    Operating word being confirmed.
    Some governments are obviously hiding things.

      I'm traveling a lot this year, and I'm already thinking I maybe should cancel..
      You might be an exception, but don't kid yourself that the people canceling their trips are doing it out of fear of spreading the virus. They fear contracting it or being caught in a quarantine situation.

      And "shutting down the world" is literally impossible for a gazillion reasons, not just because of economical damage.

      At this point it is damn obvious that containment measures have failed. At least two weeks incubation time, sometimes even longer. Carriers who experience no symptoms at all. The domino effect is in full motion. Now, I'm not saying anyone should travel to areas with lots of confirmed cases, but literally anyone of us could have already been in contact with an infected person.
      So everybody should stop panicking and buying into ridiculous conspiracy theories and instead do what you should have been doing for the last couple of weeks anyway: Up your hygiene standards, especially when in close contact with babies, elderlies and sick people, avoid unneccesary exposure to unsanitary situations and carry on.

        PERIOD! Singapore ain't playing with y'all.

        That's why Singapore is winning the battle. Just last week (or two weeks ago?), they had the second highest number of cases, today they're already down to #7 and also with the highest number of discharged outside China. Flights from two cities of South Korea are going to be banned as of today as well!

        I'm heading to Singapore next week and I have to say I feel really safe now. Fingers crossed it's gonna get even better in the next couple of days.

            I'm really starting to worry about this thing now. More so about the economic impact.

              Two days later and there are already 6 or 7 cases here; and from every corner of the country. Some people I know are already starting to freak out. Damn...

                  I'm not worried for myself, for most people that catch it it will just result in a regular flu. I do however worry for those that are vulnerable to it and since I wouldn't want to carry it to infect others I do have some concerns.

                      At this point it’s actually kinda scary.

                        Same. But the most I'm actually worried about its economic impact, just like dylonj. This could make a serious impact if it continues to grow like this.

                        Though it's really starting to get low-key weird to see something like this happening literally everywhere on the world at the moment. I don't know if something like this ever happened in the last 20 to 30 years - especially with how fast it's starting to appear in every country and then also starts to increase this fast.

                              Yeah. I usually drive for uber in my part time, but I haven’t done it in the last week and a half. I don’t think I’m gonna take the chance even though there hasn’t been a report led case in my city.

                              Life sucks! I have so much to deal with now I have to worry about this damn virus.

                                Yeah so I decided to cancel my trip to Singapore next week as well. Didn't plan to do so but I just saw the news yesterday that a 12-year old student in Singapore who's never been to China has been infected by the virus and they had to close the whole school for today. Not sure if I could get a full refund for the hotels & flights but fingers crossed.

                                    A woman who works in a day care center has been infected over here, her boyfriend has been tested positive as well now and the children she was working with are in quarantine for two weeks now.

                                    They also already cancelled some big(ger) events in Switzerland.

                                    It only gets worse.

                                    And... it's so weird. I have a sore throat for a week now and have to cough every now and then. Usually I wouldn't care about that... but now?

                                      Ok... this is just ugh. Our Federal Council just announced that all events with 1,000 or more people are not allowed anymore.

                                      And I have tickets for a Halsey concert on Monday and Avril concert in two weeks. I hope they will still happen... otherwise I'm really annoyed. Especially the Halsey one, I've been waiting for her for forever.

                                        Coronavirus doesn't spread in between 999 people? Those people are so gonna damage the economy so much more than that virus could ever imagine to...

                                          Just take some vitamins/meds and be careful of where you're going. You're gonna be alright.

                                                Thanks... to be honest, I‘m not that worried about me, but everyone already looks at you when you cough. Already saw some older people having masks etc.

                                                Also, my two concerts got postponed. I know it‘s for the better, but it‘s still annoying. I mean, if people would wash their hands and are responsible, wouldn‘t that be already enough? I wash my hands with soap 5-10 times a day and always did it like that...

                                                • My concert next Friday (Kelis) is taking place unless she changes her mind.

                                                  I am semi-worried about Corona. I just wonder when they come up with a vaccination for it. That would be indeed very helpful.

                                                  I am working at a university, so I‘m basically around people and students all the time.
