A middle school in Northern Virginia this week canceled a visit of 21 Chinese exchange students and their chaperones amid the China-linked coronavirus outbreak that’s sickened more than 500 people and killed at least 17. In a letter sent to parents on Wednesday, Carole Kihm, the principal of Longfellow Middle School in Fairfax County, which the students were slated to temporarily attend, said they would no longer be visiting the school. The students are from Yichang in Hubei province — the same province where Wuhan, the city where the outbreak first began, is located.
