I don’t think repatriation should be on the cards either.. quarantine them all, why take the risk?

@pgn 

Mmmm...different countries feel that masks do help, particularly when in cities already known to have the virus. Mixed reports though.

On the news tonight it has been reported that government officials in Wuhan are using drones to seek out people NOT wearing masks.

I think driving a bus in a bio suit would be almost impossible so yes, the bus drivers are definitely heroes. I hope they are getting heroic wages.

It's a particularly nasty blighter, whatever way it interferes with your lungs... 

 

Novel Coronavirus and Pneumonia

 

Astounded

 

Not clear if this is a secondary infection, but viral pneumonia is a bit hard to evict - antibiotics no use.
