"Be Alert"

how? there's no reason to panic IMHO. the man has been in quarantine ever since he stepped off the plane. and other passengers didn't complain of flu symptoms, either.

..and he is Emirati and not Canadian as the news articles seem to imply without explicitly stating so. Sounds deceptive to me. What's the big deal? A virus is not going to discriminate based on your citizenship or ethnic background.
