An article on some of the measures China took to control the virus. This is what China is admitting to. Some highlights-

In late February, as coronavirus infections mounted in Wuhan, China, local authorities went door-to-door for health checks – forcibly isolating every resident in makeshift hospitals and temporary quarantine shelters, even separating parents from young children who displayed symptoms of COVID-19, no matter how seemingly mild.
Caretakers at the city's ubiquitous large apartment buildings were pressed into service as ad hoc security guards, monitoring the temperatures of all residents, deciding who could come in, and implementing inspections of delivered food and medicines.
Outside, drones hovered above streets, yelling at people to get inside and scolding them for not wearing face masks, while elsewhere in China facial-recognition software, linked to a mandatory phone app that color-coded people based on their contagion risk, decided who could enter shopping malls, subways, cafes and other public spaces.
"Those with dogs had to play with them inside and teach them to use the bathroom in a certain spot," she said.
"It was not just families being isolated together in Wuhan, but individuals being isolated away from their friends and families,"
rules were established requiring residents to have a formal pass to get in and out of their apartment buildings and homes. At the outbreak's height in Wuhan, nobody was allowed in or out of the city and access to food stores was limited to once every few days.
welding doors to entire apartment buildings – with residents inside – shut to enforce quarantines.

China is ASSHOE! Being able to wage war on your own citizens has some benefits I suppose.

Can we send that cruise ship with a large outbreak to go on a port tour of China?

Looks like Tulsa Mayor Bynum, who I called a grandstander earlier in this thread, has written a NY Times opinion article. Titled “I am a red-state Mayor and I ordered my city to stay home”.

Yep that's the ultimate in grandstanding. I do see him as a potential democrat later. He's definitely NOT a small government Republican. Certainly a RINO for election purposes. Do I think and hope the measures he's taking in Tulsa work? Most certainly. My problem with him is that he's stated (hopefully) the very worst that could happen over and over again...Like peaking in more than a month from now in Tulsa and the possibility of having 20,000 hospitalized as his rational. This type of talk, while it "might" (sure hope it's not) be true...is his method for getting compliance IMHO. Fear tactics..with very little positive messaging coming out of his mouth. Most certainly writing an op ed in the NY times is so important for a Tulsa Mayor...especially if you are perhaps controlled by a big money Democrat who may have aspirations for you politically. Btw, next time he talks to George he's need to tell him that in order to not be inconsistent in his life saving message that he needs to shut down all abortion facilities unilaterally forever within the city...then see how that goes over.

Why on Earth would anybody have gotten on the cruise in the first place. Unless it was longer than 2 weeks, then the people knew sh!t was hitting the fan before they boarded and that their would be a good chance of being quarantined there.
I believe this ship started in Argentina...THREE weeks ago. This was prior to the known escalation of the virus and they likely thought they could get home without too many problems because at that time entire USA had very few cases. Since then they have been denied to several South American ports. You can't be like that...people made choices prior to this escalation... have some understanding. We need good solutions for all people including those stuck on the ship. I think the USA should accept our citizens from that ship...follow the guidelines taken by Japan when they did this and get on with it. The other passengers should be taken to their home countries as well or to the point of the ship register (which is likely the Bahamas and not able to accommodate them). National Guard needs to help with our efforts on our citizens.

Agreed, & the apparent disconnect between DeSantis allowing spring break to go on, but keeping this ship from docking are a little confusing to me.

This has been an on-going situation and it's confusing to our leaders just as it is us...they have received conflicting information. We just need to deal with it now and make sound decisions, especially for our citizens...it is NOT their fault that they traveled prior to a few weeks ago when travel restrictions were enacted. Bottom line, even if it is, we have a responsibility to our own citizens. We got the people in Europe back, not sure why we can't take these folks...of course I don't live in Florida so it's easier for me to say that. We should be setting up quarantining facilities at the ports of entry now.
