Hong Kong has closed all but two land crossings with the Chinese mainland to slow the spread of the virus

 

BEIJING AFP, 4 Feb, 2020 - Three more Asian countries confirmed coronavirus infections on Tuesday among citizens who had not travelled to China, as Hong Kong reported its first death from the disease and millions more people in Chinese cities were ordered to stay indoors.   


The toll in mainland China soared to 425 after 64 more people died, the biggest single day tally since the first fatalities emerged last month. More than 20 countries have confirmed cases of the virus, prompting the World Health Organization to declare a global health emergency, several governments to institute travel restrictions, and airlines to suspend flights to and from China.   
But it has continued to spread with Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand on Tuesday reporting new infections that were not imported from China.   


In a sign of growing concern about a spread to other densely-populated Chinese metropolitan areas, authorities in three cities in eastern Zhejiang province limited the number of people allowed to leave their homes. Three districts in Hangzhou now allow only one person per household to go outside every two days to buy necessities, affecting some three million people.
