Wonders shall never end!

The Wall Street Journal reports that China is placing travel restrictions on foreigners because they believe that foreigners will bring new infections of the coronavirus to China.

Firstly, who wants to travel to China?

Are foreigners not supposed to be the ones afraid of going to China?

China Tightens Screening of Travelers, Fearing Reinfection From Abroad

As spread of the epidemic eases within China, some cities step up scrutiny of travelers arriving from abroad

HONG KONG—As the coronavirus epidemic takes hold in more countries around the world, China is trying to stop the disease from being repatriated by travelers arriving from abroad.

A number of Chinese municipal governments are imposing stricter health screenings on people entering China and, in some cases, even quarantine measures on those arriving from coronavirus-afflicted countries. These controls come after Beijing waged a concerted campaign urging other governments not to impose restrictions on travel to and from China.

It seems like fake news. I've Googled for the story but I couldn't find any news remotely resembling what the OP posted aside from the news of three WSJ reporters who were asked to leave China because of an article they wrote which the Chinese government found to be 'insensitive'. Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if the story turns out true though. What do I know?

Interesting... China the hotbed of coronavirus is just trying to save face. This is like Sierraleone during the Ebola crisis banning foreigners from entering their country.

The only country China should ban are travellers from Iran. Iran has not been responsible in delealing with this crisis.

There have been more new cases of Coronavirus outside of China than in.

They are simply following the trend and safeguarding their future.

They are doing the right thing. You don't want Travellers to reinfect your people.

It's like when your toothbrush is infected and you take antibiotics but you still brush with the toothbrush every morning. You will be reinfecting
yourself each time which is even more dangerous because bacterias evolve to become resistant to medication.

Most countries probably have the coronavirus and they don't have sufficient kits or even any kits to test for it. So China also has to be afraid of either getting reinfected or having newly infected people.
