The market has been shut down since the corona virus outbreak, which caused for more than 500 confirmed cases and 17 people that have died. Today we learn about a sense of anxiety that in Wuhan as the Chinese city (11 million people!) goes into lock-down in an effort to control the spread of the virus. The authorities have suspended all public transportation, including planes, subways, ferries, buses and trains that goes in and out of the city.
