I went to see my primary care doctor yesterday. At the registration desk, the clerk's first question was "have you been out of the country over the past 3 weeks."
Once I said no, I was allow to sign in to see my doctor.
They know it is spreading.

Not surprised that Chinese have been understating the number of cases and number of deaths.

The word coronavirus is now considered racist. The correct term is now something like covfefe19.

I saw my surgeon Monday. I was also asked that question AND if I had been near anyone who had traveled out of the country. Then they listed symptoms that I had to confirm I did not have.

@FISH yes. I cancelled my April trip. May go in October or November if the virus is under control.

Some of passengers could conspire to lower one of the escape boats at night and make their getaway.

Premise for a good movie I'd think.

But hey, with all of the shit that has happened on cruise ships just in this century, I don't recall any feature movies about them... WHY??????

@anniem HA!
He did not ask me if I had been near anyone who who had traveled out of the country. I am now wondering if I looked like a shut-in?  :-X
He did not listed any possible symptoms. I must look healthier than you.  ;)

@GravitySucks I guess that is the smart thing to do. Sad but smart. I imagine people are cancelling travel plans all over the planet.
Not a good time to invest in cruise ships.  ::)

My friends in Thailand say that everything looks deserted. I think I read that 70% of their tourism is from China, plus I am sure other westerners are canceling their trips like I did.  On the one hand it would be nice to be there with zero crowds but I would be nervous about getting sick the entire time. 

Sure do miss those $6/hour Thai massages.

You might. I did just get a call moving one of my appointments to a week later. Without being able to see how I look, I was asked it all again. Who knows!
