If you can travel at that time then do so. Get off the plane and drink and be merry. The way the hysteria is going we'll all be on lock down soon for something no deadlier than bee stings (ok i made that up). 

From what i gather, people here seem quite relaxed about it.......so far.

Don't take this personally but IMO it's a daft question, have your holiday and dont give it a seconds thought!

Couldn't agree more.

Carmel,

Three weeks ago there were no travel concerns in Italy and other countries. 
Today March 9,  a very different story exists.

You will know much more in the next two weeks before you arrive in Spain.

This is an unprecedented event and the professionals expect Covid 19 to affect many more thousands of people all over the world.

Hopefully a vaccine will be found.

Best wishes

Maria

I’m flying out tomorrow with my husband and granddaughter.for a few days . We are staying in a friends villa .  If we were going to a hotel or were in our 70s with any health issues I probably wouldn’t .

Planes are like big Petri-dishes in the sky: If someone had to invent a unit for rapidly spreading a virus amongst humans, they'd end up with something akin to a plane. If you have to get on one, take a lot of precautions. If you don't have to get on one, don't.

At the present rate, it's looking like Spain is the next Italy.

You don't travel for two weeks, and In terms of the virus, that's a very VERY long time. 

I'm due to go to Turkey in mid-April. We've already written that trip off. We would then be over to Spain most months from around May onwards, but we've pulled the plug on those trips too.

I'm not pandering to the scaremongers or over-reacting, I'm just adopting a sensible approach: The spread of this virus won't be stopped by government actions and guidelines but by people using common sense. A commodity in very short supply nowadays.

EDIT: That last comment comes across as aimed at people/someone here, it's not. It's just a general observation.

The coronavirus figures for Spain, as of 9 this morning are

1.247 infections and 30 deaths

30 infections and 1 death in Comunidad Valenciana

Madrid is worst hit and Madrid schools and universities are shutting for 15 days from tomorrow.

The rate of increase at the moment is doubling every 48 hours.

Thank you for the update Ray .  We are flying into  Alicante and staying in Cabo Roig.   As I understand it there are no cases of the virus in that area at the moment .
