Chinese Premier Li Keqiang visits Wuhan

Beijing (HRNW)- Chinese Premier Li Keqiang visited Wuhan, the epicenter of an outbreak of a new corona virus that has killed 80 and infected more than 2,700 people, as Beijing sought to signal how seriously it aims to respond to the developing crisis.

Meanwhile, Wuhan said it would suspend visa and passport services for Chinese citizens until January 30 to strengthen control of the virus, the city’s exit-entry bureau said in a statement on Monday.

The number of deaths from the flu-like virus in Hubei province, including Wuhan city, climbed from 56 to 76 overnight, health commission officials said, with four deaths elsewhere in China. While a small number of cases have been confirmed in more than 10 countries, no fatalities have been reported elsewhere.
