North Korea suspends Vladivostok flights, expands virus containment measures

New rules also mean suspension of "events, ceremonial visits, and meetings" during month of February

North Korean authorities have suspended Air Koryo's Pyongyang-Vladivostok flight route, a note distributed to foreign residents in the country on Friday said, amid a broader expansion of measures to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus.

News of the suspension comes just days after it emerged Air China flights between Pyongyang and Beijing would be suspended until at least the end of February.
