Amazed the crew of Meir, Morgan and Skripochka haven't refused to return to plague planet Earth. Yes, Soyuz MS 16 is launching soon with their Russian-U.S. replacements and Soyuz MS 15 is nearing the end of its life, but is it anymore riskier staying on board ISS than Wuhan Coronavirus? They could conceivably stay till SpaceX Crew Dragon arrives with the American test crew plus 3 additional seats for the return journey. Roscosmos and NASA should have seriously considered launching Soyuz MS 16 unmanned as a new lifeboat in these hazardous times.
