Some very good points in that article. There's a post elsewhere on BE about not buying any more Chinese takeaways and not going into shops with Chinese staff.

Aussies isolate the virus, paving the way for parallel vaccine research with other countries.

Air Canada is suspending service to Beijing and Shanghai through end of February. BA has done the same to mainland China, American Airlines plans to suspend service between Los Angeles and Shanghai and Beijing from Feb 9th to March 27th citing decreased demand to China.

Cathay Pacific has reduced flight to mainland China by roughly half.

Air India is suspending Delhi-Shanghai.

Canada needs to build a wall and the coronavirus is going to pay for it.

Researchers at Melbourne's Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity have become the first to recreate the virus outside of China.
Conspiracy theorists suggest that perhaps it was created in a lab.. https://www.globalresearch.ca/chinas...-facts/5701662

The evil Dr Barlow made it in his lab on Skull Mountain in the Caymans. There's a conspiracy theory for you.

My guess it will either be Air Canada or a government plane if Canadian military has anything capable, or maybe they will outsource to US, I can't find anything beyond vague articles saying Canada is planning to send a plane but no mention of who is providing the plane, but if going with a passenger airline, my money would be on Air Canada.

US has it's first case of human to human transmission, the woman in Chicago infected someone who lives with her.

US did a good job at containing SARS so hopefully the same will occur with this virus.

As of 12:45am PST Canada still showing only to avoid non-essential travel.

AA pilots in the US are trying to get a court order to force the airline to suspend flights, the crews dont want to fly to China they typically spend 32 hours on layover before their return back to the US.
