FERNANDO: Half-Assing a Global Pandemic

Amid the worsening Coronavirus epidemic, the movement towards a wider ban on travel with China is underway in much of the world.

Hong Kong has cut off rail and ferry links with mainland China.

Many airlines are either cutting back, or outright ending flights to China.

A pilots union in the US is suing their airline, saying they don’t want to fly into China.

China itself is undertaking the most desperate containment measures seen in recent history, with over 50 million people under quarantine, and entire cities basically cut off from the outside world.

The death toll continues to rise, human-to-human transmission has been confirmed, and each day brings further concern and fear in much of the world.

And now, the World Health Organization has declared a global ‘Public Health Emergency.’

Clearly, the Coronavirus is something that must be taken very seriously.
