BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s city of Yichang in central Hubei province will loosen travel curbs adopted to rein in a coronavirus outbreak, allowing people to move in and out, the government said on Friday, in a statement on its website.

It will also allow the return of people from outside the province, employing a “health code” monitoring system that makes use of mobile telephone.
