By blocking travel from Wuhan to the rest of China but kept airports open for international travel expecting infection to spread while claiming no human to human transmission.
NF, just look at flights to Europe during January with a list of destinations including Italy and France. The USA and Canada got their share too.
ABC news: "he data shows that 3,200 flights flew from China to the U.S., including more than 1,000 flights that went to Los Angeles and nearly 500 each landed in San Francisco and New York – all three among the eventual hot spots of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S. More than 100 flights from China arrived in six other American cities: Chicago, Seattle, Detroit, Dallas, Washington, D.C., and Newark, N.J."
AP: " In the weeks before President Donald Trump spoke from the Oval Office this week to announce restrictions on travelers from more than two dozen countries in Europe, thousands of people from the region already had stepped off planes at U.S. airports, and an untold number of them may have carried the coronavirus.
The same can be said of flights from China in the weeks before the U.S. clamped down on those. Thousands who visited the country where the illness began had entered the United States without any kind of health review."
Though you can say that the airport operations were operating under the WHO advisory at the time https://www.who.int/news-room/articles- ... s-in-china
