Borders close, foreigners leave

Meanwhile, Russian state media reported Thursday that Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin had signed an order to close Russia's border with China in the Far East in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus.
"An order has been signed today, it is in the works. Today we will inform everyone accordingly about the relevant measures to close the border in the Far Eastern region and other measures that have been taken by the government," Mishustin said, RIA reports.

CHinese restaurants will see a drop in business...some CHinese in the US are feeling the backlash, even though they have nothing to do with this...

Very sad but public fear is escalating this problem. 
I see a lot of Chinese wearing masks, it doesn’t help with the optics.

An American who flew out of China on a chartered flight tried to leave a Southern California military base where authorities have been monitoring nearly 200 people for coronavirus symptoms, health officials said.

The person, who was not identified, has been ordered to stay in quarantine at the March Air Reserve Base near Riverside, California, until the "entire incubation period or until otherwise cleared," Riverside County Public Health said in a statement Thursday. The incubation period will be 14 days.
"This action was taken as a result of the unknown risk to the public should someone leave MARB early without undergoing a full health evaluation," the agency said.
Nearly 200 Americans arrived Wednesday at the military base from Wuhan, the epicenter of the deadly coronavirus outbreak in China, and were asked to stay for at least three days so they can be monitored for coronavirus symptoms.
 
 
US health officials had said they will not issue a blanket quarantine for the evacuees.
While none of the 195 passengers showed signs of sickness, some agreed to stay at the base voluntarily, said Dr. Chris Braden of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC.
"They wanted to protect their family. They wanted to protect others," he said.

In Jaipur I noticed the women at the bus stop covered their faces like Arabs, but they were Hindu. It was to do with dust in the dry season.
