Conferences in Singapore are being impacted.

A friend was told by her company their trip there was cancelled. She has invited some of her family (4 others) to meet there the following week for a family vacation. They all cancelled because Singapore has 28 cases of the new virus according to the WHO Feb 6 status report.

Singapore has the most cases outside China. HKG has 21, Macau 10.

Crazy people who are bad at math. China is one thing, but Singapore? Really? Last time I traveled there, the Asian connection was NRT, so nearly zero risks. Japan and Thailand both report 25 cases, BTW.

The third person found to have the virus in the UK had recently been in Singapore, and not China. Very unlucky, or tip of a potential iceberg?
