In the wake of the Novel Coronavirus outbreak, Canada's travel advisory for China has been upgraded. Originally, people had been warned to avoid all non-essential travel to the Hubei province. Now, they are being told that all travel there should be put on hold.\nThe warning, which was updated on January 27, discourages any and all travel to the province. This is being done to limit the spread of this illness.\nTwo cases have already been confirmed in Canada, and measures are being taken to prevent further infiltration by the virus.\nHowever, government officials say the risk to the country and its residents still remains low.\nThe travel advisory is also taking into account the "exceptional measures" by Chinese officials to stop the sickness from spreading even further. This includes limiting Canadians living abroad from leaving the region during the quarantine.\nThe outbreak is also occurring during Chinese New Year, which officially started on January 25.\nIn their advisory, the government says that during this time, there is an increased number of people visiting China and that spending time in large crowds could put people at risk for getting sick.\nThey have recommendations for people who are travelling to the country.\n#China: We have increased our risk level for the province of #Hubei.

Sometimes symptoms will be similar to the common cold, but infected people could also develop difficulty in breathing.\nSARS, which became a huge issue in Toronto back in 2003, is a type of coronavirus.\nThere are no treatments specifically for this type of illness, as most people who become sick will likely recover on their own.
