You probably planned to have an enjoyable vacation this 2020 for your honeymoon, or just to congratulate yourself after accomplishing something special in your life, maybe it is because you just got some time off work after so long and you wanted to spend it on a vacation in a foreign country. But… right before your plans are accomplished the world suffers severely from a Coronavirus outbreak.
Panic vs spread
The spread of panic outshines the spread of the virus. As a result of fear from the Coronavirus outbreak, countries ban international traveling. The world witnesses border shutdowns, hotel closures, and “Staying home is the best way to protect yourself from getting sick” wins the most famous precaution note from “No Smoking”!
Are your vacation plans still the same up to now? As per your fever of enthusiasm for the vacation, you are likely not to cancel your plans, only to postpone for a while until for example, they would find a Coronavirus vaccine. By looking at the situation right now it seems like the vaccine is yet to be found. What does this all mean to you and your plans?
