    A 20-year-old Chinese woman from Wuhan travelled 675km (400 miles) north to Anyang where she infected 5 relatives, without ever showing signs of infection, Chinese scientists reported, offering new evidence that the virus can be spread asymptomatically.

    My guess, is he will be flagged to be asked to do 2 weeks home isolation due to his history when he returns (he's now on the "no fly list" by the US government. ) Whether he will do so or flaunt going out to dinner in California remains to be seen. I'll try to follow with updates I find on the threads.

    Kuwait's civil aviation authority has decided to stop all flights to and from Iran amid fears from coronavirus outbreak, the state news agency said, citing an official statement.

    Kuwaiti nationals arriving from Iran will be subjected to quarantine, adding that residents or those with entry permission who were in Iran during the past two weeks will be barred.

    Moreover, any foreign travellers coming from Iran will also be denied entry.

    Thank You
    Every time I see a news report I cant help but notice that masks are not worn properly and hope these people are safe.
    Even though you must be fit tested for the proper size and style of N95 masks and shown how to wear it properly its better than nothing I guess.
    The other masks, ones with visors and ones without are also not worn properly I notice.

    5 to 10 days for virus lifespan on surface areas.

    Henry, do you mind if I ask you a few questions?
    Do you expect them within a week?
    Will your level of reassurance go up upon receipt?
    Did you order them as a precautionary measure?
    Do you live in area with test positive cases?
    When and where will you begin to use them?

    Untraceable coronavirus cells emerge in three countries amid pandemic

    Doctors are unable to identify the source of coronavirus clusters in South Korea, Singapore and Iran, the World Health Organization said Saturday.

    Doctors began floating fears of a pandemic — which occurs when a disease spreads to two continents — on Friday as two more died in Iran, the number of cases in South Korea doubled, and Italy saw its first death.

    ''1st case in Canada with no connection to China

    Canada's ninth presumptive case of coronavirus is a woman in her 30s who recently travelled to Iran and is now recovering at home in British Columbia.

    Health officials were surprised to learn she had not travelled to China or any of its neighbouring countries, and have classified the case as a "sentinel event" — one that originated from a region that is completely unexpected.

    Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.'s provincial health officer, said they are investigating where the woman may have contracted the virus, working alongside the Public Health Agency of Canada. The woman had a travelling companion, was visiting family and is now in isolation at home.

    "Until very recently, we didn't consider Iran as a place of transmission of COVID-19," Henry said in an interview. "So that set off quite a number of warning bells for us."

    Henry said the investigation continues into where the woman travelled, but she hadn't been to the city of Qom, where a handful of cases have been recorded. "She did report at the airport [in Tehran] that there were quite a lot of people who were sick and who were wearing masks," she said.

    The answers are important to public health measures aimed at containing the virus, such as whether Canada should expand its border-screening questionnaires for travellers from places beyond the epicentre in China's Hubei province.''

    Tallahassee manufacturer could be closing due to coronavirus outbreak

    The tech-company, which makes heating and air conditioning systems, is completely dependent on the Chinese supply chain.

    The supplier of a critical component, a special magnet, is located close to the affected area in Wuhan, China, where transportation and manufacturing has ceased. The Tallahassee manufacturer began to see the impact on February 10 and anticipates it will come to a head in about 10 days.
