Trudeau says Canada not ruling out border closures to fight coronavirus

OTTAWA, March 15 (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday said he would not rule out closing the nation’s borders or forcing people arriving from foreign nations to go into self-isolation to help combat a coronavirus outbreak.

Asked specifically whether Canada might shut its borders to Europe or the United States, Trudeau told CTV: “We are not taking anything off the table.” So far 249 Canadians have tested positive and one person has died. (Reporting by David Ljunggren; Editing by Lisa Shumaker)
