China imposes travel ban on more cities, restricting 56 million people

Orders nationwide measures to detect virus on flights, trains, buses

China on Saturday imposes travel ban on more cities presumably affected by the novel coronavirus that has claimed 41 lives already with over 1300 cases in China and some other countries in Asia, Europe and United States.

The Chines authority has ordered nationwide measures to detect the virus on flights, trains and buses in the efforts to contain the further spread of the killer virus.

China has deployed 450 military medical staff, some with experience combating SARS or Ebola, to a central city stricken by a virus that has killed dozens of people.

The medics, who arrived in Wuhan on military aircraft late Friday, will be dispatched to hospitals with large numbers of infected patients, according to the official Xinhua news agency.

The move marks a dramatic escalation in the central government's involvement to contain the virus, which has killed 41 people and infected 1,287 others across the country. — AFP
