The United States has authorised the voluntary departure of US government employees and their family members from Hong Kong in light of the outbreak of a deadly coronavirus, the State Department said on Tuesday.

According to a department spokesperson the authorisation was made “out of an abundance of caution related to uncertainties associated” with the disease. Departure is not required and the US consulate in Hong Kong remains open to the public.
