Millions in China on lockdown as coronavirus spreads, vaccine is being created



China has closed off 2 cities: Wuhan (武汉市) and Huanggang (黄冈市) with a combined population of more than 18.5 million people. This is an unprecedented effort to try to stop the spread of a deadly new virus.

China has put cities under lockdown for those reasons. Travel is restricted for millions of people. The coronavirus crisis is in China. The World Health Organization isn't declaring this a global health emergency. A coronavirus vaccine could be ready for testing this year.
