    The advantage this country is it has a limited amount of international ports making screening of foreign arrivals easier. Fewer doors equals fewer screeners needed.

    Lay people properly trained to spot arrivals suspected to having the illness can direct them to professionals for more scrutiny.

    Let's hope this virus is not as harmful as represented and nobody gets really ill.

    Dominican airports on alert for coronavirus

    After the United States announced its first case of coronavirus, Dominican airports have scaled up to prevent the spread to the country of the respiratory virus. The symptoms are fever and cough. Good hygiene is said to be most effective at preventing catching the disease.

    Aracelis Castillo de la Cruz, director general of the Specialized Corps for Airport and Civil Aviation Security (CESAC), said that airport staff is alert to the arrival of citizens, mainly from Asia, who may arrive in the country infected with the coronavirus.

    "The World Health Organization has not yet taken any specific decisions, but we are implementing rather preventive measures so that people who arrive with high fever, or with possible symptoms be isolated and given special treatment," he said. The sickness starts as a cold, evolving into a pneumonia or bronchitis and does not respond to antibiotics.

    The virus would have originated in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in Hubei at the end of 2019, and has now spread to Chinese cities including Beijing and Shanghai, as well as the United States, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan.

    While there is no particular treatment for the coronavirus, recommended measures are similar to those for cold, such as rest and drinking a lot of fluid.

    How will the DR be able to defend against this virus ? Are they screening people arriving from China ? This virus has already killed sick and infected hundreds more.

    Seems a lot of deadly viruses start in China - too many people ?

    Am reading the virus originated cos of chinese eating bats.
