my parents had a planned trip to thr US in 3 weeks. Why are they more at risk in the US? Or is it the flight here? Wouldn’t they be just as much at risk in India ?

I don’t think they are necessarily safer or at risk in the US vs India. However I do think the travel poses the biggest risk and for older people if possible be avoided.

Has anyone paid for actual coaches/is it worth it if so? Obv super expensive and I’m not necessarily a rich person, but I could probs justify it considering the simple ROI of an MBB offer and lifetime value vs some that of the other firms. Also, understandably would only consider reputable coaches with a successful track record.
