With Coronavirus Spreading, Canada Must Restrict Incoming Flights From China

The government must act to protect the health of the Canadian People.

Fears are growing around the world as the coronavirus in China continues to spread across the country, and to countries nearby.

China has confirmed that the coronavirus is now spreading from person to person, and nearly 300 people are believed to have been infected within China.

As reported by the AP, “Concerned about a global outbreak similar to SARS, another coronavirus that spread from China to more than a dozen countries in 2002-2003, numerous nations have adopted screening measures for travelers from China, especially those arriving from Wuhan, the central city where the virus appears to have originated.”

Reportedly, The U.S., Australia, Japan, and South Korea have increased airport screenings.

Yet, with the Lunar New Year travel surge approaching, it’s essential that Canada take measures to protect the health of the Canadian People.

The Canadian government must impose restrictions on flights from China to Canada, until the coronavirus is under control. It’s far easier to contain a virus before it arrives, than to deal with it once it is in the country and spreading.

Considering that China’s government is already discouraging travel, it’s obvious that they know something very serious is going on, and Canada must take swift action before that danger is here.
