Thermal scanning at airports detects less than 1 in 5 passengers arriving from a 12 hour flight who are infected with the new coronavirus, according to preliminary estimates from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM).
Using this information, combined with data on the sensitivity of thermal scanners, the LSHTM team used a mathematical model to estimate that for every 100 infected travellers planning to take a 12 hour flight, only 9 will be detected at entry screening upon arrival.

Now there's a Cruise Ship with 7000 passengers on lock down .Source
They have been cleared as the original passengers they were concerned about tested negative.
If the turnaround time for these tests is now less than 24 hours should we have a lot more updates from some of the pending cases that have been first documented almost a week ago now? I'm really confused about this since we've heard a few instances of quick results now

All it takes is one lapse with anything, but if this particular doctor is one of the first to see the patient or even one not dealing with the patient and someone else's lapse caught him ... It happens.
And it will happen.
There were health care professionals who caught Ebola too, and that one is even more of a sure killer.
WHO defines a global health emergency, also known as a “public health emergency of international concern,” as an “extraordinary event” that is “serious, unusual or unexpected.”
