China and HK may be barred from Asia Team meet


Off to Manila: SEA Games gold medallist S. Kisona has made the nine-member women’s squad to the Asia Team Championships.

PETALING JAYA: The status of next week’s Asia Team Champion-ships in Manila, the Philippines, is in quandary as two badminton nations – China and Hong Kong – may not get to compete.

The Philippines government have temporarily barred non-Filipino travellers arriving from mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau to their country as preventive measures to contain the coronavirus from spreading.
