Since we will never travel again, thanks to Coronavirus, shall we burn our passports?

The odds of us getting permission to travel again are slim to none. At least for the next 20 years. 

Places like NYC, Italy, Spain and Asia are all out of the question for life.

Besides, if travel bans ARE lifted, what's the point of traveling if your destinations will just resemble apocalyptic ghost towns, with boarded up stores, tourist attractions in decay, and the only signs of life being boarder guards in face masks and latex gloves (who ask you "Why are you visiting such a bleak folded up place?)?

    Go right ahead and burn your passport if you want to be melodramatic.

    I would rather  NOT have to apply for a new one when travel does become possible again.

    No, there's no point in burning them. Even if you don't get to use them again, they're a good memory of a better time. But it's unlikely that you'll never get to travel again.

    That's fictional. I think the lockdowns are slowing down.

    You are over-reacting. Panicking is not going to help anyone and the only thing it will change is the availability of product - to unavailable.

    Don't be ridiculous. But sure - burn your passport if you want.

    We will travel again, and tourism will bounce back here and abroad.  While many small businesses may not make it, someone else will open another store in the abandoned shop.

    It won't happen tomorrow, but rest assured - it will happen.  People won't forget the virus, but they'll adapt and continue their travels as soon as they think it's relatively safe.  Probably late fall, things will start moving again.
