Safety and budget -wise, should I buy a heavily discounted ticket now to SE Asia in January 2010? More details inside...

I am calling on the powers of mefi to help me in a time of swine flu fear...
I am afraid of the Swine flu getting worse and I hear it's pretty serious in those hot tropical countries.
While at the same time I would like to know whether there would be cheap flight deals leading up to Jan next year, based on historical trends. Any bargain travel shoppers here who can speak from experience?
If it is unlikely, I will have to just take up the bargain and hope that Swine flu doesn't get too bad in around 5 months time!
If likely, I will play the pragmatist and just wait it out a little more for the next hot airfare deal.
