As fears of the coronavirus spread, U.S.-China travel is grinding to a halt. Three major U.S. airlines—United, American, and Delta—are canceling flights between the two countries, and not just for this weekend.

United and American will restart service in late March. But you can’t fly Delta to China until May 1 the earliest. 

Airline stocks took a hit yesterday, but then again...so did most stocks.

On Thursday, the State Department issued its highest-level warning—a Level 4—advising Americans not to travel to China. Then, pilots and flight attendants asked, “so why are we still traveling to China?” and demanded airlines cancel flights.

The CDC has issued a quarantine for 195 Americans who were evacuated from Wuhan, China, as a preventative measure. It’s the agency’s first mandatory quarantine order in more than 50 years.

The virus is hammering a global freight industry that relies on China. Shipping rates for the massive ships that carry raw materials have dropped more than 90% since a September peak.
