Interesting Data About Chinese Travellers Who Went Overseas From December 2019 till January 23rd 2020.
Interesting data for epidemiologists has emerged about the number of Chinese travellers travelling internationally for the months of December 2019 and January 2020. According to figures from China
, 5.4 million Chinese travelled to various overseas destinations in the month of December 2019 while for January 2020 till the 23rd, more than 6.8 million Chinese had travelled to various overseas destinations.
