With the outbreak of a new coronavirus strain from Wuhan, China and indications of human to human transmission, Wuhan’s local government had shut public transport on midnight 22 January 2020 to halt the outbreak of the virus.
This notice means that, with respect to all travel insurance policies purchased after 10:00 am on 23 January 2020, Chubb will treat any claims related to the new coronavirus in Wuhan as ‘known risk’, which an insured person should mitigate against by not travelling to Wuhan, as the claim will not be covered.
For more information on the coronavirus, please check the World Health Organisation website.
Chubb will assess all claims in accordance with the facts of each case, the Policy Wordings and the applicable Certificate of Insurance. Your cover will depend on the type of plan you purchased and your particular circumstances.
