We are scheduled to be down there in June, but the Mrs. is concerned about Covid-19 (aka Corona virus) down there. Has there been any cases there so far?

Have not heard of any so far. Does not mean there are not people having symptoms spreading it as I type. By June the virus could be over or we could be in the midst of a real outbreak. Do not see how anyone could tell you what the situation will be in June.

My doctor said he hasn't heard of any cases here or GDL yet........

He does expect it to arrive at sometime. It's going everywhere so just follow cleansing precautions and don't worry about it.

Att this point there isn't even many cases in all of Mexico. Could be the heat.

If I was traveling, what would worry me the most is the possibility of borders closing and not being able to get home.

I don't think they will close the borders. Canada, the US and Mexico will tackle it together. Stopping trade between the 3 would cause more damage than the virus.

Keep your immune system healthy and practice hand washing recommendations. Just like you are trying to avoid catching the flu. I am taking extra vitamin C each day.

The best preventative vitamin for keeping your immune system healthy is Vitamin D3. This link is short and sweet but there are others which are very involved and my eyes started to glaze over reading them.
https://www.lifehack.org/492651/why-you-should-go-for-vitamin-d-but-not-vitamin-c-to-prevent-the-common-cold
There are many ways to get vitamin C but few choices for vitamin D3.
I have taken 2,000 I.U. daily for many years. It is gel cap with coconut oil since vitamin D3 absorption requires a fat. And you also require Vitamin D3 for the absorption of calcium to maintain bone and teeth health.
I think I've had one "cold" in the last twenty years.

It has become routine for drs to check vit D levels and prescribe it. Vit D is very important for a lot of metabolic functions

You could have googled it as easily as I did. Plenty of ways to get it in the diet and I'm a salad girl. The only precaution or limitation of K would be if you're on a blood thinner like my hubby was... then I had to be careful that his intake was consistent and balanced.

Also Magnesium and between D3 and Mg, there are a lot of people who are deficient in both.

Google mag pill effectiveness. There are several combination and not all are very effective
When I was working in ICU mag levels were corrected ASAP on all incoming patients. Mag insufficiency is very common in the general population

Agreed! I sent this article to a couple of friends last week. Despite the misleading heading, it is chock full of information including which forms of magnesium are best. It is the one thing that got both my shoulders to function again without pain.

If and when the virus arrives here the local economy is going to be devastated. Think of all the restaurants and small businesses that will go under while everyone hides out. There won't be any government bailout here.

...and bye bye to the annual Snorbirds as well as to the local travel industry.
It is going to be a financial disaster in general. Let's hope it's not as bad as it could be.

Well sunbirds for sure. I think things will settle down by next snowbird season. H1N1 and SARS didn't stay in the news for too long.

I've already had a few inquiries from my upcoming sunbird guests as to whether or not the virus is around here.

Miss typed: I meant SNOWBIRDS. However....
I'd like to think you're right, Bob, but the next "season" for Snowbirds is coming much sooner than the predictions of having an effective vaccine or cure.

I watch out for ALL snowbirds and sunbirds - just on general principles.

This is going to decimate the travel and entertainment industry.

Given the Mexican system for reporting "any" statistic correctly, do you honestly believe that the protocol is in place for reporting the Covid-19 virus...and do you honestly believe that you will find better care in Mexico than NOB??.
If the most at risk are "average 80 yrs old plus underling health conditions" then a large segment of Lakeside residents fall into this group.
With respect Bob your comments on your Asia trip were "interesting" , but you could be the one who unwittingly carried the virus to Mexico!!!

Well I've been back two weeks and no symptoms so far. My doctor whom I just saw the other day said no problem with me. It will likely arrive here by a tourist from the US or Canada. They are the ones that bring the flu here too.

Holy Crap! 12 minutes ago...
Trump will suspend all US travel to and from Europe for next 30 days

President Trump announced tonight that all travel from Europe to the United States will be suspended for the next 30 days, except for the UK.

Trump made the decision in order to "keep new cases from entering our shores." He said the new rule will go into effect beginning Friday at midnight.

"We will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days. The new rules will go into effect Friday at midnight. These restrictions will are be adjusted subject to conditions on the ground," the President said from the Oval Office.

Trump said there will be certain exemptions made for certain Americans "who have undergone appropriate screenings."

"These prohibitions will not only apply to the tremendous amount of trade and cargo, but various other things as we get approval. Anything coming from Europe to the United States is what we are discussing. These restrictions will also not apply to the United Kingdom," Trump added.

There’s already over 1300 confirmed cases in USA. They just don’t want to become overwhelmed like Italy is.
