(Reuters) - Walmart Inc (WMT.N), the world’s largest retailer, said it is temporarily limiting “non-business critical travel” to China amid the coronavirus outbreak.

"(Walmart is) temporarily limiting all non-business critical travel to, from, and within mainland China, and conducting all planned meetings virtually", Walmart International Chief Executive Judith McKenna said in a note bit.ly/2RKTX4l on Friday.

Originating in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the flu-like virus has resulted in over 250 deaths in China thus far.
