Hong Kong is suspending all cross border high speed rail and ferry services and limiting flights to mainland China as it seeks to stem the spread of the new coronavirus.
Key background: Hong Kong officials have discussed cross-border travel restrictions for days, and initially wanted to stop passengers from the mainland transiting through Hong Kong International Airport, a major transport hub. However, that plan has been met with resistance from local airlines.
Mainland China has stepped up its travel restrictions put in place ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday. Major celebration events were cancelled, while tour groups were banned from leaving the mainland in a blow to what is country’s peak tourism period. Millions are stuck within lockdown zones in at least 17 cities across the country, while the holiday period has been extended by three days.
In the U.S., the State Department has advised people to avoid all nonessential travel to China as it increased its travel warnings.
