US warns its citizens to not travel abroad

United States Department of State issued a "Global Level 4 Health Advisory" to its citizens on Thursday, saying that all travel abroad should be avoided as the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread to more countries around the world.

All American nationals should return to the US from countries where it is still possible to do so, the department pointed out, warning that any potential "travel plans may be severely disrupted" due to suspension of operations in many airlines and cruise lines.

The department's Bureau of Consular Affairs announced yesterday that "routine visa services in most countries" will be suspended due to the virus pandemic.
