China’s Wuhan, the city at the epicentre of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), will allow non-residents of the city to leave if they show no symptoms and have never had contact with patients, local authorities said in a statement on Monday.

Meanwhile, people who are not quarantined and seeking treatment for special diseases can also leave in batches.

Wuhan, home to over 11 million people and capital city of central China’s Hubei Province, suspended buses, subways, ferries, flights and trains for outbound passengers on January 23 to halt the coronavirus spread, which so far has sickened over 77,000 people and killed at least 2,595.
