Coronavirus has also been found in the body of an Indian nurse working in Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, the Chinese government has declared five cities in the country practically 'locked down' after the death of 18 people affected in coronavirus.

Beijing's warning, as a precaution, is that no aircraft will fly in those five cities and no train will leave. Residents have been told not to get out of town without crying need.

Indian State Minister for External Affairs V. V Muralidharan said that the affected nurse, Zeddar is undergoing treatment at Asir National Hospital. Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has written a letter to External Affairs Minister S. Jayashankar to ensure that the coronavirus sufferer is treated quickly.

Experts suspect the virus has spread from the city's seafood and fish markets in Wuhan. Various types of wildlife meat were sold illegally in this market. The "source" of the virus Wuhan, Huanggang, and Izhou cities have been declared "lockdown".

Located in the port city of Hubei province, there are about 110 million people living in it. Terrorism has been halted in the city since the train was suspended indefinitely. A few hours after the official announcement about the same, a similar order came to the residents of Huanggang. One million people live in this city. At midnight the public transport system, including the train, was closed. Two more cities were declared 'shut down' at night. In addition to the train and airplane, ferries and buses are also closed. Army stations have been taken down at these city stations. Guardrails have been set up at the entrance of the station.

"It seems like the last days of the world," wrote one of the city's detainees on Chinese social media 'Weibo'.
