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.
