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.

i cant imaging them keeping people in the country who want to leave
they might not let you come in anymore

World War Z
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.

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

Israel is not less safe, but the plane might be.
I am going to Miami in 3 weeks, and I am reconsidering that.

I wonder if this well result in people cancelling there passover trips.

Last week I took a flight to New York and my flight was empty. I asked the stewardess about it and she said: Coronavirus! People are afraid to travel!

Unlike a human judge who can only judge the person in front of him and does not take into account the man's family and friends, Hashem does not bring a "דין" to this world until everyone in the world deserves to be punished. In some way, we're all responsible for the market crashing and flights being cancelled - so even if you're not directly affected by this "pandemic," we're still chayiv to daven for the דין to be erased.

But I did get three seats to myself in the exit row because of it... so there's always some rachamim within the din.

Have a great shabbos,

There are a lot of interesting plot lines starting to form here. Obviously, COVID-19 and loss of life is tragic, but the ripples could go much further.

For example, an operative helping presidential candidate X could start spreading pandemic fear on Super Tuesday/Israeli election day, to make people stay home.

I am now truly on the fence about my trip to Israel on Sunday. I think that I am still going to go - just afraid of being quarantined when I get there and missing the wedding which is the whole reason I am going.

As for industry - while some of the interruptions are immediate, understand that there is going to be a supply chain lag - i.e. Stores/retailers have inventory now, as do some factories, and those factories and their suppliers have components at hand. But if this shuts down component manufacture, it will have a lagged impact on the consumer.

In other words - The Electronic Device you're going to buy in June, which will be manufactured in April will be delayed because of parts that were not made in February

That's all? I am hearing words about problems in the supply chain in the Kashrus world...
