Roads in villages or residential areas were blocked by residents in an unofficial capacity. In fact the Chinese government made it clear that this was illegal. The city I visited was under restriction and when the crisis escalated with confirmed cases in the province, public transportation was suspended. I reached Lanzhou last Friday as confirmed cases were declared, so businesses were closed. However some buses still operated. Inter-city trains and flights were reduced by operators, I understand, in response to the lower traffic volume. This was nation-wide. All entertainment venues (cinemas, bath-houses, karaoke) were shuttered nation-wide as early as CNY eve, upon order by the central government.
Was reading your last post. Quite an ordeal and I'm glad you managed to get out. If this thing is not brought under control in upcoming weeks, I'd expect that all flights to/from China will be suspended.
