Counselling hotlines have been set up in China for those struggling to cope.

    Strict regulations to control the spread of coronavirus in China are taking a toll on mental health as people are confined to their homes for weeks.

    Health professionals say millions are struggling to cope with anxiety and fears over the future.

    Those under lockdown in Wuhan, the epicentre of the virus, are particularly at risk.
