Coronavirus impacts NZ tourism

From Morning Report, 8:12 am on 28 January 2020

One of the country's biggest tourism operators is expecting to lose 10,000 visitors a month after China suspended all overseas group tours because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Industry leaders says re-scheduling of tours and thousands more cancellations are likely until the suspension lifts.

As of Tuesday morning the death toll was at 80 with more than 2000 people infected with the disease.

Eleisha Foon has more.
