The Chinese authorities have advised people to stop travel into and out of Wuhan. Those living in the city of 11 million people have also been told to avoid crowds and minimize public gatherings. The new virus has spread from Wuhan to several Chinese provinces, as well as the US, Thailand and South Korea.
Basically, do not go to Wuhan. And those in Wuhan please do not leave the city, said National health Commission vice-minister Li Bin in one of the first public briefings since the beginning of the outbreaks. Authorities also admitted that the country was now at the most critical stage of prevention and control. The virus, known also as 2019-nCoV, is understood to be a new strain of coronavirus that has not previously been identified in humans. Major symptoms are fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.
