LONDON (Reuters) - Standard Chartered is advising its staff to avoid business travel to the Chinese city of Wuhan following a virus outbreak that has so far killed 26 people and infected more than 800.

A spokesman for the British-based, Asia-focused lender said the suspension on travel would last until further notice.
