Fifteen Chinese cities are now in lockdown as Wuhan coronavirus continues to spread through the country.

The combined populations of the 15 cities total 57.2 million people.

All 15 of the cities are in Hubei Province, of which Wuhan is the capital.

The strictness of each lockdown order varies from city to city, but all are experiencing a halt to public transport services.

In Wuhan (population 11 million) and nearby Huanggang (population 7.5 million), markets and cinemas have been closed, roads have been shut, and train stations and airports closed.
