North Korea Bans Chinese Tourism Over Coronavirus Fears

Several foreign tour operators said North Korea will begin banning foreign tourists starting Wednesday.

According to Reuters, the ban is in response to the spread of a new coronavirus outbreak in China.

The virus has killed nine people and spread to several countries including Japan, Thailand, and the United States.

The vast majority of tourists to North Korea come from China, Pyongyang’s main supporter.
