Wuhan is China's most central city and the capital of Hubei Province. It has an urban population of 7.9 million. Wuhan is a famous historical and cultural city, a major financial center, and one of the largest cities in China. However in 2020, Wuhan maps typically show Wuhan as the city most affected by coronavirus.
On this page, we update the COVID-19 situation with a map followed by a table of coronavirus China/world stats. Below that are our Wuhan's Location in China Map and Hubei Province Map.
1. China Bars Entry to Foreigners Due to the Risk of Imported Infections
To fight the continuing spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019), China has decided to temporarily suspend entry into the country for all foreigners. This ban also applies to travelers who currently hold valid tourist or business visas, have a residence permit, or qualify for the visa-free policy. These new rules are effective from March 28, 2020.
Entry with a diplomatic visa, service visa, courtesy visa, or C visa will not be affected. For other necessary or emergency entry into China, travelers will need to apply for a new visa at the Chinese Embassy. Travelers with visas obtained after March 28th will be allowed to enter China. This measure is only temporary according to the notice from the Chinese Embassy.
2. The schools in China have started to reopen in April. April 7th is the registration date for students who will graduate in 2020. Other students are expected to return to school in mid-April.
