Coronavirus outbreak: Hospitals in China swamped with patients

Hospitals are swamped with patients, leading to an acute shortage of beds while there is a lack of face masks in the markets.

And a growing number of countries are closing their borders to Chinese travellers.

Al Jazeera’s Adrian Brown reports from Hong Kong, which says it will quarantine all new arrivals from the mainland.
