Defer non-essential travel to Wuhan city following increased Novel Coronavirus cases

The Chinese authorities on 22 January advised people against travelling to Wuhan (Hubei province) unless necessary. This follows an increase in reported 2019-Novel Coronavirus (‘2019-nCoV’) cases. More than 540 confirmed cases have been reported nationwide, with the majority detected in Wuhan. Elsewhere, the authorities have imposed increased travel restrictions and comprehensive screening measures at various urban centres. Disruption will likely be exacerbated by the influx of travellers during the Lunar New Year holiday period until 8 February. Guest should maintain flexible itineraries, allow additional time while passing through transport hubs and follow all official directives.
