Detroit Metropolitan Airport selected to accept flights from China

Detroit Metropolitan Airport selected to accept flights from China”

This became the first confirmed death outside of China, according to the BBC.

The "vast majority" of flights coming from China already arrive at those airports, Cuccinelli said.

Major global airlines including Air Canada, British Airways, Delta, Lufthansa and Qatar also have suspended all flights to mainland China amid the outbreak.

Nearly 12,000 cases have been confirmed worldwide, with more than 11,800 of those in China.

Hong Kong's Cathay Pacific (0293.HK) plans to cut around 30% of its capacity over the next two months, including around 90% of its flights to mainland China, as it grapples with the epidemic, its CEO said on Tuesday. United Airlines is scheduled to continue China flights through Wednesday before halting flights through March 27.

American's move left United Airlines as the only USA carrier still flying to Hong Kong.

Its pilots' union had taken issue with Hong Kong's proximity to China and potentially to the virus.

Disney said Tuesday that attendance and hotel stays in Hong Kong were down because of "recent events". Hong Kong geographically is a landmass that's part of China.

The union this week sued the company to immediately halt its U.S. As of Saturday, the lawsuit is still pending a judge's decision, according to Tajer.

The Chinese airline said it notified 10 US passenger and cargo airlines and the Federal Aviation Administration of its plans.

A spokeswoman for a group representing US airlines said Sunday "carriers will continue to comply with all government rules and regulations".

Princeton University spokesman Michael Hotchkiss said about 100 students - undergraduates and graduates - were self-quarantined Sunday, before health assessments cleared them as "low risk" and they were able to resume campus interactions.

US citizens and permanent residents are still allowed to enter. And the Cruise Lines International Association, whose members include Carnival Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, and Royal Caribbean International, said in a statement that its members "have suspended crew movements from mainland China and will deny boarding to any individual, whether guest or crew, who has traveled from or through mainland China within the previous 14 days".

At a press briefing on Monday, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC's National Center for Respiratory Diseases, said that passengers who have been in the Hubei province in the previous two weeks will undergo an additional health assessment.
