Vietnam has announced the suspension of all flights to and from China, after declaring a public health emergency over coronavirus.

Despite an earlier ban, flights to Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan will resume operations. 

The government has also stopped issuing visas to foreign nationals who've travelled to China in the last two weeks.

Meanwhile, New Zealand also announced it'll bar entry to foreigners travelling from mainland China from Monday. The ban will be in effect for up to 14 days and reviewed every 48 hours.
