    > A district in Shiyan, Central China's Hubei Province has implemented wartime control measures for the next 14 days, including the full closure of all buildings, the first time in China during the national fight against the COVID-19 outbreak, triggering public speculation over whether other areas will follow suit.

    > The district started wartime control measures from Thursday, demanding all its buildings to be fully closed and residents not to enter or leave their homes except those who are fighting the epidemic, according to an announcement published by the local government on WeChat on Wednesday evening.

    > The wartime control measures were put in place after the district reported 137 confirmed cases of infection with the COVID-19, the second highest number in the city of Shiyan, where 562 were reported as of the end of Wednesday.
