China urges citizens to delay foreign travel over virus fears

China urged its citizens to postpone trips abroad as the country expands a massive effort to contain a viral outbreak that has killed more than 100 people nationwide.

The travel recommendation was issued "in order to protect the health and safety of Chinese and foreign people", the National Immigration Administration said in a statement.

Chinese nationals took almost 150 million trips abroad in 2018, according to Xinhua.
