Lockdown measures are increasing across China’s Hubei province to try to control the spread of a new virus that has left 17 people dead.

Wuhan, Hubei’s capital of 11 million people where the virus first emerged, has no trains or planes in or out.

At least four other provincial cities are seeing clampdowns on transport.

There are more than 500 confirmed cases of the virus, which has spread abroad, with Singapore, Saudi Arabia and Vietnam the latest affected.
