No travel plans, but let just say that I wouldnít even book a first class price mistake traveling through the region or with passengers from the region. Not going south because of Zika was easy (fun fact, got a bad flu on a flight when every outlet was talking about it and was treated as a potential Zika patient at the ER until tests came back) but this is going to be a tough one if it doesnít peak until May or June!

One might avoid catching the coronavirus that way, but might acquire an acute form of OCD.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Pardon my ignorance, but what exactly are you concerned about if youíre not going near China.
Is it the FAís youíre worried about it or is it the passengers on the return flight most likely connecting from China?

What about the age old advice of making sure your hands never go above your neckline?
