Coronavirus continues to infect thousands of people in China and has been found in multiple other countries including the u.s. in an effort to control its spread the Chinese government has instituted a massive travel ban in Wuhan and the surrounding

Hubei province this quarantine will impact over 50 million people according to the New York Times it's the largest travel ban in history even though this may sound extreme experts worried that it won't be enough

To stop the disease from spreading quarantines are intended to stop the spread of disease by keeping those who may be infected away from those who haven't been exposed they differ from isolation which refers to the practice

Of restricting the movements of those who are already showing symptoms quarantine can refer to stopping the movements of an individual or to limiting a large group as with the current ban in China in the event of an

Outbreak abroad the u.s. often focuses on stopping citizens who have traveled to infected countries the problems arise with the execution in the case of Lu Han the travel ban is confining the healthy along with the ill this increases the

Risk of exposure for uninfected residents of Wu hen furthermore the mayor of Wu hen estimated that five million citizens left the city before the ban was put in place significantly limiting the effectiveness of the ban

Large Geographic bans are also difficult to enforce a 2014 attempt to combat Ebola virus by quarantine in the West Point slum in the capital of Liberia resulted in violent outbreaks in this example some residents attempted escape

Or bribed their way out in Bou Han public transportation has been stopped and flights have been cancelled but residents would still be able to leave on foot in the case of individual quarantines it can be

Difficult to assess a patient's exposure to germs since the goal is to select people who have been exposed to the virus but aren't yet showing symptoms it's not enough to screen for a fever simply stopping everyone who may have

Been to an infected area could result in detaining people who haven't had any exposure to the illness a practice that breeds discontent and mistrust of the government this mistrust can ultimately lead to infected citizens becoming less

Likely to report their illnesses through the proper channels as experts told The Washington Post history proves that quarantines aren't going to stop an outbreak from occurring they might delay its spread but they're difficult to

Enforce and often by the time they're in place the infection has already spread too far for more videos like this one click subscribe now to enable notifications don't forget to click that Bell
