Feel like I'm gonna have to cancel my little adventure, I've been paying close attention to the cured vs died stat as opposed to the infected vs died stat, seems the logical one to follow at this stage.

Weren't you planning to visit Vietnam, where the death toll is zero?

If you’re just checking in with us this Monday, here are the major developments in the ongoing coronavirus story:

- There are now 17,459 confirmed cases, according to Johns Hopkins University. The death toll is 362 people, while 489 have recovered.
- The death toll is now higher than that from the Sars epidemic, which was 349 people.
- More and more countries are temporarily banning people coming from mainland China from entering. Among them is New Zealand, whose prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, this morning cited “the range of unknowns in the way the virus is being transmitted” to justify her country’s decision.
- We’ve registered the first fatality from the disease outside China. A 44-year-old Chinese citizen has died in the Philippines after travelling there from Wuhan, where he was from. The race is now on to identify everyone he came into contact with, including passengers in the aircraft he flew in, and staff in the hotels where he stayed. He was travelling with a 38-year-old woman who was confirmed to have had the virus but was no longer showing symptoms.
- Outside China, Hong Kong and Macau, the highest number of confirmed cases are in Japan (20 people), Thailand (19), Singapore (18), South Korea (15), Australia (12) and the US, which confirmed its 11th case overnight. A woman in Santa Clara, California, had recently travelled to Wuhan and returned with the virus. But her symptoms are said to be minor and she’s being quarantined at home.
- The outbreak has battered Chinese stock markets, which have plunged at least 7% after reopening for the first time since they closed for the lunar new year on 23 January. Trading in several commodities was suspended after losses quickly exceeded their daily limits.

But zero is only a few deaths away from a million

:facepalm:
well this is untrue, never trust the guardian to get it right LOL
" The death toll is now higher than that from the Sars epidemic, which was 349 people."
774 died form SARS
"...which have plunged at least 7% after reopening "
plunged 9% an ended up at closing down nearly 8%
Philippine President Duterte yesterday announced a ban on non-citizens traveling from, or through, China, regardless of nationality, on the same day New Zealand announced similar restrictions.

The decisions, both from countries which rely heavily on tourism from China, come as the number of Coronavirus cases continues to skyrocket. The number of confirmed cases rose by more than 1000 over the weekend alone, mainly in China, despite severe travel restrictions placed on some 50 million people in Hubei province.
....Many of them have taken action to stop the spread of the virus by blocking entry to Chinese nationals or to people who have recently traveled from or through China. In addition to the Philippines and New Zealand, other countries imposing travel restrictions include the United States, Australia, Israel and Singapore, while Japan and South Korea have imposed looser restrictions which apply to people from Hubei only.

Before I left Thailand last Friday I checked the price of the hotel in Chinatown, Bangkok I normally stay at thinking I'd have a Saturday night/morning there on the way back this weekend, 1,475 didn't book it as too expensive. Out of curiosity just checked it now, " Special Early 2020 deal - 1,075"

What a difference a week makes :D
Yes sir, I can boogie, I can boogie, boogie, boogie all night long.
