“We are keeping a close watch on WHO and the kind of advisories they are issuing. So from the tourism perspective obviously we are concerned, we do not wish to see the number decreasing. Unfortunately in a situation like this, it’s all about safety and safety is paramount.”

Meanwhile, tourism industry stakeholders are being urged to keep abreast of the latest developments and advisories in relation to the coronavirus outbreak.

This as the World Health Organization has announced a global health emergency this morning.
