Qantas to suspend services to mainland China from February 9Qantas will suspend its services to mainland China from next Sunday due to entry restrictions imposed by other countries as a result of the coronavirus. If China is isolated from the rest of the world...i guess they can just each other. they eat anything they can torture that has a pulse...right? End of coronavirus = problemsolved its a little late already why wait any longer at all? to give people enough time to try enter before the flights stop? the government just needs to implement a travel ban it should not be left up to these companies to decide. So other countries such as US and Singapore have already stopped flights but Qantas think another week of virus importation is fine. Anyone awake in Canberra?
