Marriott says its hotels are closing in China and the Philippines due to a virus outbreak.

The company said in a statement that it has suspended operations in China for two weeks to prevent further spread of the virus and the spread of new coronavirus-related cases.

The statement did not say why Marriott had stopped its operations in those countries.

It also said that Marriott is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help people stay healthy while at home and with family members.
