Inlight of the vast spread of Coronavirus throughout China and as thousands enter the UK from China mainland on daily basis , it is crucial for the government to take necessary steps to help prevent the vast spread of this dangerous and the highly infectious virus in the UK . It has been proved it poses a very serious threat to huge number of people considered high risk including; cancer patients, people with impaired immune system or with underlying health conditions and the elderly .Although the Chinese government has been working hard, it has been unable to contain the speed of transmission As a percentage, the mortality rate is not high, however due to the ease of transmission and high number of infections , This  imminent threat for the weaker and older cannot be ignored. An average of 26,750 people travel from China to UK every month, and reported  that 75% of infected travellers are in incubation period, where undetectable on airport checks. Baed on infection rate figures in non-quarantine cities in China and average calculations , it is  likley for an approximate, 29 infected people to enter the UK just in a month, as each case will be contaminatng at least three to four, we face a very big reality of a vast spread in the UK if a  temporary stop of all passanger travel from China direct or indirect , unless for cases where government quarantine is applied  ,until there is more research and  the matter is under control. This request has been made in consideration of the economic impact as well as its effect on diplomatic relations , however as of the urgency of the matter and as of the  government's first responsibility to safe guard the lives of all its citizens, we believe implementing such a decision crucial as has been placed in 50 countries around the world so far.
