Multiple flights between North Korea and China canceled amid coronavirus scare

Route to Vladivostok not affected, however, according to the Russian embassy in Pyongyang

Multiple flights between the North Korean capital and Chinese cities operated by Air China and the DPRK’s Air Koryo have been canceled amid concerns over the spread of a new coronavirus, the Russian embassy in Pyongyang and other sources confirmed on Friday. 

The Russian embassy also said in a Facebook post Friday morning, however, that no further restrictions have been made on entry or exit to the DPRK through the Far East Russian city of Vladivostok.
