Washington Post: U.S. handling of American evacuees from Wuhan increased coronavirus risks, watchdog finds

Washington Post: U.S. handling of American evacuees from Wuhan increased coronavirus risks, watchdog finds. “As the first American evacuees from Wuhan, China, touched down at a California military base a year ago, fleeing the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, they were met by U.S. health officials with no virus prevention plan or infection-control training — and who had not even been told to wear masks, according to a federal investigation. Later, those officials were told to remove protective gear when meeting with the evacuees to avoid ‘bad optics,’ and days after those initial encounters, departed California aboard commercial airline flights to other destinations.”
