China has been working to contain the outbreak of the 2019-nCoV (COVID-19) virus, classified as a Coronavirus. Due to the outbreak, Chinese authorities imposed a quarantine on the city of Wuhan on January 23, 2020 and have expanded the quarantine to other cities. Since the outbreak of the virus, Travel Health Notices have also been issued for Italy, Iran, Japan and South Korea and the situation continues to evolve with several countries imposing travel bans.

The World Health Organization declared the Coronavirus a Global Health Warning on January 30, 2020. As a result, the Coronavirus is no longer an unforeseen event for travel to China starting on January 24th, 2020, and for travel worldwide starting on January 31st, 2020.
