Well let's start off with a canceled Italy trip, holding my breath on a Cyprus trip, and a stopover in Turkey on a business flight.

Probably taking my trip to Miami in 3.5 weeks. Unsure why I would have a less of a chance of getting sick there than here. I'll take extra precautions in the airport.
I'm not who you think I am.

Instead of talking about Trump, now every thread on DDF is talking about COVID-19.

Really just about the plane. Take precautions and you'll be fine iy"h.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

That's the plan. I'm visiting family so not worried about hotels and stuff like that.

As someone who joined the workforce after the great recession, it's the first opportunity to test my temperament against stock market hysteria.
Risk is opportunity

As a travel agent-

My whole day is occupied by clients cancelling tickets.

Getting on my nerves.

Thank God I dont touch mileage tickets - would be more of a disaster.
Make stuff happen.

Because in Florida they're actively covering it up and in NY they're being proactive as they can be. No coincidence that the NY patient was just in Miami.

NY is working on keeping numbers low, too. Sometimes when doctors in hospitals who are following the Department Of Health recommendation to ask the Center for Disease Control to test someone, the CDC says no.  And no test means they don't get a Covid19 positive person.

Why would CDC say no ?

To not find more cases of Covid19.


or they're saving tests for more pressing sick people
or the person answering the phone was lazy
or the CDC has different criteria than the DOH
etc
