In Pictures: Beijing hunkers down amid coronavirus outbreak

Updated : 2020-01-30 12:12:09

Fears of a virus outbreak have kept many indoors and at home in China’s capital. Cultural landmarks such as the Great Wall and Forbidden City have closed their doors to visitors. Nearly deserted shopping malls have reduced their operating hours and those restaurants that remain open draw just a handful of customers. Streets and subway stations are empty.
