[Huatai Info] - on Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia Outbreak

Dear Sirs,

As everyone has noted,Chinese Government is now taking measures in combatting against Novel Coronavirus Pneumonia. We have received various inquiries from our Clients on whether vessel’s calling at Chinese ports would be effected due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

We have checked with China MSA and noted that no Chinese sea port had been officially announced lockdown, except for the inland river port of Wuhan, where the virus is believed to have originated.
Meanwhile, due to the end of public holidays of Spring Festival has been extended to 2nd February and the ports are taking strict prevention and control measures to deal with the virus, the loading/discharging rate may slow down.
We suggest Members whose vessels are scheduled to call at Chinese ports in the near future, to keep close contact with their local agent so as to get the latest port information, and to remind their crew members to take necessary protection measures.
Any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are ready to render our assistance 7/24. 
Best regards,
Huatai Marine Teams
