China knew about the virus on December 8th and sat on it until January 20th. Also, millions left Wuhan during that time frame to be with relatives throughout the world for Chinese New Year.
The degree of blatant disregard for human life by the Chinese government is almost beyond comprehension. What they did to their own people as well as to the peoples of other nations must be prosecuted to the fullest extent that we can muster.

Discharged patients to spend 14 days in designated centres after cases in which people who had recovered still carried the virus and were able to infect others.
Zhao Jianping, a doctor heading a team working in Hubei, said on Thursday that there had been cases in which patients tested positive after they had seemingly recovered.
“This is dangerous,” Zhao was quoted as saying by Southern People Weekly magazine. “Where do you put those patients? You cannot send them home, because they might infect others, but you cannot put them in hospital because resources are stretched.”
“It may be that there are still viruses or viral gene fragments in the discharged patients,” Cai Weiping, head of the infectious diseases department at Guangzhou No 8 Hospital, was quoted as saying. “It is not yet certain whether they are infectious. This is a new pathogen, and we don’t yet have a perfect process to understand it.”
