With the number of newly confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) continuing to rise on the Chinese mainland, it’s hard to deny that venturing outside has become more of a nuisance as of late.

Recently, government authorities have been actively telling people to avoid leaving the house (少出门) and gathering in groups (不要聚会). In Jiangsu’s Changzhou, a video of a police officer telling residents in a neighborhood to “avoid going outside, don’t gather, if you go outside wear a mask,” went viral online, with the officer announcing the orders in Mandarin, Changzhou dialect, English and Japanese. The area is said to have a relatively big expat community, according to CCTV.

Aside from Wuhan and Hubei province, where the virus has spread the most, major Chinese cities such as Hangzhou in Zhejiang province were placed under a lockdown that went into effect on February 4, according to South China Morning Post. The report noted that only one person per household could leave their residence every two days in three of the city’s districts. However, some companies resumed work yesterday, February 10, Hangzhou Daily reported.
