WHO advises no measure for travelers amid China's pneumonia outbreak
By Guo Meiping

The World Health Organization (WHO) doesn't recommend "any specific measures for travelers" regarding the recent pneumonia outbreak of unknown etiology in China's Wuhan, according to a press release by the organization on Sunday.

A total of 59 pneumonia cases have been confirmed during the outbreak, and SARS, MERS and bird flu have all been ruled out, the Wuhan health commission reported on Sunday. 

WHO said there is limited information to determine the overall risk of this outbreak, so it "advises against the application of any travel or trade restrictions on China."

The organization suggests travelers seek medical attention and share their travel history with medical personnel if they experience any symptoms suggestive of respiratory illness during or after travel.
