In the name of Allah the most gracious the most merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

Corona-virus, by the will of Allah, is epidemic disease which effects one after another. Islam guides in term of such diseases not to travel in the affected areas and suggests the other people to keep away from the affected area.

  مثال الجمع حدیث لاعدوی مع حدیث لایورد ممرض علی مصح۔ وجہ الجمع ان الامراض لاتعدی بطبعھا ولکن جعل اللہ مخالطتھا سببا للاعداء فنفی فی الحدیث الاول مایعتقدہ الجاہلیۃ من العدوی بطبعھا وارشد فی الثانیۃ الی مجانبۃ مایحصل عندہ الضرر عادۃ بقضاء اللہ وقدرہ۔ (شرح النووی علی مسلم 1/35)

And Allah knows best
