>Due to the corona virus what precaution should we take when we visiting Asian Countries?

Exactly the same precautions you should take anywhere at any time. Wash your hands frequently with soap and hot water. Always blow your nose or and/or sneeze into a tissue then put it into a bin.

Never eat without first washing your hands properly.

Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.

If you're really worried, avoid crowded places such as markets and busy times on public transport. Try to keep about a metre between yourself and anyone else.

Wearing a mask is no use at all unless you a) use proper medical masks b) change the mask every hour or so and c) remove it carefully and wash your hands properly as soon as you've taken it off.

Anti-bacterial wipes, sprays and handwash do not kill viruses.

Airlines do not provide medication, whether there is an outbreak of coronavirus or not.

You should always have proper travel health insurance which will cover you for any medical treatment you need when you're abroad.

Yep - it might have to be a trip to Skegness now!

You could definitely catch something nasty in Skeg!

What's plan B? Stick to the other 'Stans, or have a complete rethink? Are you committed to any costs yet?

...Maybe this is your ideal opportunity to see South Island! Happy to offer tips...

Not only Asian countries. Other countries, even some in Europe, are now updating their infections.
