It seems that China will be enforcing a quarantine in Wuhan, the city where the 2019-nCoV Wuhan coronavirus emerged.
This Is Likely To Spark Panic
This is likely to spark panic not only in Wuhan but other cities where cases have been found.
I think the situation on the ground is much worse than the Chinese initially thought. It is highly likely that lower level bureaucrats where hiding the numbers from the Central Committee of the CCP.
In fact reports say it is much worse:
Disease modelling experts from Imperial College, London say the true figure in the city of Wuhan alone – the source of the outbreak – could be 4,000 and as high as 9,700 in the worst case scenario.
