Vietnam to stop issuing visas for Chinese tourists over coronavirus concerns

HANOI, Jan 30 (Reuters) - Vietnam will stop issuing visas for Chinese tourists, the government said on Thursday, after the Southeast Asian country detected three new cases of coronavirus.

Cross-border trade between Vietnam and China is not encouraged at the moment, the government said in a statement.

“The outbreak is spreading rapidly, and in a serious manner,” the statement said. (Reporting by Khanh Vu;Editing by Elaine Hardcastle)
