At the beginning of the month I wrote about Beijing China- $291 Roundtrip, A Deal Too Good To Pass Up. A little over a week after I booked this great deal I started hearing about the coronavirus in China.

A week or so later I decided to reach out to Expedia to try to cancel my flight. At the time, the threat level was only a Level 1. After a few days, I was able to cancel my flight without penalty.

By the time I canceled, parts of China were listed as a Level 3 threat according to the CDC.

As the days go by, the coronavirus seems to be getting much worse and rapidly spreading, even to other countries.

Yesterday “the State Department announced a highest-level warning not to travel to China due to the recent coronavirus outbreak,” according to CNN. The Level 4 states to not travel to China due to the outbreak and the World Health Organization has stated that the outbreak is an international issue.

At this point, the virus has killed over 200 people and there are over 8,000 cases in mainland China. There are also over 100 other cases in 20 countries around the world.
The coronavirus is spreading more each the day. Hopefully, we start to hear some better news regarding the outbreak but things certainly aren’t sounding great.
