By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: China has halted the issuance of short-term visas to persons from South Korea and Japan in retaliation for COVID-19 restrictions on Chinese travelers, BBC reports.

However, many other countries including the United States have joined on imposing entry requirements on travelers from China due to the rapid surge in COVID-19 cases.
