Containing the coronavirus

Containing the coronavirus

Wuhan, China is under the largest quarantine in history after the coronavirus goes global.
The virus has spread to 25 countries with more than 20,000 confirmed cases and nearly 500 deaths.

Canada is working to evacuate citizens from Wuhan to an airforce base in Trenton.

This week on Context, we speak with a Canadian teacher in Wuhan who is opting not to return to Canada. And, a Canadian disease specialist who contracted SARS in 2003 will separate fact from fiction about the deadly virus.
