The same warning is already in place for Iran, South Korea, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, Japan and Italy.
A latest report from Johns Hopkins University in the United States counts 91 confirmed infections in Singapore, 95 in Iran, 977 in South Korea, 84 in Hong Kong, 31 in Taiwan, 10 in Macao, 170 in Japan and 322 in Italy.
All trips to Hubei Province in China, the epicentre of the outbreak, have been advised against by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which also discourages all unnecessary trips to the rest of China.
Broadcaster DR reports that the rights of people with planned trips to affected countries depends on the Ministry’s official guidelines for the country in question.
If the ministry directly recommends not travelling to the destination, passengers can cancel journeys and be refunded the full cost of their trip.
In the absence of direct foreign ministry advice against travel to the destination, and if neither the airline nor travel company has cancelled flights, then you do not have the right to a refund.
