If you look at what's happening in Wuhan now, the government authorities in China spent a number of weeks pressuring the virus, and you saw the numbers have dropped away. Now they have engaged in door-to-door surveillance and they are going around doing active surveillance. This is a very good public health practice.

Michael Ryan, executive director of the WHO Health Emergencies Programme


We did appreciate the speed with which the new coronavirus was identified by Chinese investigators and the unprecedented containment effort which is being conducted.

Franco Servadei, president of the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies


It's pretty much unprecedented. No one has attempted something like this in history to my knowledge. In many countries it would be impossible to even try.

Arthur Reingold, epidemiologist at the University of California, Berkeley


While expensive, it's more than worth it. It prevents spread of serious illnesses. And it's far less costly than having to hospitalize many patients who could contract the coronavirus infection.

Lawrence Gostin, expert in public health law and professor at Georgetown University

Well that would never be a problem for China since it's an established "fact" that there aren't any gay people in the middle kingdom.
