Northeastern China, Wuhan hit by new wave of COVID-19 Updated: 2020-05-13 10:01:08 KST

Fifteen COVID-19 infections have been reported in China's northeastern Jilin province, raising concerns again, of another outbreak in the country.
The Jilin government has ordered the closure of all but the most essential services in the city of Shulan and instructed its citizens to remain inside.
With the exception of medical and essential workers, all residents are prohibited from leaving their homes.
Just one family member will be allowed out to buy daily necessities.
All bus services in Shulan have been halted.
Taxis are also prohibited from driving into or out of the city and train services are suspended until June 1st.
The measures come as the virus in Shulan has already spread to the nearby Liaoning province.
The original epicenter of COVID-19, Wuhan, has also been locked down again, after six new cases were reported, after the city reported no cases for a month.
Quarantine officials have been dispatched to Wuhan, and have been conducting nucleic acid tests to trace the source.
The Chinese government is concerned the resurgence in infections may again lead to the postponement of the country's largest political event of the year, a meeting of legislative delegates and political advisers known as the 'Two Sessions'.
