On this episode, experts share what you need to know right now about traveling during the coronavirus outbreak. First, Dr. Hanh Le, the head of Healthline Media Medical Affairs, discusses the origins and concerns around the rapid and global spread of the virus, and how the medical world has responded to this global emergency. She shares sound tips you can use today to protect yourself, like how to keep your airplane seat clean and explains why health officials, like herself, are skeptical of surgical mask efficacy. After the break, Ben Mutzabaugh, TPG's senior aviation editor, shares his insights into airline suspensions, cancellation waivers and what to do if you're planning to fly in the next eight weeks. Mutzabaugh also offers his opinion on whether the airline cancellations could pose economic threats to low-cost carriers if these cancellations continue.
