Zhangjiagang in East China’s Jiangsu province has taken a series of measures to contain the spread of pneumonia caused by the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

Officials have been urged to prioritize people’s security and health. All departments have been told to report accurate information and inform locals on how to protect themselves from the virus.

Nine local hospitals have set up fever clinics, with doctors and nurses staying at their posts to fight against the epidemic.
