United Airlines cancels flights to and from China

United Airlines cancels flights to and from China
8 Comments

United Airlines canceled two dozen U.S. flights to and from China, the carrier announced Tuesday, as American health authorities stepped up efforts to battle the fast-spreading coronavirus.

The 24 round trips involved routes originating in San Francisco, Newark, Dulles and Chicago's O'Hare International airports with destinations in Beijing and Shanghai.

The Chicago-based airline didn't specifically cite the virus but said a sudden drop in travel to China forced the cancellations.

"Due to a significant decline in demand for travel to China, we are suspending some flights between our hub cities and Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai beginning Feb. 1 through Feb. 8," according to a company statement.

"We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and will adjust our schedule as needed."

Earlier Tuesday, the Department of Health and Human Services announced it would increase the number of American ports of entry with screening for the coronavirus from five to 20.

    Whatdoesitmean.com Reports: Critical to note for the Human Holobiont about the measles morbillivirus, though, this report concludes, is its being a single-stranded, negative-sense, enveloped, non-segmented RNA virus—as compared to coronaviruses that are a positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus—which makes both of them members of the RNA Virus family—the very high mutations rate of which has proven to be a difficult problem in even classifying them—thus making it feasible that RNA strands of measles and coronaviruses have in the past, or have even now, combined themselves into a novel new disease such as 2019-nCoV is—an RNA viral disease now coming under intense global scientific examination from both the Medical Philosophy and Religious Psychopathology communities because of the “religious symptoms” being displayed in infected Chinese children—but has Ministry doctor-scientists not discounting the possibility that a genuine Human Holobiont virus initiated “religious event” is now occurring—the architect of which is a Christian deity whose ancient prophets warned “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God…”—and if true, shines a new light on this past year’s hysteria in America to vaccinate all children against the measles virus—as one can rightly assume their socialist elites would be horrified if these children joined their Chinese counterparts and began kneeling down and crying out “Jesus Is Our Lord”, too.

    Just like that, more than 1,000 people on three flights from China walked into Canada without medical screening. If the coronavirus happens to be incubating in any one of those passengers who arrived at Pearson International Airport’s Terminal 3 on Monday, they are now mingling with Canadian residents.

      I looked at that web site and saw scheduled international flights, that were not canceled, to ANCHORAGE, ALASKA and Tokyo, Japan, as well as local flights to Beijing, Shanghai, et cetera.

    It has been said that there are people being evacuated out of Wuhan, China and throughout that are being returned to their country of origin. If that is the case, I would like to think that there are protocols in place to receive these individuals once they arrive at their final destination. Should this prove to be accurate, have the governments receiving these passengers setup decontamination check points? How thorough are their efforts considering the incubation period is anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks? Do they plan to put these people up in hotels, hospitals,... and monitor them until it has been determined they're free and clear and not in danger of infecting others? Just Asking.

    There are some that are saying much of what is being reported is a ridiculous exaggeration of the facts. The fact is that this situation is being used to create fear and to condition the minds of people all over the world in a big push for vaccine usage.

    The government has to show that they did at least something to stem the tide of the viral outbreak even if it is not completely effective. Governments tend to be reactionary in a crisis. Up until the time it is critical (usually too late) they will rely on hope. Right now, they "hope" this will not be a problem. When it becomes a problem, then they will react to the inevitable outcome of their previous poor decision. You can bet they are planning secretly behind the scenes for when they will have to react to the crisis, if it becomes one.

    Doesnt the DHS realize that screenings only detect people with fever and not the people that have no symptoms that are infected?

      I believe that history will look back and see that dhs made the problem worse
