Should I go travelling to the Philippines despite the Coronavirus outbreak?

I really want to book a solo travelling trip to the Philippines very soon. However, everyone is saying not to due to the Coronavirus. Please give me some advice and if you think it's too risky to go?

    Book a ticket to Philippines once the pandemic is over. It will be risky to travel as tourist due to pandemic or you might have difficulty going back to your country because of quarantine.

    No. The Philippine government doesn't allow foreigners in the country due to the coronavirus lockdown. It's better to wait until later in the year instead.

    No visas are being  issued at this time.

    You won't be able to go, this country is locked down so you won't get international flights but you get a ticket for very cheap now and make it for much later. Duterte doesn't want anyone there either just as most countries want no international fights. Covid-19 is very serious.

    Right now, I'd say don't plan to fly before May at the earliest, and probably July or August would be better. The problem isn't getting there...it will be trying to get back. More flights are cancelled daily. Pretty soon, just about everywhere outside of the Philippines will be high risk for COVID 10 and cancelling flights in and out. The Philippines would not be a bad place to hang out for a while, if you had to be stuck SOMEWHERE. But unless you are planning to go to the Philippines on a one-way ticket, I'd strongly advise you to not make a reservation for any flight landing before mid-July....

    The Philippines appear to be the least affected among Asian countries by the COVID, with only one death.  The man who died was a South Korean who came to the country as a visitor.

    The man, who came from Wuhan, the center of the outbreak in China, had ... visited Japan, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand, despite criticism from China ... Nor should he hold hands during prayers, he said. The Philippine government had been too slow to ban travel.

    It is best not to go, or postpone your trip to later months and see how this turns out.

    Go somewhere else.  There are plenty of countries with prostitutes.
