Refrain from travelling to China: India tells its citizens

A few days ago, India had issued a travel advisory to its citizens asking them to take certain health precautions during their visit to China to avoid getting infected by the Coronavirus. However, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has now revised its travel advisory taking into account the worsening state of health affairs in China.

According to the news reports, in the wake of more cases of Novel Coronavirus (nCoV) being reported in China, India has asked its citizens to avoid visiting the Republic of China.

Formerly, the advisory written by the ministry said that travel-related cases of Coronavirus are appearing in several countries, and it is advised that all non-essential travel to China is best avoided. Now, the ministry has clearly asked Indians to refrain from travelling to China.

Airlines in India that operate flights to Southeast Asia have directed the cabin crew members and pilots to wear N95 masks and abide by all possible precautionary measures. A few flights have also been cancelled.

Reportedly, IndiGo will temporarily stall the operations of its Delhi-Chengdu daily flight from February 1 to 20, 2020, and the Bengaluru-Hong Kong flight. In addition, the airline is avoiding any layover for its staff in China.
