China bans entry of foreigners to curb pandemic

China will temporarily ban the entry of foreigners into the country, including those with visas and residence permits, the Chinese Foreign Ministry announced on Thursday.

The ban, taking effect on March 28 will not apply to diplomatic workers and "C" visa holders, which are issued to foreigners involved in the provision of international transportation services.

The decision comes as China registered no new local COVID-19 cases, while for over a week all new cases are imported from abroad.
