PanARMENIAN.Net - The Foreign Ministry is urging Armenian citizens to temporarily avoid visiting Iran, China, Japan, South Korea and Italy in the wake of the rapid spread of a novel coronavirus that has killed at least 2800 people worldwide, most of them in mainland China.

Should you choose to visit one of the countries, the Ministry recommends that you at least follow updates by the Armenian Health Ministry and contact Armenian Embassies if necessary.
