Easy. They now added screening in addition to the earlier reporting. The medical team can standby and screen passengers for illness and fever and deny boarding. 100% foolproof?, no, but nothing is.

except there is no actual way to screen for conavirus at boarding. testing takes days to week.

 

and fever isn't even a sign if someone is infected. 

 

it's security theatre at best much like TSA screening and emptying water bottles

I know, but that is what is going to happen, like it happens at asian airports. By screening I mean looking for signs of any illness and then let the medical team decide wether to deny boarding or not. Fair, accurate? No.

There are now many countries reporting cases, and something like 14,000 cases worldwide. I’m all for blocking arrivals fromChina but....It’s going to be impossible to detect where all these other people were in the previous two weeks, and how many people all over the world may already have the virus and not know it.
