Not quite simple Mr Ian as there is not currently a vaccine. The same demographic (elderly, previous respiratory problems) are most at risk (Note: I'm not a medic so check this more thoroughly). I agree not a need to panic but it seems sensible avoiding areas with high rates of infection at present. Even until we know more.

Will that mean that Munster will want to give their Irish players a game against our seconds to keep them match fit?..A bit unfair if they do 😱

The game is called off but all the flights between Italy and Ireland are still going on?
 
If you had paid for a flight and a hotel wouldn't you still travel?
 
Not sure of why cancelling the game is going to stop the virus travelling with these people if they have it?

Game is off but italian fans can trave to Dublin...we are living stringe years.
Two games off in the last 6 months is a world record for Italy and I thank never  seen  in the last 40 years of rugby

Agreed, it all seems very strange to me.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

That’s a very good point  which I just had not thought of . Yes of course the Italian fans will travel or most will , for a weekend in Dublin. Yes the concentration of fans will be spread out but it will still mean the virus will be carried.  What a dilemma 🤔

In 1972, the Scotland and Wales games due to be played in Dublin were cancelled because of death threats, purportedly from the IRA, against the players of the visiting teams:

The 2001 Six Nations was affected by the Foot & Mouth outbreak, so Ireland had to play their last 3 fixtures in the autumn - the 6Ns didn't finish until 20th Oct.

Thankfully we have played Italy . We ( the Scarlets) don’t want the 6 Nations carry on to next season!!
