Massachusetts woman facing charges in China of spreading coronavirus

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/massachusetts-woman-faces-criminal-charges-of-spreading-coronavirus/ar-BB11qpmN?ocid=spartanntp

Li Mou, 37, a resident of Mass, was unable to receive testing for Coronavirus in the Boston area, so she came up with an alternate solution: self-administered fever-suppressing medications, then flew first to Los Angeles and from there to Beijing. Flight attendants on the plane asked her about her symptoms, which she denied. She entered China, received a coronavirus test, and was positive.

She is currently in a Beijing hospital receiving treatment. She is also being investigated for Obstructing the Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Diseases, a Chinese crime which is punishable by prison time. This seems to have two tiers: the lower one, which she's being investigated for because she went immediately for testing upon reaching Beijing, carries a three-year sentence. If she had not done that, she could be charged with the upper tier, which carries a seven-year maximum sentence.

1. The three years seems fair to me.

Endangered people on the plane and people in China.
