The epicenter of the Virus

Originated in the Wuhan City of China, coronavirus has spread to around 190 countries and has led to approximately 30000 deaths across the globe.

Ever since China was locked down in January, the number of cases has drastically reduced. China cancelled the visas of foreigners, stopped international flights from landing in the country and imposed stringent quarantine procedures to help curb the virus. However, the NHC’s latest report means that the chain has still not been disturbed.
