The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has stated that is closely monitoring developments related to the Coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan (China) and is actively engaged with the World Health Organization (WHO) Secretariat, International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the US Centers for Disease Control.

According to IATA, WHO is advising measures to limit the risk of export or import of the disease, without unnecessary restrictions on international traffic.
