BEIJING/MANILA, Philippines — China’s eastern port of Wenzhou on Sunday became the first city outside central Hubei province to impose quarantine measures due to the new coronavirus outbreak, which claimed its first recorded fatality outside China.

Wenzhou, a city of 9 million on China’s east coast, is some 435 miles from Wuhan, the city in Hubei where the virus first broke out in December.

Families will only be permitted to send one family member out of the house every two days to buy necessities, according to city authorities. Residents have been advised not leave their homes except to seek medical treatment or related reasons.
