Wuhan has become a ghost town due to a deadly virus, see the footage



WUHAN is a city in eastern China with a population of 9 million, with an area of ​​as many as 11 million, which many have never heard of until it became the epicenter of the epidemic of the deadly new coronavirus.

Wuhan has now become the site of the largest quarantine in history, along with the nearby million cities of Huanngang and Ezhou and other smaller cities. A total of 20 million people are under quarantine announced by Chinese authorities on Wednesday to prevent the daunting rapid spread of the virus.



According to quarantine rules, which came into force on Thursday, train and plane traffic to and from Wuhan, as well as public transportation within the city – buses, subways and ferries – were abolished.

People check for fever and vehicles for animals that can be laptops

In addition, authorities ordered that all citizens on the streets must wear protective masks. Everyone entering and leaving the city is examined by thermal scanners to detect those with fever, which is one of the symptoms of the infection.

Vehicles are also being inspected to transport wild animals believed to have transmitted this coronavirus to humans. The local market, which sells domestic and wild animals, including birds, snakes and bats, has been closed beforehand.

Although services were still allowing cars to leave Wuhan on Thursday afternoon, roads leading to and from the city soon began to be blocked, NPR reports.

And in Ezhou, a city of one million people, rail transport is interrupted today. In nearby Huanggang, a city of 7 million people fifty miles from Wuhan, residents are not allowed to leave the city without special permission, reports the New York Times.

Streets ornate because of New Year's Eve but deserted

The empty streets of Wuhan are an even more eerie sight because of New Year's decorations – the Chinese New Year is celebrated on Saturday, followed traditionally by a two-week celebration with the Spring Festival and the Festival of Lamps. On this occasion, hundreds of millions of Chinese people usually travel for family or vacation, both inside China and abroad.

Shots coming from the city can see soldiers with masks blocking the entrances to the city's train station.

Residents began quickly emptying store shelves to prepare for eventual food shortages and forced residence in homes.

“I'm trying to stay home and go out just to buy the groceries,” a man by the name of Fu told AFP reporters at a small supermarket, where some shelves are already empty.

“I haven't been out of the house in two days,” another young man told them, adding that when he last went to the store, surgical masks were selling at a high price of 50 yuan, or $ 7.

But driver Shi Chengwei was optimistic about the AFP conversation: “New pneumonia is our common enemy. I believe the Wuhan people will be able to come out of this as a winner.”

The phrase “Wuhan is sealed” has been typed over 1.2 billion times by Thursday night on the Weibo social network, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter.

“We consciously avoid going out, meticulously disinfecting and wearing masks. But we lack food and disinfectants and need more resources. We hope everyone can understand that we feel like this is the end of the world,” one Wuhan resident wrote on Weibo.

In the central M + mall, otherwise packed with customers in the days before New Year's Eve, all stores were closed.

One taxi driver admitted to reporters that he was still driving despite the danger because he needed money, stating, for example, that the price of a bowl of noodles had doubled.

The Wuhan Health Commission also states that people wait in queues in front of hospitals and clinics and that they are missing beds. A new medical inpatient is being urgently built with thousands of beds for the sick. Although work has only begun on Thursday night, the plan is to build by February 4th.

Some claim that quarantine was established too late

Some Chinese on social media have blamed Wuhan residents themselves for consuming wildlife through which the infection was suspected to have spread.

“Do people enjoy wildlife so much? Wasn't SARS a lesson enough?” one user wondered on Weibo, alluding to the SARS epidemic in China and nearby countries in 2002-2003. in which nearly 800 people died.

Numerous Chinese on social media have criticized the authorities for claiming the measure was too late and that the true scale of the epidemic was being disguised, prompting some to demand the resignation of Wuhan Mayor Zhou Xianwang.

Specifically, the disease has spread to virtually all Chinese provinces, including the Autonomous States of Hong Kong and Macao, but also to Taiwan, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, the United States, Saudi Arabia, and possibly the United Kingdom, with four people are quarantined and are being tested.

The death toll, meanwhile, has risen to 26 and the number infected to 830, at least according to official figures. A few days ago, scientists at Imperial College in London claimed that the virus may have already infected 1,700 people, when the official number was less than 300.
