Travelers around the world are being urged to be vigilant in the wake of the pandemic, with the United States the most affected country, according to travel advisory information released by the World Health Organization (WHO).
According to the WHO, travellers are being advised to be prepared for potential travel restrictions in the US and Canada, with travel advisors issuing a travel warning for travel to Australia, Canada, Mexico, Singapore and South Korea.
The WHO also warns travellers to avoid the risk of the virus spreading on public transport in Mexico, especially in the city of Veracruz, which has been hit by a large outbreak of the coronavirus.
Travelers in the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates, as well as the Philippines, will also be on the watchlist, with authorities urging people to avoid travel to the region.
The United States has also been hit hard by the pandemics and the pandemaker virus.
The government has banned the sale of certain items and restrictions have been imposed in several areas, including in New York City and Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, some countries, including the US, are also reporting that travellers are already making their way home, and that they may have to cancel their plans if the virus spreads further.
The US has issued travel advisions for a number of other countries, with some states issuing travel warnings for Texas, New York, New Jersey and Maryland.
However, the US government has yet to issue a travel advisory for Peru, the Philippines and South Africa.
The pandemic is expected to continue for at least another two months.
In some countries that have been affected, people are reportedly making their return flights to the US in the coming days, with New Zealand expected to announce flights back to the country in the next couple of days.
In the US the health advisory was issued after US President Donald Trump said he would take steps to ease travel restrictions.
“The President has instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security to expedite the implementation of all travel advisices issued by the US Government and the Secretary has advised US citizens to check in for any scheduled travel to or from the United State and other destinations,” a White House statement read.
