    The spread of the coronavirus in China was aided by a government crackdown on news about the virus. Government officials showed up at the home of the doctor who initially tried to spread word about the virus in a chat room. They forced him to sign a document warning him about his illegal behavior. Something similar may be happening in Iran. Officially, there are 6,566 cases of the virus in Iran. However, the Atlantic published a piece today suggesting the actual number could be far higher.Of course the whole problem is that Iran, motivated by domestic and international political...

In some cases, local authorities have permitted disembarkation but subjected passengers to local quarantine procedures. While the U.S. government has evacuated some cruise ship passengers in recent weeks, repatriation flights should not be relied upon as an option for U.S. citizens...

Instead, they simply traveled in China within the past few weeks and have since been flagged by health officials at one of the 11 airports nationwide through which all U.S....
