You guys are typing too fast for me to keep up! So I am a few pages behind [plus all of the irrelevant stuff that some continue posting such as extensively repetitive quotes, number reports and personal disagreements]. However, diligently weeding thru it all we can still find interesting stuff, such as this comment:
They banned ALL TRAVEL from Hubei province to the rest of China, but allowed international flights to continue leaving Wuhan/Hubei. That basically targeted the whole world in a very passive aggressive way.
That is a compelling statement, and a quick check for verification on Wiki brings up this:
At 2 am on 23 January 2020, authorities issued a notice informing residents of Wuhan that from 10 am, all public transport, including buses, railways, flights, and ferry services would be suspended. The Wuhan Airport, the Wuhan railway station, and the Wuhan Metro were all closed. The residents of Wuhan were also not allowed to leave the city without permission from the authorities. The notice caused an exodus from Wuhan. An estimated 300,000 people were reported to have left Wuhan by train alone before the 10 am lockdown. By the afternoon of 23 January, the authorities began shutting down some of the major highways leaving Wuhan.
So I am curious if the poster of the above statement in quotes, or anyone else, can provide a better source concerning the allegation that China allowed international flights from Wuhan to continue, since Wiki doesn't seem to be very specific.
