  • Diamond Princess evacuees arrive for quarantine in Canada

The latest Canadians to arrive at 8 Wing Trenton will not be staying with more than 400 other Canadians who are under quarantine after they were flown from Wuhan, China, the epicentre of the virus which has infected five people in British Columbia and three in Ontario.

And Canadian authorities are looking closely at their experience on the Diamond Princess cruise ship as the country prepares for an upcoming tourist season with concerns about the novel coronavirus, called COVID-19, still very much in the air.

In online posts, the evacuees said medics in protective gear served them breakfast on the plane - while checking each passenger's temperature for signs of fever. To date, we have been able to detect cases within Canada, treat them appropriately and limit the spread of the virus.

The Canadian Red Cross has already made sure they have care packages, including toiletries, which she said was a "blessed relief".

"I have assessed additional individuals in quarantine at CFB Trenton pursuant to an Emergency Order under the Quarantine Act and determined that they do not pose a risk of significant harm to public health", she said in a press release dated February 15.

Those who were allowed to return landed at Canadian Forces Base Trenton at 2 a.m.

On Friday morning, a Radio-Canada/CBC News crew captured video of the buses arriving at the Nav Centre and being taken through fencing setup to establish the quarantine area.

It's not yet clear why only 129 Canadians and family members boarded the return flight.

All repatriated passengers on the chartered flight had tested negative for COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus, while the Canadians who contracted the illness did not board the flight, CBC News said.

The Standard-Freeholder asked Health Canada media representatives if a site tour could be held for media to show the quarantine setup before the arrival of passengers, but was told this would not be possible.

"They pose no health risk to Canadians", Tam said, reinforcing that those released from quarantine have gone through a stressful time and deserve privacy as they get back to their lives.

Health Minister Patty Hajdu says the government is helping all the evacuees with their travel plans, but all will be expected to make their own ways home from Ontario.
