#COVID19 #Coronavirus Outbreak ~ Travel Not??

Updated 14 March 2020, 6.40pm

Hmm…SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป as travel lover ๐Ÿ’— really curious ๐Ÿค”

“Do you still continue your travel plans now due to the increasing โฌ†๏ธ concern of COVID-19โ“โ‰๏ธ

 

COVID-19 already reached more than ๐Ÿ’ฏK cases worldwide ๐Ÿ—บ ๐ŸŒ according to World Health Organization (WHO)โ€ผ๏ธ Some countries even exercised travel bans & restrictions โŒโ›”๏ธ

WHO has declared COVID-19 as a pandemic @ 12 March 2020

Ohh no…There are some major events around the world ๐Ÿ—บ๐ŸŒ have unfortunately been called off OR postponed to a later date because of COVID-19

This included the cancellation โŒ of ITB Berlin 2020 ~ 1๏ธโƒฃ of the largest travel exhibition, 1๏ธโƒฃst time in the history ๐Ÿ˜”

The list of cancellation/ postpone running events via ๐ŸŒ https://toughasia.com/covid-19-chaos-race-cancelled-or-postponed/

Even with lots of attractive โฌ‡๏ธ flight fares & tour packages in the market nowโ“โ‰๏ธ

As travel lovers ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—, do you still planning your next tripsโ“โ‰๏ธ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has read & personally trust that there are people ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ still travelling to enjoying no โŒ queue at airport check-in counters/ imigresen counters & quiet planes โœˆ๏ธ now

Also some travellers are NOT โŒ willing to forfeit payments made for travel & hotel bookings, leave cancellation & decided to just carry on with their holiday plans ๐Ÿ˜Ž

 

Hmm…Personally she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป thinks that not to miss some of the flight sales now as the travel period till next year, 2021. By then surely no more COVID-19 by then, yes โœ…, be optimistic & positive ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜

Just sharing her personal thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญ towards COVID-19 as travel lover ๐Ÿ’— Do continue reading ๐Ÿ“– till the end to find out “So, how about SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ“โ‰๏ธ Does she travel nowโ“โ‰๏ธ”ย 

1. Reliable & latest COVID-19 updates

Keep yourself updated with the reliable COVID-19 daily updates i.e. WHO, Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), local health ministries (e.g. Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ Ministry of Health) etc.

Refer below the daily COVID-19 status from Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ Ministry of Health FB page, as of this blog posting being updated @ 14 March 2020

Do check out daily COVID-19 updates in Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พvia ๐ŸŒ https://newslab.malaysiakini.com/covid-19/en

Also the reliable news ๐Ÿ—ž๐Ÿ“ฐ channels i.e. British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC News), CNN International, local news / radio ๐Ÿ“ป channels etc.

2. Travel destination

If your travel destination๐Ÿ“is already with major travel warnings/ restrictions & having โ€œwidespread sustained (ongoing) transmissionโ€, then the answer may be easy ~ CANCEL your travel plan

As at to-date of this blog post, China ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ , South Korea ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท , Iran ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ท & Italy ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น are the high โฌ†๏ธ risk countries i.e. with Level 3๏ธโƒฃ Travel Notice Warning ~ Avoid Nonessential Travel from CDC

For other countries, you may then decide whether necessary & must travel during this period of time OR to reshedule/ postpone ๐Ÿ—“ the trip

3. Travel modes

Do you travel to your next destination with plane โœˆ๏ธ, bus ๐ŸšŒ, car ๐Ÿš—, taxi ๐Ÿš•, rail ๐Ÿš‚, cruise ๐Ÿšข etc.??

Travel with plane โœˆ๏ธ currently as high โฌ†๏ธ risk mode of travel. If you do need to plan air travel, suggest to stick with those airlines that have more flexible cancellation & flight change policies ๐Ÿ˜Š

Not just that travel with cruise ๐Ÿšข also not โŒ advisable due to the serious COVID-19 affected cruise cases being reported ๐Ÿ—ž๐Ÿ“ฐ

4. Travel essentials

Rental pocket wifi ๐Ÿ“ถ is an useful item ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป to stay connected during your trips for latest COVID19 updates ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Standard travel insurance policies usually do not โŒ cover trip cancellations because people have a โ€œfear of travelingโ€

COVID-19 is now well-known around the globe ๐Ÿ—บ๐ŸŒ , hence mostly all insurance providers consider COVID-19 as a โ€œforseeable impact on travelโ€ & exclude it from coverage in most of all travel insurance policies, unless you have bought 1๏ธโƒฃ before Jan 2020

Not to worry, do consider to upgrade your life & medical insurance policies ๐Ÿ˜‰

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has now added โž•face mask ๐Ÿ˜ท, hand ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿป sanitiser, multivitamins ๐Ÿ’Š etc. into her backpack ๐ŸŽ’

5. Self protection pre, during & post travelling

Keeping fit & strengthen own immune system.ย Do practise good ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป hygiene to self protect against any infections

Always carry your own cutlery ๐Ÿด๐Ÿฅข& reusable water bottle while travelling ๐Ÿงณ๐ŸŽ’

Also to avoid eating raw ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿฆ€๐Ÿฆž๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿ™ or undercooked food when travelling abroad. Not โŒ to visit any wet markets where animals are slaughtered, dressed/ butchered ๐Ÿ”ช

Do try to avoid shake hands ๐Ÿค / welcoming hugs ๐Ÿค— /ย  kissing ๐Ÿ˜™ lips/ cheeks/ hands when meeting people ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ during travel journeys

Instead change to another polite greeting style, time to show what we have learnt from the diversity culture across the globe ๐Ÿ—บ๐ŸŒ

Let’s wave ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป, nod & a bow OR a Namaste ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป greeting

Ohh ya…Each of us can now perform own self assess yourselfย via ๐ŸŒ https://www.doctoroncall.com.my/coronavirus/how-to-find-out-if-i-have-coronavirus-online-test

In case of symptoms suggestive of acute respiratory illness ๐Ÿค’ before, during or after the trips, all travellers ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ are encouraged to seek medical attention & share own travel history with the medical cum healthcare providerย ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ

6. Be a responsible traveller

Highly recommend ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿปyou all not โŒ to simply sharing any unverified messages, voice messages, WA messages, emails received etc.

Yes โœ…, not to add unnecessary confusion to an already difficult situation

Stay alert & be mindful that only to trust the news gained from verified reliable news providers ๐Ÿ—ž๐Ÿ“ฐ

Please note that you may be charged for spreading fake news, including through social media channels if being caught by your respective local territories ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ then

How about SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ“โ‰๏ธ Does she travel nowโ“โ‰๏ธ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has actually decided not โŒ to participate 2๏ธโƒฃ media trips within Asia ๐ŸŒŽ that she has been invited recently ๐Ÿ“ง

Yes โœ…, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป does think twice before she on board her trips now due to COVID-19. She can’t be selfish & only thinking about her travel love ๐Ÿ’— She still had her loved ones (especially her mama ๐Ÿง“๐Ÿป after late papa ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป recent passed away) who will worry if she insists to still travel due to current COVID-19 threat

Instead, she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป suggests to exploring own living city ๐ŸŒ†๐Ÿ™ to ease your travel bugs & you may be surprised that many awesome places near you actually
