My wife and kids are arriving from China on Tuesday, from Sichuan just 200 km from Hubei Province where Wuhan, and I'm taking them to the most crowed restaurant on Riverside I can find.

Can you take them to La Croisette?

My mate's ex works there, she's a right **** by all accounts. If you 'take care of her' I reckon he might give you a free dinner somewhere.

Thanks

Coronavirus: China bans inter-city buses from Beijing as lockdown intensifies
Shandong province and the capital, Tianjin and Xi’an have suspended inter-city and chartered buses from crossing their borders

Chinese authorities have stepped up their attempts to contain the spread of the coronavirus outbreak as one province and three cities – including Beijing – banned long-distance buses.

As the United States, France and Australia prepared to evacuate their citizens from Wuhan, the quarantined city at the outbreak’s epicentre, drastic measures were being put in place to prevent China’s population of 1.4 billion from moving around the country.

The eastern Shandong province, with a population of 100 million people, will suspend long-distance buses entering the province, state broadcaster CCTV reported, following the announcement of similar measures in the cities of Tianjin, Beijing and the historic Xi’an.

Inter-city buses in the province will only be allowed to leave if stations have temperature screening measures, CCTV said.

From 6pm (1000 GMT) on Sunday, Xi’an – home to the Terracotta Army – will suspend long-distance buses and tourist chartered buses entering the city of 10 million people, local officials said on the Twitter-like Weibo platform, following the announcement of similar measures in Tianjin and Beijing.

Inter-city taxis will be suspended, except those from the city’s airport, the statement said.

The royal government of Cambodia just sold out the safety of their citizens over what? 10k $? 100k $. It’s a disgrace.

Well, the screening will do nothing because "China coronavirus 'spreads before symptoms show" and "In humans, the incubation period - during which a person has the disease, but no symptoms yet - ranges from between one and 14 days, officials believe".
