Taiwan's Central Epidemic Command Center has issued Level 2 travel alerts for 10 European and Mid-East countries due to the spread of the coronavirus.
The countries include Iceland, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark and Austria, as well as Bahrain and Kuwait.
Under the epidemic command center's three-tier travel advisory system, a Level 2 Alert requires arriving travellers to observe 14 days of self-health management by minimizing time spent in public, wearing a face mask and checking their temperature twice daily.
Level 1 travel alerts have also now been issued for the United Kingdom and Ireland, as well as 14 Schengen countries.
A Level 1 Watch asks travellers to observe local virus response regulations and says incoming travellers should observe 14 days of self-health management.
