To illustrate the scope of the problem consider the report I heard on CBS XMAS evening news: the on-site reporter in Los Angeles said she counted 30 daily direct flights from UK to LAX. Also, LA has other airports such as Burbank's.

It is very likely in 10-50 different countries right now. The lower estimate is quite firm, the upper rather speculative.

I heard Spain earlier today. So, at least US, UK, ES, DK, AU, NL, FR to my knowledge. I hear rumours of SG too but can't confirm.

I did a search for flights from the small airports around LAX for trips to LHR. None had non-stops available. SFO and Las Vegas would. I did not check San Diego.

Add JP, SE and CH to that list.

Ten countries now appear certain.

If this is about the new variant, it has been found in Canada, so I read earlier.

"Since it's been found since September, there's no reason why people coming since September haven't been able to bring that new strain to Canada."

The two cases announced today have no travel history, high-risk contacts or known exposure.

KR reported today. If it is there, a country with among the most effective responses anywhere, you can be certain that it is widespread.

Now so many that I am going to stop keeping count.

China sentences lawyer who reported on outbreak to 4 years
Quote:
BEIJING (AP) β€” A Chinese court on Monday sentenced a former lawyer who reported on the early stage of the coronavirus outbreak to four years in prison on charges of "picking fights and provoking trouble," one of her lawyers said.

The Pudong New Area People's Court in the financial hub of Shanghai gave the sentence to Zhang Zhan following accusations she spread false information, gave interviews to foreign media, disrupted public order and "maliciously manipulated" the outbreak.
<snip>
She was arrested in May amid tough nationwide measures aimed at curbing the outbreak and heavy censorship to deflect criticism of the government's initial response. Zhang reportedly went on a prolonged hunger strike while in detention, prompting authorities to forcibly feed her, and is said to be in poor health.

I suppose she should consider herself fortunate not to be stood up against a wall and shot. The backlash from the world-at-large would have been rather remarkable.
