We were scheduled to board a Singapore Airlines flight to Hong Kong in 2 days. Thereafter we would be on the Celebrity Millennium cruise ship and gone a total of 3 weeks in Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand and Singapore.
But then the friggin’ coronavirus went out of control. As you might imagine, we were very concerned. The majority of people infected are in our age group and the recovery rate at the time of this post is a pitiful 8%. And my wife is highly susceptible to bronchitis and pneumonia.
We canceled our trip.
You should too!
The very last thing we want is to be quarantined in a foreign country with no idea when we can get home,
- On a ship
- In a hotel
- In a hospital
- Anywhere in fact.
For everyone concerned about the status of this outbreak (not yet pandemic status but it seems to be ambitious and headed that way)…
About 4 months ago Eric Toner, a scientist at Johns Hopkins predicted a coronavirus pandemic that would leave 65 million dead.
How would you like to see the coronavirus status in real time?
