The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned Americans against unnecessary travel to South Korea on Monday amid growing concerns about the outbreak of a novel form of coronavirus originating from China.

A notice on the CDC’s website Monday evening urged travelers to “avoid all nonessential travel to South Korea,” citing limited access to medical services in areas where the coronavirus outbreak has been reported.

The article goes on to state the following:

Some patients also have reported diarrhea without other symptoms,” reads the CDC’s warning.
