A Senior from the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) said, “If you are still planning to travel to the COVID-19 affected countries then you will be in an aircraft with people from multiple countries, whose travel and get in touch with histories you'll not know. Since there's no screening before boarding a flight, there's no thanks to tell if a passenger is already unwell.”

Unless one is willing to require the danger , i might say wait and await a minimum of another 10 days.
