Canadian train quarantine: System worked well, except that person who died was 43, not 86, not mid-60s
Posted: May 11th, 2008 - 8:22pm by Doug PowellThe train finally arrived in Toronto, some passengers were flaunting free booze as they disembarked while others complained there was no free breakfast (is that a good combination for people stuck on a train an additional 11 hours?), and health-types have proclaimed the great train quarantine of 2008 a success in public health emergency preparedness.
Except for some errant communications bout the female who died.
She was initially identified Friday as in her 60s, by Saturday she was 86, and today, authorities said she was a 43-year-old from South Africa.
