Beijing city cancels major public events including Chinese New Year temple fairs due to coronavirus outbreak

The decision was made by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism in order to “put people’s lives and health first.”

The announcement about public events in Beijing follows a decision to shut public transport services in Huanggang, a city close to the epicenter of the virus outbreak.

Previously, the city of Wuhang, where the outbreak originated, was put on lockdown with transport services suspended and residents advised not to leave the city.
