旅行 warning to 日本 upgraded over coronavirus fears

Australian travellers are being urged to "exercise a high degree of caution" if they are travelling to 日本 due to the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus.
The Australian Government today lifted 日本's travel warning to level two.
"At level 2, there are more or higher risks than what you would typically find in a large Australian city," the Government's Smart 旅行ler website warns

The warning comes based on advice from Australia's Chief Medical Officer Professor Brendan Murphy, who warns travellers there is a heightened risk of local transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) in 日本.

"This significant increase in reported cases in 韩国, the continuing number of cases in 日本 and more recently, the small outbreak in northern Italy and the increasing cases and particularly deaths in Iran," Professor Murphy said.
"All of these developments and other countries are cause for concern and all of those countries are making very extensive efforts to try and contain the outbreaks."
