Infected people are arriving from China, should they close the borders to the Chinese?

Closing stable door after horse has bolted.

Many horses mate, minimize the damage.

What's this lockdown of 14 cities I read about?

A handful of cities does not a country make. You seem borderline hysteria... are you coming down with something?

That is true but is there no advantage in slowing the rate of infection? Wouldn't that lessen the strain on Thai medical emergency workers and hospitals?

 

The Chinese certainly can't close the door, but they are shutting down tourist areas.

"Chinese tourism continues to be impacted by the spread of the virus.

Beijing is set to suspend all tour groups businesses, even outbound tours, from Monday, according to Global Times. It follows the closure of Shanghai’s Disneyland, and popular Sanya City shutting down all tourist sites."

I am amazed that more than one of these .... think this way.  You eat shellfish at a local restaurant and have an immediate allergic reaction.  The .... on this board tell you to continue eating anyway, you already took a bite, so eat it all.

 

Insanity.

Those cities total 40 million people. 

 

Do you read what you write before hitting the send button?

Was going to suggest just that.

You're contradicting yourself, fella. If they've stopped potential carriers by quarantining those cities, other than trolling esteemed members, just what is the point of your thread?

And with this comparison you again show your lack of knowledge on spreading of viruses.

"Starbucks has announced that it will close all outlets in the Hubei province for the duration of the week long Lunar New Year holiday. This follows a similar announcement by McDonald’s, who will close branches in five cities in Hubei."

The spread of a deadly new virus is accelerating, Chinese President Xi Jinping warned, after holding a special government meeting on the Lunar New Year public holiday.

The country is facing a "grave situation" Mr Xi told senior officials, according to state television.

The coronavirus has killed at least 41 people and infected almost 1,300 since its discovery in the city of Wuhan.

Travel restrictions have already hit several affected cities.

Someone should tell me the benefit to admitting Chinese at this point in history.

Well it seems number 7 is in Chiang Mai at McCormick Hospital.

Sorry in Thai, couldn't find English.

Also another article says they have only just stopped flights from Wuhan to CM.

I have heard through friends that the Wuhan shutdown was known about before implementation, so many people just fled out in haste.
