I've stopped ordering Coronas all together, let alone on flights



During a bad year, the flu kills over 60,000 Americans. It’s much more of a threat than the Wuhan virus.


This novel coronavirus currently has a mortality rate of 2% mainly in groups with weakened immune systems. SARS, another novel coronavirus, was 10% and Ebola has been as high as 50% (though this has improved with recent treatment advances, but you sure as hell don’t want to encounter Ebola nonetheless).

Most of the deaths seem to be from viral pneumonia resulting from the new virus. There are vaccines for some pneumonia strains and it will be interesting to see if that helps limit follow-on pneumonia risk from the new coronavirus. These vaccines can be gotten by swinging by most chain pharmacies though of course you should ask your doctor first. And get a flu shot to limit the more immediate risk from that in the US.


Keep things in perspective, 8200 Americans have died from the flu this season and very few of us have qualms about traveling so why worry about coronavirus yet


I just let another analyst take my place on a business trip to Germany . She's been wanting to travel for a long time and I grew up there so...meh. My first thought was.....hope you don't die!


Is it bad in Germany? I thought there were no cases there yet

Flying into ATL every week for the next few months. Kinda anxious, but honestly what can you do? If you worried about things with such low probability you wouldn’t fly. You’d be Bob from What About Bob?


I’m flying to SF next week and a bit anxious. Planning to wear a mask and use antibacterial wipes on plane. Basically following flu prevention recs.


SA1- we will probably find out once a few cases are confirmed. I've been traveling for years...honestly, it doesn't bother me. There's just too much that's going on in yhe world right now.

About to hit 1 YOE in my first job post grad and have a feeling raises/market adjustments won’t be sufficient due to Covid even though the firm seems to be meeting expectations in terms of the feedback we’ve received from management.
