Most bans dont affect permanent residents or nationals of the country enacting the ban, It's also only banning mainlain China so anyone with dual passports and some money can get to Hong Kong or Thailand and fly out without issue





Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

All comment's I make are my own personal opinion and do not in any way, shape or form reflect the views of current or former employers unless specifically stated

Batman: Entry ban but flights still coming. That's going to cause some chaos I imagine?

 

I guess. There have been scheduled flight cancellations, and scheduled flights not showing as cancelled yet - but they haven't departed China (ie a Southern China Airlines flight 617 from Guangzhou to Chch, scheduled to leave 4 1/2 hours ago - hasn't departed).

 

An Air NZ 777 is supposed to be doing an evacuation flight to Wuhan - leaving this evening.  It's picking up some Aussies as well as NZ evacuees.  Once here, the Aussies will be flown to Xmas Island for quarantine, the NZers to Whangaparaoa.

 

The Aussie quarantine flight was on a 747.  According to what I read, they kept crew mainly confined to the upper deck / passengers below.  Crew on these flights are volunteers - good on them.

New confirmed cases and deaths jumped again in Hubei region.  Someone is updating Wikipedia with presumably accurate (from Hubei regional government site) but incorrectly referenced interim figures - ie before the Chinese National Health Commission daily report is released.  So those figures are only from updated from Hubei, the whole of China figure isn't out yet.

 

So the emergency measures were implemented in Wuhan on 23, and Hubei province on 24 Jan (11 days ago), but the new case rate is still climbing.

 

Those classified as "undergoing medical observation" is >58,000 in Hubei province - it's only about 1/3 of the total for all of China.

Strangely enough, FR24 actually does have the flight departure and destination points listed as Wuhan. Weird.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I've been following this website which someone linked in another thread... strangely, every day the last day of the graph looks like the slope of the graph is reducing, yet the following day that same time segment looks to be steeper than its predecessor.

Re the flight
The callsign changed for the leg from HK. They are not standard route ids but relocation/charter callsigns (no defined to/from)

So fr24 switches to 'nearest airport I took off or landed at' mode. Since the flight in had the same number in, it's associated to it and got it wrong.

Trying to be smart, causes epic fails. Same here with the doctor flights using the same id or reg. Totally wrong to/froms

They're plotting incomplete data (daily tally) before the full data is in -  if you click on the chart to expand it there's a note at the top saying that each point is updated as new cases are identified.

Someone posted this on Reddit (a hotbed of CT) but AFAICT, it's probably genuine:
