Bhutan said on Friday (March 6) that it had banned the entry of tourists for two weeks after it confirmed its first case of the coronavirus in a tourist who arrived from neighboring India. The tiny Himalayan kingdom, which is heavily reliant on high-end tourism for foreign exchange, said a 79-year-old American who entered by air from India on March 2 had tested positive for the virus. The health ministry said the patient had been put in quarantine in the hospital in the capital Thimpu.“The government will impose two weeks restriction on all incoming tourists with immediate effect,” the ministry said in a statement. “This is to enable rigorous monitoring, source assessment of infection and mitigate the situation.”
