Our Response

On January 30, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak an international public health emergency. The virus was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and continues to expand. 

As a result of the WHO’s declaration, many airlines have suspended or reduced flights to China, and more are expected to do so as the outbreak worsens.

As personal protective equipment and other supplies needed to combat the spread of the illness are in short supply in areas most heavily impacted, and a reduction in commercial flights could create barriers to response, Airlink is working with nonprofit partners and airlines to support efforts.

Airlink continues to monitor the changing situation in other countries most likely to be impacted by the virus.
