It was always there... it not even came from China.. in France for example they just found out that case zero there was infected beginning of December 2019 already, interesting that this guy had NO travel history abroad.

It is a good idea to check people returning from overseas, but I'm pretty sure that if you tested people who have not been out of Thailand you'd also find a lot are positive.  It's here. It's not a 'foreign' virus any longer.
