Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin told reporters on Thursday (Jan 30) that 14 Chinese nationals from Wuhan in Hubei province, who arrived at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) on Tuesday, were sent back.

This follows the Malaysian government's decision to ban tourists originating from Wuhan and Hubei province as a measure to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
