Wow!

https://anash.org/kosher-saves-man-from-deadly-virus/

A Jewish man who was about to board the now virus-plagued cruiseliner, refused to join when he discovered his Kosher meals hadn’t been ordered.

By VosIzNeias

Nir Gilad, a young Israeli who had recently returned to Judaism, decided to go on a cruise with the “Diamond Princess”, a luxury liner. Gilad requested that the company provide him with special kosher meals and the company agreed to accede to his request.

However, when Gilad arrived at the ship, he was shocked to discover that his kosher meals had not been ordered. Gilad decided immediately not to ascend onto the ship even though it entailed considerable financial loss.

Gilad was upset to miss out on the cruise but after a week he heard that the coronavirus had broken out on the ship and it was stranded near Japan with no country allowing the ship entry. At present the liner has 175 diagnosed cases of coronavirus, making it the worst outbreak of the virus outside mainland China.

Gilad realized that his insistence on kosher food had saved him from suffering the fate of the other passengers, who still do not know when they will be released from the ship and how they will return home.

World of Hyatt Extends Tier Status And Benefits, Advancing Care For Members During COVID-19
CHICAGO (February 19, 2020) – In response to the COVID-19 situation, World of Hyatt today announced that it will be offering members residing in the Asia Pacific region a series of tier status and benefits extensions, including:

Qualifying World of Hyatt Discoverist, Explorist and Globalist members will now have a new tier expiration of February 28, 2022 – rather than February 28, 2021 – to maintain their elite tier status and benefits.
Currently valid Suite Upgrade Awards, Club Access Awards and Free Night Awards that expire in 2020 for qualifying members will be extended through December 31, 2021.
World of Hyatt is also working to evaluate tier and benefit extensions for global members who travel frequently to the Asia Pacific region.

“Now more than ever, it’s a priority for us to stay close to our World of Hyatt members, understand how their lives are impacted and help,” said Amy Weinberg, senior vice president, World of Hyatt. “Extending the expiration of elite tier status and benefits for our members is one of the ways we can care for our most loyal guests, so they have one less thing to worry about during this incredibly difficult time.”

World of Hyatt is actively working to update qualifying members’ accounts to reflect the extension of elite tier status and award validity and expects these changes to be made by March 31, 2020. Qualifying members will receive information regarding these updates through email, My Hyatt Concierge, WeChat communications and more.  Members with questions regarding their tier status can contact the nearest Hyatt Global Contact Center, reach Hyatt via WeChat (WeChat ID: HyattHotels) or email worldofhyatt@hyatt.com.

Hyatt remains committed to caring for its colleagues, guests and customers, as well as the communities in which Hyatt hotels operate. To further care for communities impacted by the current global health crisis, Hyatt has made a meaningful donation to the China Women’s Development Foundation, a national public foundation that has been actively working to support the emergency relief works, including donation of medical equipment and care programs for frontline medical members and their families during this crisis.

Hyatt locations globally will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation, remain vigilant and follow recommended procedures and protocols from various health organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local authorities – in an effort to ensure the continued safety and wellbeing of guests and colleagues.

Don't worry about visiting Florida! People in Florida are immune to Coronavirus, as long as censorship is in place.

More dangerous than the virus is the fear it causes. Some level of censorship should be in place to protect stupid Americans from themselves.
Not that the government should stop the media from posting things, but the government should withhold certain facts that the people don't have to know.
I'm not who you think I am.

Complete censorship is never the answer, just ask the CCP how many people got infected during their cover up scandal. But it’s a discussion worth having, and you are right about how it can be worse to scare people. But I think responsible reporting and taking responsible measures is the fine line between censorship and fear mongering, and they chose the wrong side.

More like copying other programs. I'm sure they'll find a way to cause more headaches for people with this though.
