No quarantine? JT ran a "poll article" the other day asking the question if readers thought the virus would be brought back to Japan by a tourist/traveler, the odds just went up that it will happen sooner than later..

Put them in quarintene for two weeks. Check their blood for the virus! Don't just let them come back... Are they crazy?!?

Smart move.Bring them back before they contract the virus... hopefully.

They were saying on the news last night that staff were being evacuated to other countries in Africa. I remember Ghana being mentioned. No mention of anyone coming straight back to Japan.

Hope JAL/ANA/LCC will arrange direct flight to Japan.

They should be on a private plane coming back to Japan and immediately placed in quarantine. Wonder if the local airports are monitoring those passengers who have come from that part of the world? Sure hope so!

Why? In another (safe) country in Africa, they can continue to do their job. Back in Japan, they'd be sitting around twiddling their thumbs and doing nothing to earn their tax-funded salaries.

Believe me if they had the virus you would know, you hardly need screening because symptoms occur rapidly (within hours) upon infection including bleeding from orifices, vomiting Diarrhea etc.

It would be a very wise precaution to place them in Quarantine when landed and have only them on the plane.
