Coronavirus in South Korea has prompted flight cancellations and factory closures, with reports of capacity problems at ports and airports. As with China’s sudden isolation in late January, airlines around the world have canceled or suspended Korea flights following a surge in virus cases in the city of Daegu, North Gyeongsang province. As of today, there are 1,146 confirmed cases of virus, according to local media.
In addition to South Korea, increasing cases are being reported in countries such as Italy and Iran. Several carriers are canceling or reducing their number of routes to prevent spread of the disease, comply with government mandates, and/or respond to low demand.
