Default Medical tourism and Coronavirus

So on Feb. 25th, I booked my trip to go to Spain for my revision surgery. There were only 2 Spanish citizens that tested positive for Coronavirus and they wern't even in country.
Yesterday there were only 45 cases, now overnight there are 69 new cases for a total of 114. Germany is a bit ahead.
I am anticipating that a travel ban to and from many European countries will be suspended.
I feel that I order to protect my grandchildren, our kids and my husband that I should highly and prudently consider postponing.
Any thoughts?!
