Wuhan orders closure of seafood market due to viral pneumonia

Authorities in Wuhan have ordered a local seafood market, with apparent connections to a viral pneumonia outbreak, to shut down. The market is located in a heavily populated area, not far from one of the city's busiest train stations. As of Tuesday, 27 cases have been reported, with seven said to be critical. Authorities say they have found no signs of human transmission, however, and all infected patients are being quarantined.
