You are overly optimistic with the timeframe. We should be more worried about how many Asian carriers will still be standing at the end of all this. At the height of SARS, flights were still operating into HKG, though on a reduced schedule. Now it is basically a complete withdrawal of flights and the ramifications will be much more profound.

I didn't save anything on the ticket because I had bought a round-the-world fare a few months before, but everything in Singapore was empty and dirt cheap. Hotels, restaurants, shops. I was treated like a long lost relative. The only remotely similar treatment was when I visited France a few months after 9/11. I want to ride the train from Beijing to Tibet, and I may do it as soon as the Corona virus thing seems to be under control. Timing is everything.
