"If there's one thing we've learned since the coronavirus outbreak went global in January, it's that a lot can change in 24 hours. Seemingly overnight, the viral hysteria has apparently arrived in the US, alongside the news of the first virus-related death in Washington State.
Hoarding has already begun. President Trump has issued "do not travel" warnings affecting 'hot zones' in Italy and South Korea. In Italy, the Level 4 State Department advisory affects the hardest-hit provinces of Lombardy and Veneto, where 'community transmission' has already been confirmed.
In South Korea, it affects the city of Daegu. In Europe, France and Switzerland have banned large gatherings over 5,000, and canceled all sporting events. Games, events, and conferences across the world have been canceled as airlines continue to cut back on routes, with the focus turning to Italy and South Korea."
