Wuhan has been branded a “zombieland” by frantic locals after Chinese authorities told residents they are not allowed to leave yesterday morning.
Pictures from inside the city paint an apocalyptic picture as medics patrol in hazmat suits and gas masks.
In an upload direct from Wuhan, a man can be seen lying unresponsive on the floor as concerned individuals look on.
It appears as though the man was waiting in line for paperwork when he collapsed while wearing a disposable face mark for protection.
As the scene unfolds, a medic dressed in all white approaches the man and bends down to offer assistance.
The situation was witnessed by a line of six people but the incident does not seem isolated as other residents have posted images of the same scenario.
One woman can be seen frantically pointing to the floor as a team of medics in hazmat suits attend to a man lying unconscious on the floor.
So far the coronavirus has taken the lives of 25 people with over 600 cases confirmed worldwide.
Cases have been confirmed in China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and the United States.
Reports suggest the individuals came through London from Wuhan and were flagged after developing symptoms associated with the disease.
Initial tests could not immediately isolate what the condition might be and medics are “erring on the side of caution in the meantime”.
Symptoms include a fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.Read more
