Just read that the Corona Virus is detected by an RNA test from mouth or blood samples.

Am wondering whether *some* of the travelling Chinese infected with are managing to arrive in the U.S. under-the-radar by circumventing the major U.S. airports' CDC-screenings (RNA test or not) ?
E.g., by flying from the PRC mainland to Mexico City and hence to smaller U.S. airports having minimal or NO screenings at all; see bit.ly/3922dmm

I assume a RNA test for everyone coming from China is way to expensive.
About 120 folks were evacuated from Wuhan yesterday by the german airforce to Germany, all were without symptoms and inspected by doctors who were on ghe flight. Two tested positive in the hospital after they arrived in Germany.
The symptomless incubation time is a problem.
