EXCLUSIVE: China is re-shuttering all of its cinemas nationwide as it continues to battle coronavirus, according to Deadline sources.

The country’s national film bureau has contacted all exhibitors today saying that venues must be closed again, with no immediate timeframe for re-opening.

The news has begun to spread across popular social media service Weibo.

The spread of COVID-19 has slowed considerably in China recently, with only one locally-transmitted case recorded in the last three days.

China was the original epicenter of the virus when it first emerged in the city of Wuhan.

In total, the country has seen 81,340 confirmed cases, a figure now overtaken by the U.S., which is still in a much earlier stage of the virus spread. »
