Wuhan, a Chinese city of 11 million people, recently suffered a coronavirus outbreak which has since spread all across China.

Initially, the city was cordoned off with no one being allowed to exit or enter apart from trucks supplying medical aid and instruments.

However, due to the rising number of infections, Chinese authorities have expanded travel restrictions to a few other cities near Wuhan.
