Passengers departing from countries with a high epidemiological risk, such as the Republic of Congo, Seychelles, South Africa, Egypt, Algeria, Pakistan, Zimbabwe and Saudi Arabia, will have to isolate themselves for 14 days before traveling to China.
Passengers have also been warned that they must take direct flights to China and, if there are no direct flights, they must be single-stop flights.
