affected cities in China, population mapping experts at the University of Southampton concluded. 

Sydney is 12th, New York 16th and London 19th among 30 major cities, the researchers said. Thailand and Japan are the most at-risk countries, followed by the US (6th), Australia (10th) and UK (17th).

The research is based 2013-15 data on typical patterns of movement by people in China during the long Lunar New Year celebrations, including the public holiday that was extended a week ago.

Sir, rubber gloves are the solution . This disease is a smear-transfer type.
