PostNord is halting all mail deliveries to China from Sweden and Denmark, the post operator announced on Tuesday.

In statements posted on both its Danish and Swedish websites, PostNord said that it was no longer accepting deliveries to China.

“Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, many airlines have cancelled their flights to China. It will therefore not be possible at the current time to send mail to China with PostNord,” the Danish version of the statement reads.

Deliveries from China to Denmark are subject to “large delays”, meanwhile.
