Coronavirus: Walking through Beijing’s near-empty streets – BBC News

Movement for much of China’s population of 1.4 billion people is, to some extent, restricted in an attempt to slow the spread of the potentially deadly coronavirus.

The lockdown is most strict in Hubei province, where the outbreak started, but elsewhere there are compulsory quarantine periods and people are just not stepping out much.

Some businesses remain closed and life is anything but normal.

China Correspondent Stephen McDonnell donned his face mask and took to Beijing’s all-but-empty streets to see how people are coping.
