      Money is not everything? People’s health comes first, peoples lives are on the line ? This is a serious issue? If these people are let loose the disease would spread and take so many lives? So I believe to prevent the spreading is more important than compensation?

    When we are tweedling our thumbs waiting for the puff adder to enter the house and bite someone with deadly consequences before we close the door. You close the door before the viper gets in when you have seen that it is likely a hitch hiker on on one of the persons coming in. I bet the reason the gates are still open is so that the rich and powerful and their kids can still go back and forth despite….

    What a country. DO we even have a single respirator anywhere?

    More should be done to prevent this virus from spreading. An article shouldn’t just be written as this might not get to every passenger that was on that plane. I’m sure the airport has personal deetails of the passengers and should make use of it to mandatorily monitor and observe them to be sure they isolate themselves for 14 days.If measures aren’t put in place now,that we have just 3 registered persons that are infected then this virus wil spread wildly.
