Foreign Office advises against all global travel because of coronavirus

Britons are advised against ‘all but essential’ travel to anywhere in the world as coronavirus sees borders around the globe shut down.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the fast-paced nature of the crisis meant that it was now necessary to issue global guidance. The advice takes effect immediately and lasts for the next 30 days initially.
Announcing the new travel guidance in the House of Commons, Mr Raab told MPs: ‘UK travellers abroad now face widespread international border restrictions and lock downs in various countries. The speed and range of those measures across other countries is unprecedented.
‘So I have taken the decision to advise British nationals against all non-essential international travel.’ The Foreign Office said Britons who decide that they still need to travel abroad should be fully aware of the increased risks of doing so – including the possibility of being stranded overseas if restrictions are put in place.
