USA: San Francisco Airport Begins Screening Passengers for Coronavirus

San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has begun screening passengers travelling from the Chinese city of Wuhan for the deadly new coronavirus, according to a spokesperson who spoke from the airport on Tuesday.

“On Friday the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) announced plans to begin screening for three airports in the US, including SFO,” said SFO spokesperson Doug Yakel.

Yakel explained who was being screened saying that “it’s happening for all customers who are either, coming to SFO non-stop from Wuhan,” as well as “connecting passengers who’s travel originated in Wuhan.”

The CDC is also conducting checks on passengers arriving at Los Angeles International Airport and the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

An outbreak of a respiratory illness caused by a newly emerging coronavirus – also known as 2019-nCoV – was reported in the central Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019. Since then, six people have died, according to China’s National Health Commission.
