Americans should 'reconsider travel' to China over virus: State
The US State Department has encouraged Americans to "reconsider" any plans to travel to China amid a deadly outbreak of a coronavirus that originated in the city of Wuhan. The State Department also issued a stern warning for its citizens not to travel to Hubei province, where Wuhan is located. So far, 82 people have died as a result of the virus, all of them in China.
The department noted that last week it ordered the departure of all non-emergency US personnel and their family members from Wuhan. "The US government has limited ability to provide emergency services to US citizens in Hubei province," the department said in a statement on Monday.
