Yes. I flew out from Bangkok just as it hit, got stopped in a body scanner for high temperature. Thank God I passed additional tests but wow I feel sorry for anyone else that were kept in those areas. Antibqxt and wipe down seats. Flights and airports are bacteria bombs. In Asia it's totally fine to also use a mouth cover. Usually worn if you yourself is sick but hey they think it spreads through spit. Better be safe and look silly than sick and look like you are dying.

@S1 yep, but they had also separate area they moved people into. Note this was a day after coverage in Wuhan. Probably everyone reading on them or looking for people appearing to be in discomfort were taken aside for additional screening / testing. I do think temperature screening is a good thing 🙏🏻

Nope. I met the guy who is the director for defending against all biological threats for the US once and he told me how they stopped Ebola. They were in a lot worse position when they started to take action against that and they handled the situation very well.
