The outbreak of new coronavirus pneumonia in Wuhan has continued to spread. As of 8 am today (21st), a total of 219 cases have been recorded in many provinces and cities in the Mainland. The reporter checked the high-speed rail ticket network including the China Railway 12306 website and the MTR official website, and found that from today to February 19, there are no Wuhan high-speed rail tickets for sale, and the MTR official website even pops up "No relevant train information.
"Hong Kong 01" has been enquired with MTR.
This morning, the reporter searched the 12306 website for the high-speed rail services coming from Wuhan today. Although the website showed two trains, G79 and G305, they were not available for passengers to buy tickets. However, for the same train G79, there are still different types of seats on the high-speed train from Beijing to Xi'an. In other words, the train is still operating as usual, but it does not stop at Wuhan station.
In addition, the reporter also tried to search the MTR official website. From today to February 19, the ticket sales network only displays "No relevant frequency information". "Hong Kong 01" has made an enquiry with MTR and awaits reply.
