• Inclement weather that causes complete cessation of services for 24 hrs.
• Strike, resulting in the complete cessation of travel services at the point of departure and/or destination.
• A Terrorist Incident in a City listed on the Insured’s itinerary (Please see the specific wording for your state included in the certificate of coverage).
• A delay due to theft of passports or visas specifically required for the Insured’s Trip.
• Insured or a Traveling Companion being the victim of a Felonious Assault within 10 days prior to his/her departure date.

Cambodia still sticking with one??? even thou they say they have quarantined 4 from that viet jet plane but have NOT said they were reporting positive

Karakoram Highway in Pakistan is part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor
Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia and Pakistan may be under-reporting cases of Covid-19 to avoid antagonising China, on whom they rely for major investments in infrastructure, the analyst Fitch Solutions said in a research note yesterday.

Laos and Myanmar have yet to report a single case, while Cambodia is reporting one and Pakistan has logged five so far.

This appears anomalous because Chinese companies and workers had a heavy presence in those countries before the outbreak in Wuhan captured international attention.

Fitch said poor healthcare systems might go some way to explaining the low numbers.

But it added that “a desire to avoid antagonising China by ‘overreacting’ to the outbreak” is also a cause.

The four countries are all participating in China’s Belt and Road Initiative, which gives them access to capital for infrastructure in exchange for loyalty to China.

China, meanwhile, has repeatedly voiced displeasure with countries instituting travel restrictions against its citizens.

I would think you would still want to be covered by medical and otherwise for things other than coronavirus.

And if airlines cancel I think they give you options to reschedule or refund but again you have to check the respective airline's policy on that before purchasing.

Went for a check-up at Pachem Dental in Siem Reap and they have a little table set up outside with hand clearer for everyone going in.
They are also taking temperatures.

CDC is covering up cases and you don’t trust China? Must be nice to be so blind.
