What happens if a doctor advises someone not to travel?
I don't have personal experience with this but I know in general, based on what I have heard from other people, doctor's notes do help.

I'm not talking specific to this virus though. Still, I think YMMV depending on your specific situation and how much patience you have.

A potential covered situation would be a quarantine imposed by a physician or governmental authority for health reasons. Still, we’ve confirmed with Chase’s Card Benefit Services that this would only apply if you’re actually infected with the virus — not if you’ve been quarantined out of precaution.

I would double check with the insurance company, though, as coverage may exclude 'pandemics'.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I'm getting a little worried, I have a flight for Israel on Sunday and debating if I should still go or not.

why would this make Israel any less safe than the US?

Traveling is less safe, and Israel may close down the border resulting in no flights home.

Exactly - if less people travel, there are fewer people who might need to be quarantined on the way back.

 I think my biggest fear is landing in Israel and being quarantined for 2 weeks. This would mean that I not only miss the wedding I am traveling for, but that I also spend 2 weeks in Israel without seeing or doing anything.

There is a mandatory quarantine now for people who were in Korea, Japan, Thailand, etc.

Anyhow my point was if Israel bars entry to all non residents the airlines will cancel the flights.

Without even thinking about deaths, I'm Just thinking of industries that can be destroyed by this. even if it does not last too much longer:

1)airlines. countries barring entry literally means planes will be parked. i cant imagine international airlines can survive if flights are halted for 3 months.
2)china production means our goods will be delayed, more expensive or supply will just be an issue.
3)If above happens, thats when it really affects the stock market. whcih causes financial issues overall.


sounds kinda scary :-[

Governments will bail out the airlines. It will just be a major slowdown.
