As coronavirus continues to spread all around the world, flight prices have dropped extremely low.

CBS News reports, Google Flights costs under $100 from Chicago to Miami right now and around only $400 from New York to London.

Google Flights currently has $276 round trip tickets from Norfolk to Los Angeles for a trip at the start of April.

As the virus continues to spread, people are being forced to self quarantine and avoid large places. As a result, flight prices seem too cheap to pass up.

"Bought a $53 flight to Miami in May for a bachelor party. The show must go on," one person told CBS News. "I'm not any more concerned about catching [coronavirus] in Miami than I am in New Jersey."

Before you plan to grab cheap flight tickets, CBS News warns travelers to be considerate of the deadly virus and too take precautions.

"Depending on what's going on in October, I'll probably wipe my seat down with a Clorox wipe and wash my hands a bunch," a woman told CBS News. "Other than that I'm not stressing about it!"

Before you book your flight, CBS News warns travelers to check to see if they can get a refund. Delta announced Mondaythey would waive many fees and willing to work with customers to adjust travel plans.

CBS News also warns those who want to cash in on cheap flights to be cautious if going to a high risk area. The CDC recommends canceling all trips if going to a high risk area.

When returning back from the cheap trip, many companies are asking employees to self-quarantine before returning back to work.
