Coronavirus started from Wuhan, China. 
Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds that include diarrhea in cows and pigs, and upper respiratory disease in chickens. In humans, the virus causes respiratory infections, which are often mild, but are potentially lethal. There are no vaccines or antiviral drugs that are approved for prevention or treatment. 

As of now, thousand of people are being infected worldwide and 41 people from China have died. This petition is for the safety of the Filipinos.  On January 24, travelers from Guangzhou, China arrived in the Philippines wearing masks. This news gained negative feedbacks from the Filipinos.

 

”Stop making Philippines an evacuation center”,” Its time to be selfish, stop the hospitality for awhile, and prioritize the Filipinos”  and many more. Philippines has a low health care system and if this virus spreads, it could really affect the whole Philippines. PRIORITIZE THE HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF THE FILIPINOS. If the Filipinos get sick, do the Philippines have enough doctors and facilities to aid the sick people? If China, a very innovative country, have a hard time containing the virus, how can Philippines, a third world country, have a chance to survive? 

Ban Chinese or any travelers from China as a precautionary measure. This is written by a child who concerned for the well-being of my fellow citizens. As a Filipino, I know we wouldn’t stand a chance and I deeply care for my family.
