Airbnb and Brian Chesky refusal to refund due to covid19 pandemic is wrong.

The problem is simple.
Many places have cancelled social gatherings affecting by what is now declared a pandemic by the WHO. The NBA has even completely suspended the season from playing! let alone going empty stadiums without fans! The governor of California has decreed that any social gathering of 250 people or more to be shut down.
Airbnb says that is "not enough to warrant refunds"
refunds have been given out for events, hotels have given refunds, even united airlines, maybe of the more vilified airlines, has given out refunds for flights to LA!! Coachella is canceled, the marathon, the list goes on. Yet airbnb does not consider this enough for you to cancel your reservation. They expect you still to go to your reservation and just there i guess? self quarantine while you there? Its disappointing to say the least.
We call on the CEO Brian Chesky to make the right move and be humane during this time and give proper refunds to those affected by this.
One look at Airbnbs Facebook page tells the story of many people who have been trying hard to get their trips refunded due to this issue. So please sign!
Airbnb has a chance to save a reputation that is starting to go sour.
