    Please do not travel. Coronavirus will still be around in December.

    Stop the spread

            @stirlo: So is the best method right now to infect everyone in the world? For "immunity" regardless of what happens? I mean our economy depends on it right?

              @Turd: Not sure why you replied off topic to my post above correcting @thedriver about how vaccines work but I'm bored so I'll reply…

              Thats the only way to defeat it. It's in a million people and the surfaces they've touched now. It's impossible to prevent it infecting most people in the world. The only question is how that happens.

              The best solution is to infect everyone with an inactive/weak version of it (also known as a vaccine).

              If a vaccine is not possible then next best is to infect those with the strong likelyhood of survival (the young and healthy) first. Treat the small percentage that fall seriously ill and once a large group of people are already infected and recovered they can care for the vulnerable until herd immunity kicks in.

              Managing the infection rate (flattening the curve) is exactly what the government is doing right now.

                @stirlo: RIP old people and those young with medical issues.

                •  

                  @Turd: Um they continue to stay at home as they are now? The government provides contactless delivery of essentials. The important thing to note is currently every person is a possible carrier and any contact the vulnerable have with others is a risk. Once people are recovered they can safely assist the vulnerable without risk of infecting them. Unlike now where a single sneeze at the wrong time could kill them.

                  •  

                    @stirlo: Isnt it best to just herd immunity it? So that people can go back to work? Thats what you suggested.

                    So thus RIP old and those young with medical issues.

                      @Turd: Herd immunity is not mutually exclusive with stay at home guidance.

                      Once the systems are in place to manage a higher number of infections the restrictions will be lessened (especially for those less vulnerable) and herd immunity will be achieved in a way similar to how I described above

                      •  

                        @stirlo: Herd immunity was adopted at the beginning in UK and soon criticized and abandoned by UK.

                        Have a look at this video. Richard Horton is the chief editor of the Lancet

                        @stirlo: The theory sounds good, but even younger ones are going into ICU, the only difference is that they come out the other side vs the older who can die.

                        So the figures we really dont have is what percent of younger ones dont require ICU/Ventilators and how long they dont require it for.

                        For all cases if you get it bad, its a very painful experience. Some say more like malaria than the flu.

            @stirlo: Currently, there is no evidence that those who have recovered are immune either temporarily or permanently, and if they are temporarily immune there is no evidence to suggest for how long, (weeks or months).

      If you think we will be in a state of travel restriction by then we might as well just pack up all industry and close shop.
      Just go back to producing everything locally and having no contact with anyone outside our homelands.

      I can't believe you were negged…this forum never ceases to surprise me

    I think the error is that the price is too high😀

  •  

    I don’t think that this is an error fare. There have been sales with these sort of price in the recent past. So with C19 present, these prices are to be expected. Good deal nevertheless.

    You should probably give some credit to the source of this deal, OP.

    • Insurance policies aren't covering cancellations anymore for COVID-19 reasons or related impact. Any cancellation refunds are likely to be at the liberty of airline you book with and their policy may change as per their convenience.
    • Consider to pay only with a credit card instead of cash deposits. But be ready for credit card transaction disputes as likely many airlines won't survive and bookings will be void.
    • The national carriers like Air Canada, Qantas etc. are at least a safer bet as they will either be bought out, sell a stake or get government bail-out package however. At least they will be operational post this pandemic.
      Good luck!

    But these are return flights, so you would go straight back?

    •  

      I think they are saying you can not use the return leg, and its still cheaper than a oneway flight, which arent often discounted. For those based in Canada but stuck here

    Buy now, later saying, “i have to gooo coz the fares are non refundable. Taxpayers pay for my evacuation flight, covid treatment or hotel isolation anyway, so i dont care.”

    Can we forbid all travel deals for the time being?

  •  

    Yeah.. nahh i'll pass.

  •  

    Guys, forget about travelling anywhere till at least 2021 - countries like the US and UK are not stopping the spread that much - it will still be around, if not worse in 2020.

  •  

    Yes let's encourage people with the highest rate of corona virus in the world to visit here

  •  

    No guarantee that the airline will honour the tickets.I have a mate stuck in South Afica who had a return flight booking with Qantas…..they're ignoring his pleas as we speak.
