It is not quite OT.

OP was preparing buying a ticket. So if the time was right, OP's travel could be impacted. That's why the caution.

I believe this is beyond the point of blame. The situation is simple - given the spread now, flying with CX seems to have a higher risk than other airlines (Note - there is no report (yet) that employees of other airlines have been affected, other than CX). That's why the caution.

Tour groups do not fly CX, but UA. So no.
