To really judge, we'd have to know how many people they transported who didn't test positive on arrival in China. Because nobody promised that the tests were perfect in stopping accidental transport...

Right, but you specifically said that 4m people had died from infectious diseases and asked why people weren't being screened for them on planes. I'm curious to know what those diseases were,...

That's crazy - 150k of unused capacity. Here in the UAE, if you get a cold, you get tested, just to be sure. People in the UK must still be getting colds, but they're not bothering to get a (free)...
