    Option 1) Close the airport to direct and indirect Asian travelers now.
    Option 2) Wait 3 weeks and then tell Canadians to avoid hospitals in Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa and Montreal.

    During the last SARS outbreak Canada chose option 2.

    China has already closed the border around the region there that the outbreak started in to try to limit it spreading through the rest of China. All planes, trains and roads are now closed from entering and exiting and they have in effect quarantined that region.


    BTW, it has already spread to the USA and Australia now.

    Three Chinese cities on lockdown, travel disrupted amid coronavirus outbreak

    Chinese health officials said Wednesday the new coronavirus can spread via respiratory transmission, heightening fears of a growing epidemic.


    BEIJING — Millions of Chinese had to cancel travel plans and hunker down in their homes to avoid exposure to a new, mysterious coronavirus Thursday as three cities in central China went on lockdown to curb the spread of the deadly virus that has already claimed 17 lives.

    Health officials said that as of Wednesday more than 570 cases of the coronavirus known as 2019-nCoV have been confirmed across China. New cases have also been popping up outside the country’s borders, including two in neighboring Hong Kong and one in Singapore on Thursday, as well as one in the U.S. earlier this week.

    They are warning the virus could spread even further. Officials at the World Health Organization (WHO) are expected to hold a press conference later on Thursday to announce whether it can be classed as a global emergency.

    People across China told NBC News the virus has disrupted their travel plans — just as the country is getting ready to celebrate the Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival, later this week, during which millions of people are expected travel both inside and outside China.

    Wouldn't make any difference. People will travel to USA and Mexico and the virus will then come to Canada via our southern border. Or people will travel to Europe and it will then come to Canada via that route.

    Closing our border to direct flights from China is totally pointless. People and the virus will just travel here via indirect routes.

    At this time the virus has already jumped both borders and oceans so it is out there.

    This is the kind of thing only a dictatorship could even consider, and in the end it won't help. People and things need to move into and out of a city of 11 million. The virus will simply hop a ride on someone. It is also impossible to completely eliminate any kind of travel for 11 million people.

    This kind of thing was tried back in medieval times with the Plague and it didn't work then, in a time when quarantines could be enforced by the threat of death. It certainly won't work now.

    Chinese military and police have now been reported to have quarantined at least 18 million people and blocked their moving in or out of effected regions by closing all roads, airports and train stations from those regions. Only those with special permits and reasons like medical monitoring staff and food or medical supplies delivery can get in or out.

    I heard the shelves are beginning to get cleared out in the grocery stores.

    Food and supplies have to go in and manufactured products, garbage etc have to get out. Can only quarantine 11 million people for so long before shit gets medieval.
