LONDON When I got off my flight from Beijing to London nearly two weeks ago, I knew what I had to do: go straight into self-quarantine.
I live in China, where a dramatic lockdown since late January has made it clear that all residents, even those well beyond the epicenters outbreak in Wuhan, were in the middle of a global health crisis. The boarding process in Beijing was the final reminder: two mandatory temperature checks and an electronic health statement for which I had to provide an email address and two contact phone numbers.
But as the plane approached London, a sense of unreality set in. The airline distributed a cheaply printed sheet that only advised us to call the usual National Health Service hotline if we felt ill. On arrival, there was no temperature check and no health statement meaning that British officials would have had no easy way to track us if one of us came down with Covid-19.

BS Chinese propaganda.
You forgot the BARF parenthetic.
Lol try again, NYT.
Yep. The damned godless commie scum likely built this virus.
I notice that he came running back to the West when the ChiComs were throwing people in boxes and welding shut quarantine centers.
No no - happy glorious fun time quarantine centers that the Chinese government built just for the sick... which collapsed...
Worse. It’s NY Times propaganda.
“Ian Johnson, lying sack of Media Mitt.”
Brave Sir Ian- "When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely tucked his tail and fled."
Yeah they let their people fly the hell All over the planet for almost a month before they told anybody yeah they really saved us.
Johnson is a chicom ass nuzzler. He knows they delayed informing other countries for months whilst taking advantage of chinese spreading the virus beyond china’s borders. So go stuff yourself Johnson. You commie apologist ratbag
Q for the NYT: Then why did the ChiComs refuse to let the CDC and NIH in, hmmm?
On arrival, there was no temperature check and no health statement...
Maybe a one way ticket home would be more appropriate. Or a bullet.
It drives them insane.
Is this guy the Walter Duranty of our time? How does he ignore the 6 weeks or so while Chinas leadership tried to hide this thing from the world, from roughly early Dec thru mid-late Jan? How does he ignore the possibility the Chinese military might have been the source for all this, via their biowarfare center in Wuhan?
To Hell with this guy.
Because democrats were trying to impeach our nations President when he could have been focused on this issue.
May the left burn in the fires of their own creation.
I second the motion. And they still want open borders.
My thinking is that there better be lots of bodies stacked up dying from this thing to justify all the hysteria. Otherwise we need to extract lots of payback to the people - and we know who they are - who ginned up this mob of panic.
Is this doofus going to tell us that the Chinese actually CAN build a fully-equipped hospital in 11 minutes ... or whatever that silly sh!t was going around a few weeks ago?
