Cainvest, the couple may have sparked an outbreak, that isn't known yet. The one guy who flew from a business meeting in Singapore to France has now resulted in ELEVEN cases in France, the UK and Majorca, Spain. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/feb/09/fourth-person-in-uk-tests-positive-for-coronavirusPossibly, depends where ...
Not sure what your point is here? I can guess it's to backup an alarmist stance but better you expand on it so I fully understand.
Also, did this couple spark an out break of the virus? How many in their hotel are now sick?
You seem to want to say that if one such incident happens that's no reason to think it will happen again somewhere else. Really? Each time one person is infected and that person travels to somewhere else, the risk of infection spreading exists obviously.
I really don't care to a degree (I don't wish anyone to get sick), if someone chooses to risk getting an infection. But I DO care if they then show up here and transmit it to me. WHERE in assessing the risks to YOU, do you place the risk to MY health? The guy who has now infected 11 people has infected ELEVEN people who are now at risk of DYING. If you are only risking something happening to you, that's your choice but when you increase the risk to ME, that should not be your choice to make.
How many people who are travelling do you think self-quarantine when they return home before venturing into say a supermarket, because they MIGHT have the virus and do not want to risk passing it on to others? The risk taken is not just a risk to that individual.
Maybe that will help you understand the point. The point is that travel increases the risk for EVERYONE, not just the individual who travels.
