The infamous coronavirus outbreak hit Wuhan, China last year in December. It was recently declared as a public health emergency of international concern by the World Health Organization.
The virus, known to spread by person-to-person contact has given everybody quite a scare. People are taking extreme measures to ensure they stay away from this disease.
Items like plastic bags, helmets, and bottles are being used by people for covering themselves to stay away from this virus.
Companies are also taking strict measures to curb the spread of Coronavirus. For example, British Airways suspended all direct flights to and from mainland China. In a statement, it said “We apologise to customers for the inconvenience, but the safety of our customers and crew is always our priority. Customers due to travel to or from China in the coming days can find more information on BA.com.“
People are also being advised against traveling to mainland China.
