Daily life in Wuhan during the coronavirus lockdown – in pictures

The Chinese city of 11 million resembles a ghost town,

with empty streets and biosecurity checkpoints

– though a new hospital was built in days.

The number of people

who have died from the Wuhan coronavirus,

known as 2019-nCoV,

in China has climbed to 425,

while more than 20,000 people there have been infected.

Cases have been reported in other countries,

including the US, Canada, Australia, Japan, South Korea,

India, the UK, Germany and France
