Coronavirus - COVID-19 - 116 cases, 8 deaths, 108 discharged in T&T

Postby Ben_spanna » January 21st, 2020, 7:50 am

With the potential world wide outbreak of this deadly virus Coronavirus in China and Chinese new year being this week coming, there are millions of Chinese nationals that return to China to celebrate, many nationals from Trinidad also go back home.
Should these NAtionals be allowed to return to Trinidad freely after their celebrations and risk a national epidemic?
For once id like to see Trinidad health and immigration act responsibly and bar travelers from re-entering.

Just imagine that this virus can jump from animals to humans...

Good ched, we should also consider those tourists from China who come for carnival...any quarantine procedures etc??

^most viruses that affect humans started out that way as zoonoses.
All the big ones you can think of like HIV, Ebola, H1N5 "bird flu", SARS-CoV (similar to this current one in China), H1N1 swine flu, rabies, etc.

I think I read a BBC article that confirmed the human-to-human transmission, but can't find it.

The CNN article provides a decent summary, but I'd prefer an update from something like the CDC

u can not , in this day and age stop the movements of person.

it will reach trini, just as everything else. thats life - the world is actually a closed environment meaning that it will circumnavigate the entire globe.

Did we have ebola cases?....if authorities are looking into this matter, I suggest quarantine at the airport, necessary checks them and everything else to follow..

the thing about this particular event is that there ARE nationals that have gone back and are travelling back just to celebrate the CHinese new year, then they will return here shortly after.... so it will be possible.. but i guess just as we supposedly have no serious cases of H1nI according to our health figures, i guess we have nothing to worry about.

heard on the news they are looking at using thermal imaging cameras for port of entry points to detect persons who may be sick.

In the first world countries yes maybe, but seeing as we cant even get an immigration processing machine at the airport to work you think we can ever reach that point?

the temperature checks should not be the only form of screening as you could be infected before showing symptoms

Very strange that these dangerous virus seem to always hit China just before they attempt to strengthen trade ties with the rest of the world at their world wide Trade fairs, its almost as if someone doesn’t want China to have visitors. :roll:
But enjoy carnival everyone, jump, inhale and then hopefully not end up in a bed almost on life support.

North Korea has closed its borders to all foreign tourist until the outbreak has been brought under control.. we should do the same and refuse anyone from entering that visited anywhere that had the virus.

Would a national outbreak of super virus with a high mortality rate really be such a terrible thing for T&T? idk about allyuh eh, but to me it sounding kinda attractive & I could see some benefits to it.

Well look how flying just got terrible... speculation is that whilst screening if any passenger is found to have any signs of this virus, the entire plane will be quarantined until the suspected passenger has been tested.
Imagine you fly ah MIA or toronto and one person on the plane have a fever- is the inside of a room you will see for the possible first 1-24 hours of your trip along with your entire flight.......
