Airlines are asked to contact with Wuhan Tianhe International Airport to support passengers on cancelled flights.

CAAV have also requested local airports to tightly check and monitor all passengers who show signs of having the virus.


On January 23, two other Chinese citizens were quarantined at Ho Chi Minh City-based Cho Ray Hospital after they tested positive to novel coronavirus (nCoV) that caused an acute pneumonia outbreak in Wuhan city, China.

China sealed off millions more people near the epicentre of a virus outbreak on Friday, shutting down public transport in an eighth city in an unprecedented quarantine effort as the death toll from the disease climbed to 25, according to AFP.
