KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad says the government has no plans to stop Chinese tourists from coming into the country for now in light of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China.

As for now, the government would only screen passengers and tourists arriving in the country, he said.

"No stopping them. We will check them (tourists), by checking (them) it would enable us to detect (any signs of the virus) at an early stage, ” he told a press conference after attending the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (KLSCAH) Chinese New Year celebration here Saturday (Jan 25).

Earlier Saturday, Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad confirmed three of the eight Chinese nationals placed under quarantine in Johor Bahru have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, also known as the Wuhan coronavirus.

The three who are now under isolation at Hospital Sungai Buloh, are close relatives of the 66-year-old male Chinese national from Wuhan, who arrived in Singapore on Jan 20 and was confirmed on Jan 23 as Singapore's first case of an individual who was tested positive for the virus.

The three who are now under isolation at Hospital Sungai Buloh, are close relatives of the 66-year-old male Chinese national from Wuhan, who arrived in Singapore on Jan 20 and was confirmed on Jan 23 as Singapore's first case of an individual who was tested positive for the virus.

The three positive cases in Malaysia comprise the Singapore patient's wife, 65, and two male grandchildren of the couple.

On the same note, when asked if the government would review the 15-day visa exemption for tourists from China if the outbreak worsens, Dr Mahathir said the government would not do so at this moment.

"At the moment not yet but we are examining all tourists coming here especially from China, ” he said.

Dr Mahathir said Malaysians must remain vigilant in maintaining hygiene and to wear mask in a crowded areas.

He said it was difficult for a government to prevent the spread of certain outbreaks, especially in today's world where people and goods can easily move from one country to another.

"So containing an infectious disease is more complicated than before, ” he said. - Bernama

DickyMe Flu virus? Aaaaarrhhh.."As people become more educated, they become more panicky. It is just another lame excuse to keep the rumour mill active in order for vested parties to position themselves. All about business.

Sars la, Ebola la, AIDS la. macam-macam la la. Ini semua kerja propaganda untuk jual ubat. UBAT OH UBAT.

supersaiyan3 Just my guesses,

1. Seems like the virus tends to spread southward. My guess is human instinct makes them go south to warmer places.

2. Lucky for Malaysia and Singapore, our climate hopefully can make the virus weak.

3. So far no cure, but I wonder if at the very least the Chinese have isolated the virus two years back (it was announced at CCTV news), they should have the vaccine by now. (Some said Xi had the shot, that's why he is not afraid to dance with people after the outbreak, he is far away from the epicentre though).
