stocks took a tumble

 

 

I was expecting this to happen. A lot of the American company's manufactured goods come from China. Also, this pandemic is hitting a lot of big and small businesses in many countries.

South Korea is one of the few countries that continue to accept Chinese citizens. Many Chinese students arrived this month.

Canada, China, Hong Kong: Update: Air Canada extends suspension of flights to China until 10 April and Hong Kong until 30 April

Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) 2/25/2020 4:09 PM (Eastern)

 

Air Canada is extending its suspension of flights between Canada and mainland China until April as the number of coronavirus cases — and the number of countries affected — continues to grow.
 
The country's largest domestic and international airline announced Tuesday that service to Beijing and Shanghai will be cancelled until April 10. The company initially grounded flights for the month of February after the federal government issued an advisory warning against non-essential travel to China.
 
"Air Canada will continue to monitor this evolving situation closely in consultation with the Public Health Agency of Canada, Transport Canada and Global Affairs and will adjust its schedule as appropriate," says a statement from the company.
 
Air Canada normally operates direct flights to Beijing and Shanghai from Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.
 
The carrier also is extending the suspension of its daily Toronto-Hong Kong flights until April 30 due to reduced demand, and says it will accommodate customers already booked on those flights on its non-stop Vancouver-Hong Kong flights.

Indonesia: Update: Roads, trains disrupted as torrential rain hits Jakarta

Swiss Info 2/25/2020 10:25 AM (Eastern)

 

Torrential rain brought floods to Indonesia's capital on Tuesday, paralysing large parts of the city as rescue workers used boats to navigate streets turned into murky, brown waterways to get people to safety.
 
Indonesia's weather agency linked the rains to tropical cyclones that brought bad weather to southern parts of the archipelago. It also warned of high waves in the seas south of Java island.
 
Jakarta governor Anies Baswedan said more than 200 neighborhoods were affected by the floods.
 
"We are concentrating on mitigation. We have prepared all resources to be deployed," he told reporters, adding that evacuation posts had been set up with health facilities.
 
A spokesman for the Disaster Mitigation Agency said it was too early to assess the number of displaced or the scale of the damage in Tuesday's floods. The army and police would help to rescue people, said the spokesman, Agus Wibowo.
 
Jakarta's Search and Rescue Agency said on Twitter its teams were helping people in the west and east of the city.
 
Police warned of road closures and disruption to trains.
 
State electricity utility Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) said power was shut off to more than 1,600 substations to ensure safety.

Hong Kong, South Korea: Travelers from South Korea who are not Hong Kong residents are banned from entering the city; other restrictions reported; tour operators cancel trips

Intelliguide 2/25/2020 9:19 AM (Eastern)

 

From media reports: The South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported travelers from South Korea who are not Hong Kong residents will be banned from entering the city from Tuesday, 25 February, while the Security Bureau has warned Hongkongers to avoid the destination in light of the worsening coronavirus outbreak in the country.
 
"From 6 a.m. on Tuesday, non-Hong Kong residents traveling from Korea and those who have been to the country in the past 14 days will be barred from entering Hong Kong," Secretary for Security John Lee Ka-chiu said at a press briefing on Monday night.
 
Passengers aboard the four flights returning before the ban goes into effect will undergo a health assessment by Port Health authorities if they have been in South Korea's most infected areas – the city of Daegu and surrounding North Gyeongsang province.
 
Those showing Covid-19 symptoms, including fever and cough, would be sent to a quarantine camp, while those with no visible symptoms would be placed under medical surveillance, Secretary for Health Sophia Chan Shiu-Chee said.
 
"The situation in South Korea now shows a pattern of community outbreak, so the Hong Kong government has decided to take stronger measures," she said.
 
From 6 a.m. Monday, 24 February, a 14-day quarantine will be compulsory for any Hong Kong residents who are traveling from the area believed to be the epicenter.
 
Hong Kong's Security Bureau's red travel alert means visitors should avoid nonessential travel to South Korea as it is associated with "significant threats," the SCMP reported.
 
On Monday, four major Hong Kong tour operators canceled all trips to South Korea until the end of March.
 
EGL Tours said it would cancel all tours departing for South Korea from Tuesday to 31 March.
 
Hong Thai Travel, Big Line Holiday and Wing On Travel similarly pulled trips through the end of March, all starting from Monday.
 
Hong Thai announced more conservative cancellations affecting only trips to the capital Seoul until 15 March.
 
Travelers affected by tour cancellations caused by the outbreak of the virus should contact the operators regarding refunds or rescheduling.
 
The cancellations came after South Korea raised its coronavirus alert to the highest level, following a sudden spike in the number of infections, the SCMP concluded.
