The Tibet Autonomous Region Mountaineering Management Center and the Tibet Autonomous Region Mountaineering Association jointly issued an announcement and decided to suspend the reception of foreign mountaineering teams in the spring of 2020 due to the worldwide breakout of coronavirus.
At present, China's infection case numbers rapidly decrease, but the epidemic prevention and control task are still arduous. The rapid spread of Covid-19 abroad has brought more uncertainty. Cities have seen imported cases, and the clustered risks should not be underestimated. Epidemic prevention and control has become a top priority and important work. In view of the global severe and complicated situation, coupled with Tibet's high altitude, hypoxia, and limited medical treatment conditions and resources, it is difficult to treat respiratory diseases. In order to ensure the safety and health of mountain climbers, and to protect the interests of tour operators and mountain enthusiasts, it is decided to suspend the reception of foreign mountaineering teams in the spring of 2020.
The time to resume the reception work is to be determined, depending on the global epidemic prevention and control situation.
We will update the follow-up progress report.
