Movement restrictions in and out of China ‘helping contain’ virus

Tens of millions of people have been restricted from leaving their homes, while residents have to rely on local teams to deliver food.

Russia says it will stop Chinese citizens from entering the country, in an effort to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.

The move comes as China‘s government maintains a close focus on fighting the virus in Hubei province.

But staff and resources are short, and restrictions on movement are being tightened.
