Curious to the thoughts of my erudite friends about going to cr with the coronavirus lingering around. Any thoughts or fears?

Move to Antarctica it can't survive the extreme cold. Seriously, if you take the number of deaths versus
infected it comes out to about 1.83% death. If you are in reasonable health you shouldn't have that much
too worry about. The media is really ramping it up, more people have died from the flu than COVID-19.
Bonus: Mike Pence is praying for your recovery :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :D :D :D

I have been using this opportunity to scour for cheap fares and other economic opportunities. I've set my target date for end of May and seen fares as low as below $300 on Copa from LAX. I also just had a Airbnb owner come back to me and drop his price on a 5 night stay by more than $200 compared to about 10 days ago.

Corona will not hold me back.

I read that Corona beer sales have dropped drastically in the last two weeks.
Now that's funny right there.

Went to local Target in Woodland Hills yesterday and the only thing that seemed to be in low supply was Purell and hand sanitizer stuff. Kleenex, Paper Towels, beer....etc. in plenty supply. Then again, that was yesterday. These things can change in a heartbeat.

Not to be alarmist but the fear of the Corona is the overall rate of death (2% of those infected) compared to the rate of death of those who have the flu (.002 %) at least per the CDC:

https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/flu.htm

Would it stop me from traveling somewhere south? No, but not to Asia right now.

And although not near the number of deaths of the flu it is the Corona growth rate that could (hopefully not) turn exponential.

CR may be acting in the right manner, temperature testing at airports has never been effective and many countries will not do it. The warm weather in CR is also a strong tool in prevention as it many need a cold climate to spread the way it has.
