“There is no immediate risk to the general public,” the WHO said in a statement.
The UK has also suspended its border control measures.
“Travel is permitted in accordance with the guidelines established by the UK Government and the European Union, and a detailed review of the UK’s border controls is underway,” the UK said in the statement.
Australia has a total of 9,000 residents living overseas, including 4,700 in Australia.

Authorities are also restricting travel to certain parts of Australia.
“Travel restrictions are in place at airports in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and at the border with New Zealand, as well as the Australian Capital Territory, and are being extended to the Northern Territory, the Australian states of Tasmania and the Northern Rivers Islands,” the NSW Department of Primary Industries and Telecommunications said.
The Australian Government said it had “limited capacity” to deal with the coronavec virus outbreak.
“The Government will not be able to fully support the coronavesc virus at this stage of the outbreak and is working with the World Bank and other global partners to provide support to affected countries,” the department said.
“This includes a $100 million assistance package for the Australian Health Practitioners Support Fund to assist affected health professionals and health systems to address the pandemic.”
