Public transport stopped in Heihe, China

The authorities of the Chinese city of Heihe in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang have decided to suspend the operation of public transport in connection with the worsening situation with the spread of the new coronavirus, Interfax reports.

The ban reportedly applies to both buses and taxis. Earlier, from January 1, residents of Heihe were prohibited from leaving the city by plane.

According to the Heilongjiang Health Committee, four new cases of acute coronavirus were identified in the city on Monday, all of whom were previously listed as asymptomatic.

Recall that Heihe is located on the banks of the Amur River and is connected with the Blagoveshchensk automobile bridge.

We will remind, in December 2019 in the Chinese city of Wuhan in the province of Hubei recorded the first case of an unknown pneumonia. The infection began to spread rapidly, first across China, and then around the world. The new coronavirus has been named SARS-CoV-2.

In March 2020, the World Health Organization announced the coronavirus pandemic. Western intelligence services then accused Beijing of hiding or even destroying some information about the origin of the outbreak of coronavirus infection. Moreover, Washington said the coronavirus was deliberately created in a Chinese laboratory.
